Like trains? Like REALLY like trains? You’ll love Train Sim World on Xbox One – particularly now that another new loco has arrived for service, the Train Sim World BR Class 52 DLC.
The Train Sim World: BR Class 52 DLC is now available to purchase and download on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, putting the BR Class 52 to work. Priced up at £11.99, this isn’t a super cheap addition that you’ll be able to take a punt on – especially as you also need the Train Sim World: West Somerset Railway content in place too – but if you wish to see an old favourite blast through the Western Region, the opportunity is there.
The BR Class 52 Loco is found to be joining the likes of the previously available BR Class 47 and BR Class 09 to further bring to life the heritage festivities of the West Somerset Railway route’s diesel gala. As a loco that defined the standard throughout the 1960s and 1970s, when diesel traction was all the rage, it’s certainly an engine that will become hugely appealing to a range of player.
Yes, you’ll probably need to be one of the many who can nail their colours to the mast and pick up on the most intricate of train details, but with past history proving that the team behind Train Sim World on Xbox One can replicate the real-world brilliantly, this latest content should be considered.
If you wish to know more about Train Sim World on Xbox One then our full review can be take in right now. Give it a read and then head on over to the Xbox Store to grab the Train Sim World BR Class 52 DLC for £11.99.
Please note: Train Sim World: West Somerset Railway is required, as a separate purchase, in order to utilise the content featured in this add-on. Built to work top-link expresses, the BR Class 52 spent its days racing through BR’s Western Region at up to 90 mph, and unofficial records claim they reached speeds of 110 mph, nevertheless, they defined the standard for GWR express operation throughout the 60s and 70s, proving diesel-hydraulic traction could be used effectively. However, they would not last and only 7 of 74 locos survived today and call the West Somerset Railway their home.
