Game description

One of the most well-liked and successful locomotives of the Great Western Railway, the Castle Class, speeds into Train Simulator in gleaming BR Brunswick Green liveries.

Originally designed by Charles Collett, Chief Mechanical Engineer for the Great Western Railway, the origins of the Castle Class were in the Star Class of 1907, which introduced the basic four-cylinder 4-6-0 layout to steam locomotives. When introduced, the Castle Class was heralded as Britain’s most powerful express passenger locomotive with an average operating speed of 80mph (129 km/h) and a top recorded speed of 108mph (174 km/h).

The first models in the Class were built in 1923 for the GWR at Swindon Works; construction continued at intervals until 1950, by which time 171 locomotives had been built. The first withdrawals started in the 1950s, with the last Castle Class being withdrawn in November 1965.

However, eight locomotives in the Class have been preserved with two currently certified for mainline running. These preserved locomotives are often called upon to haul named special railtour services, including The Cornishman, The Bristolian and The Cornish Riviera Express.

The Castle Class for Train Simulator is available early BR and late BR Brunswick Green liveries, as it operated for BR in the 1950s - 1960s, and includes a Collett 4,000 gallon tender. The model features advanced steam simulations such as a reverser lock, 3D fire in firebox, animated internal valve gear, cab controls animated in exterior view, switchable headboards and coach boards. Also included are BR Mk1 coaches in Chocolate & Cream livery.

The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the BR Castle Class on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for the The Riviera Line: Exeter-Paignton route (available separately and required to play these scenarios).

Reviews for Train Simulator: BR Castle Class Loco Add-On

High speed steam power

The BR Castle Class Loco Add-On is a much needed new steam locomotive DLC for Train Simulator 2015. Fans of steam may feel that their interest is less represented by TS2015, as the game focuses more on European prototypes and modern Diesel railroads. This DLC provides a new, challenging steam locomotive to run that is a true classic. Representing a locomotive still in running condition, modeling is terrific and sound top notch. Included coaches and scenarios increase the value of the content. Keep in mind that the Riviera line is required to use those scenarios, but the other content is compatible with other modes in the game. This is a quality piece of extra content for TS2015 and worth the investment.
