    With older versions of RW, there was the Hitachi Super Express concept, and I have some questions...

    1: What was it like to drive?
    2: Did it have a passenger view?
    3: Was the weird cab view glitch ever fixed?
    4: Can you still get the train?

    Isn't this the unit that is now the 80x supplied with the London to Peterborough route?

    No, this was a different one with that scenario for the Test Track.

    That's a scenario. I'm talking about the unit.
    If they remove a unit (or swap it out) then all the scenarios with the old unit disappear unless those scenarios are updated

    No, that's not what I meant. In TS2012 and possibly before, there was the concept version used by Hitachi as a render when bidding for the IEP. I'm asking about that train. It was used in the scenario I was telling you about, and was not available in Quick Drive in later versions.

    I know. I had the scenario on my list last year even though the unit itself was no longer available because it had been replaced by the IET

    Ah, OK? So was the train removed completely from the game, and does the scenario now use the 801?

    The train was removed, which orphaned the scenario
    There are several scenarios in the London - Peterborough pack which use the 80x unit and loads on the web that use it (especially with the GWR overlay also available on the net)

    Right. Seems odd to remove the train, it could have been interesting. Did you ever drive it?

    Yes, but it was basically the same as the IET because the superexpress was the name for it BEFORE it became the IEP which then became the IET

    I don't think it became the IET/801 on the game, because the SEC was based on the Class 390 while the 801 is based on the Class 395 and to an extent the 170.

    Then again, that might not have been what you meant.

    No, it's not
    Either way DTG removed the old unit
