    Take a class 769, 197, 230 or 800 for a drive. I this would be a great suggestion!

    The problem with the 769 is it's only operating on part of the Wales and Borders network, In-game I'm sure you're aware we only have the South Wales Mainline (aka South Wales Corridor), there's no way DTG will produce a train that has no track to run on..
    Now if they wanted to make the Wales and Borders network extension then the 769 would be an obvious and welcomed bundled unit..

    The 197 is not yet completed nor is the South Wales Metro that it will run on so that won't happen any time soon.

    A similar problem with the 230 is it has currently only run test runs between Chester and Bidston and also Chester and Crewe, two lines that are also not in TS currently.

    As for the 800, absolutely! Get those unripe green bananas on the SWC, there is a mod available if you're interested > https://superalbs.weebly.com/train-sim-reskins.html (scroll almost to the bottom of the page)
    Also whilst we are on the subject of mods there is a class 769* it requires the Armstrong Powerhouse Class 319 and this mod by MajorWales > https://sites.google.com/view/majorwalesdesign/reskins/TFW

    *Note: there are no diesel sounds with this mod unfortunately.
