    If DTG get the performance improvements in the sim it would be great to see an extra layer on the GWE timetable with 180s

    These should be done in a pack with the Class 165 and perhaps the branch lines too. So many possibilities if this were to be done. Pretty please DTG.

    Great Western Blue (BR Blue). It's a nickname kinda for Great Western Legends.

    When they weren't breaking down, the 180's were actually quite useful traction particularly for routes (such as Cotswold Line off peak) where a 2+8 HST was a bit too much capacity.

    Come to think of it, Oxford to Worcester as suggested earlier in another thread, would be an ideal route to complement the traction.
    (See, I can like modernish stuff... :D ).

    I would certainly like to see this added to GWE and think it would make a great loco add on for the route.

    the special livery certainly would be good to find especially if it’s like the 395012 and 395025
