    Hello, I just have a few questions about the NTP heavy freight pack.

    1. I’m aware the 08 and 40 sub in for WCL, but do they sub in for any other routes?​

    2. Can you also drive passenger services in timetable mode using the class 40 on NTP?

    3. Is this pack worth it?​

    Many thanks in advance :D

    1. The Gronk can be used on GWE Diesel (substituting for that that pack's Gronk), on WSR (substituting for the 09), and on TVL (you might need to have GWE Diesel to activate the layer). The Class 40 can be used on WSR (substituting for the 47/4), on ECW 2020+ECW Diesel (only 1 service, substituting for the 45/1), on SEHS (dunno which DLC adds the layer for this (WSR, NTP, or TVL), CCL (again dunno which DLC adds the layer for this (WSR, NTP, or TVL), and on WCL (substituting for the 45/1).

    2. The Class 40 adds 0 new services for NTP, you can only operate it in the same 24 scenario as the 45/1, and the 47/4.

    The 40 does add the freight services which without the pack can't be done but not sure how many services it is.

    The 40 can be used on passenger services and to follow on from the other post I just made it adds freight services which can be operated by the 47 and peak as well.

    Yes it is most definitively worth it and adds a lot to NTP especially considering the very decent price.

    The Heavy Freight pack also ads a freight layer to GWE Diesel Legends (with the Class 40 and tankers).
    The Class 40 substitutes into most if not all railtour services provided on other routes by the NTP locos and coaches.

    To also correct shimarin post’s errors, TVL and WSR do not add layers to any route for railtours, TVL has its own 08 which can be substituted by the Heavy Freight 08 without any other requirements, and as stated above the Heavy Freight pack adds a fair few services to NTP with both the included vans and tankers. All the freight and passenger services in NTP can then be driven by any of the three large locos but not the 08 which has its own shunting services.

    It is definitely worth getting and is one of the best value for money DLC in TSW, even at full price. The Class 40 is a good model too, with two variations to the front of the loco.

    1. Yes, when you have DLGW you can use be class 40 and br class 08 on GWE, probably there are other examples + railtours on some routes like on ECW or SEHS. Usually when br class 45 or br class 47 in br blue can drive br class 40 can too.
    2. Yes
    3. IMO yes, but it's my opinion. That's actually a nice change to NTP. You also get some shorter services for br classes 47, 45 and 40 like Sheffield-Leeds (you drive Huddersfield-Leeds) or like 3 "light engine "shunt" run" services in area of Manchester.

    1. That activator iirc is NTP
    2.There are some new services, but no br class 40-exclusive like freight (Mostly TEA tankers but also 12t vans) or like 3 "light engine "shunt" run" services in area of Manchester.

    TVL comes with an 08.

    It adds 0 new passenger services. It adds a substantial number of freight services.

    I'd definitely recommend the heavy freight pack, it more activity to the route and lots of interesting and different services like shunting coaches into and from platforms.
    I think it's one of the best DLCs made and I hope DTG do more like them

    I think DLGW is also a good DLC and is similar to HFP, but works with GWE. And HFP adds feight to it.

    One attractive feature of the HFP is that the Gronk shunting services chain together into two nice little day-on-the-job strings.
