The superbly detailed EWS Class 66 V2.0 is now available for Train Simulator.
When British Rail’s freight operations were privatised in 1996, EWS brought most of BR’s freight operations, including many locomotives that were unreliable or at the end of their useful life. EWS approached General Motors to seek replacements for the ageing fleet, which saw the Class 66 enter service in 1998. The model was a replacement for the Class 59, from which it used the same body shell but was updated with new internal fittings, control systems, 3,000hp engines and power units. More than 440 models were built, and seeing their success as part of the EWS fleet, many heavy freight companies ordered their own models, including Freightliner, Direct Rail Services and EWS.
The EWS Class 66 V2.0 for Train Simulator is a re-worked model of a previous version, with an updated and improved interior and re-modelled exterior. Available in EWS livery, the model features accurate brake control and centre-sprung brake lever, accurate engine and horn sounds, JGA aggregate hopper wagons and OTA timber wagons.
