Train Sim World 3 Thameslink ticks the timetable treats

We’re well used to Dovetail Games pushing content drops for Train Sim World 3. So it should come as no surprise when new timetable treats roll into play. Today, it’s the Train Sim World 3: Thameslink DLC which is front and centre. 

The latest downloadable content drop for Train Sim World 3, is the Thameslink BR Class 700/0 EMU pack. It’s priced up at £12.99. And from there is available for railway enthusiasts on the usual formats. That means, if you are on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC you can add in the Thameslink Class 700. 

Travel the Thameslink lines

A sleek and modern EMU, if you’ve navigated London in recent times, this will be all familiar. Working the Chatham Main Line down to Rainham, it’s an iconic part of the railway system. Replicated in all its glory, it includes a high level of detail, as you would expect from Train Sim World. 

With the interior seating plan nailed, you’ll get to take in the passenger information displays, the driver’s screens and more. There is also the chance for you to move between third rail and overhead power. Oh, and a host of safety boxes are in place to toggle. 

Going by the press blurb and since the release of the Southeastern Highspeed route – now upgraded and extended for Train Sim World 3 – the inclusion of the Class 700 is one that fans have been calling for, effectively completing the passenger timetable. Those requests are now fulfilled and with other locomotive Add-ons available for the route, this takes the total number of playable services to around 700.

There’s more though and players with the London Commuter and East Coastway route Add-ons will also be able to utilise Scenario Planner. That will in turn let them recreate regular Class 700 services from Brighton to London or their rarer trips through Lewes and Eastbourne.

Multiple options are available

And further, a bundle is also available for proper enthusiasts. This is the Train Sim World 3: Southeastern Super Starter Pack for £44.99. This adds a host of Train Sim World 3 content for Southeastern Highspeed. And it includes the Railhead Treatment Train, ROG Class 37 and Class 700. If you’re looking for a perfect introduction to Train Sim World, or who have not played the Southeastern Highspeed route before, this will be of appeal. 

The Train Sim World 3: Southeastern Super Starter Pack is on the Xbox Store. It’s playable on Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S. The Train Sim World 3: Thameslink BR Class 700/0 EMU Pack is there for £12.99 too. 

Expect to find the same new content on PlayStation and PC. Just remember, ensure you have the base game of Train Sim World 3 in your library first.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
