    Now here, I am proposing some new liveries for the Network Southeast Class 205 ‘Thumper’ DEMU Add-On for Train Simulator. In case you don't know which liveries I'm talking about, here are some pictures of them.

    British Railways Green:

    British Railways Green with Orange Upside-Down Arrow (Don't know what it's officially called):

    British Railways Green with Yellow Warning Panel:

    British Railways Green with Yellow Warning Panel and Black Upside-Down Triangle (Again, don't know what the livery's officially called):

    British Rail Blue:

    British Rail Blue with Black Upside-Down Triangle (Once again, I don't know what that part of the livery's officially called):

    British Rail Blue and Grey:

    Now as always, I will link the websites I found these photos on to avoid plagiarism.

    I really do hope that Dovetail Games, or whoever's officially in charge of making add-ons for Train Simulator sees my proposal, and decides to make the add-on, and then make it available for Train Simulator. As always, please tell me your thoughts/opinions on my proposal. Your voice really matters to me.

    P.S. I now just realized that those arrows and triangles I was talking about earlier indicate the diesel side of the rail car, at least that's what I believe from visual perspectives.

    Paypal handles that. They're British, so prices are in pounds, never had an issue paying them Euros.

    Paypal automatically converts currency so instead of charging pounds and messing everything up it just charges it in USD. It converts it.

    As said above, the STEAM version is actually a cutdown of the Armstrong Powerhouse version (it even lists AP as the producer on the steam version) and the AP pack includes all the variants you ask for.
    Only reason to buy steam versions is to give DTG a percentage or manage your licenses in one place but the AP versions are generally "richer"
    Only thing this seems not to be the case for is Wherry Lines

    The inverted black triangle is to inform station staff which end of the train has the guard/luggage compartment. The liveries above are British Railways, Southern Region Green and British Rail Blue.

    I can thoroughly recommend the ArmstrongPowerhouse 205 or any of their products.

    I've been using Paypal for many years, never had a problem.

    The version of the Class 205 on Steam is by Armstrong Powerhouse and there is probably an agreement they cannot release different liveries.

    This is the AP version of the Class 205 with 11 liveries including BR Plain Blue and BR Blue/Grey
    https://www.armstrongpowerhouse.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=45_84&product_id=163
    Have a look at the page for more info
    and then have a look at the manual in pdf form
    https://armstrongpowerhouse.com/free_download/manuals/APC205_Manual.pdf
    It comes with a simple installer that does everything and you then install the extra stock files, as an installer, and it is ready to run on any route.

    You can buy using PayPal without requiring a PayPal account - I buy all my add-ons from Steam using PayPal
