    Personally speaking I am not here to discuss the price. I don't care what your thoughts are Period.
    Overall I like the pack Its great. Its a nice addition. The BR182 will add more loco variety and playability to the route as goes with the F7 in Warbonnet livery on the Cajon route. I will be seeing if I can put the F7 on an intermodal service :p I will break it.

    My biggest gripe is the RHTT train and the Class 66 Tutorial and training center.
    I was eagerly awaiting to see the tutorial for the 66 as I thought you would have a tutorial on how to operate the RHTT BUT NO it was really a cut and paste job of the SEHS 66 ableit coupling to a same rake of KFA wagons in stead of the EWS MFA wagons. What is the point of having a Class 66 tutorial basically the same as the one you have just completed (THE SEHS Class 66 tutorial). So NO "How to use the RHTT" tutorial what so ever in THE TRAINING CENTER!!! Did I miss the point of what the training center was used for. Also Hats off to the other two Tutorials (although basically the same as inswitch on explain about the brakes accelerate to said point down the line, Brake, reverse, couple up against the wagons haul forward to point stop and uncouple end of tutprial). Yep that bits fine. Also the fact that in the German tutorial you had two moving trains doing stuff as well as wagons and if you looked carefully Ground staff. The F7 tutorial you had the two classes of Loco that appear on the Cajon route and also a selection of wagons in the siding. The RHTT 66 Tutorial you had NOTHING nowt in the sidings, Zilch moving around.... To be quite frank with you it was boring, Also the fact that there was no tutorial on how to use the RHTT .

    If you are going to have the Training Center then make use of it.

    My Second Biggest gripe.

    The RHTT Spray effect or to be brutally honest the lack of it!
    Look at the below video for what it should be like.
    Again to be brutally honest The jet should be slapping the hell out of the rail and not massaging it!!!
    This version in the game is like someone having a wee. Surely particle effects could be used to simulate the spray and as for the Jet I have seen my mates dog wee against the average wall with a Hardier stream than the RHTT one. Not that I often look at dogs having a wee mind.
    The RHTT model is great and is something that is needed for the game but seriously the effects a disappointing.

    Overall I like the pack but lack of effort in the spray department on the RHTT and a suitable How to operate guide in the training center is very disappointing.

    The spray is getting improved. Matt made the team remake it substantially and will come in a future update

    Hello, just jumping in :)

    We hear the feedback on the RHTT spray effects and the team are working on improving this. Below is an attatched screenshot from our development team we are looking to implement soon:
    upload_2022-10-4_16-51-40.png

    And just to state the RHTT and 182 will also be layered onto future UK and German routes respectively moving forwards.

    How does one drive the rhtt? It doesn't appear anywhere in service mode, if I go to train depot and pick the rhtt train and load the service its just a single dirty class 66.

    Thanks for the headsup Alex. looks alot better. Also heres hoping there will be a tutorial in the training center on how to use the RHTT train as well.

    Dave make sure the month you drive is set to October or November.

    The services on SEHS will begin with either 3Sxx 3Wxx or 8Xxx The 3S and 3W services will run as Tonbridge Yard
    - Tonbridge Yard

    Cheers

    As with Clinchfiled the F7 takes much longer to do the services than the time stated (and the time the AI takes for the same service). It is painfully slow going uphill. I did a service that was stated to be 1hr06 and it took 1hr52 to complete, flat out notch 8 no delays. This gave the added fun of passing the same trains again when starting the second half of the trip from the menu instead of returning to free roam.

    The timetable will have been tested with the AI only so I hope I don’t get caught up anywhere like in CRR due to the mismatch of player power and AI power.

    I’ve also done a bug report about the player advice popup coming up when using dynamic brake (with the throttle handle) and it saying to release the automatic brake before adding power when I am actually combining two braking systems and not adding power.

    Are there new Journey chapters for RHTT? If it's layering in on future UK routes too, it would be great to have chapters for each of those too, so you can jump in without having to manually set months etc.

    Yes each loco DLC has their own journeys.

    60mph when spraying. If you go over 60 in the game whilst spraying the tool tip will tell you. In theory you are supposed to stop spraying when you go over level crossings.

    Also, the brake and main res pipes aren’t open between the RHTT wagons. Not a deal breaker but it spoils the immersion.

    I was going to buy the loco pack purely for the RHTT and the price of that didn't bother me as it was nice and cheap so I was thrilled to find this morning that I could buy it individually for £4.99 (I accept I may have missed that announcement). Having played it on SEHS the lighting is incredible but I was disappointed to find the water was miniscule but I'm glad that's already being sorted. The lighting on West Cornwall Local though (where I had created a scenario) was horrendous though and looked as though a Nuclear blast had occurred with the way the shadows were displayed. Also the EM2 control panel lighting makes it hard to see what's on screen. Also totally agree with regards the training. Very lacklustre and a throwback to the early releases training styles. However that being said I've enjoyed what I've played so far and I'm glad to see the RHTT will be ported to other routes in the future and for 4.99 it's an absolute bargain.

    The first thing that made me sad playing this not so bad bundle: Taurus interior textures resolution and lighting. What is THIS? :mad:

    My first impressions are quite positive. For me the F7 in silver/red "Santa Fe" livery is definitely the highlight of this loco pack. I have already created the yellow/silver "Siemens Dispolok" variant of the RT BR182 myself with the LD tool, but the textured SKW version is simply the best. It would have been great to see it also on former TSW2 routes in timetable mode. Last but not least the RHTT is also something special or unique. Of course there are already so many Class66 versions in the game, but on this new dirty version, the spec map with the clean and still damp-looking spray points on the tank really stand out. I still have to take a good look at the supplied scenarios, but carry on. Better still more exclusive content than too much routes.

    ...then we can look forward to the next SOS DLC, the German BR52 steam loco, which is already being teased on posters in SKW and the Trainig Center! ;)

    Well apart from the spray (being looked at) on the rhtt, I'm pretty impressed, especially the weathering, I think the windows could do with some dirt.

    Also the rf controller indicator lights don't work?

    Nice looking engine.

    The f7 looks magnificent.

    On Xbox when you activate DSD when it sounds and you press B it doesn’t cancel it, AWS works fine

    On my PS5 if you press the circle button it doesn't acknowledge it. Physically pressing the pedal does though.

    Man... I'm always here for more F7 and for the cost of a Big Mac (which lasts me about 4 seconds) it was an easy sell.
    I do wish we had some banking comm ability. Never thought I'd see more F7 though as I know CRR wasn't a high seller so I'll take what I can get. The livery is a beauty.
    On to the RHTT next!

    I bought the RHTT train because it is the first track maintenance train that was issued to TSW.

    I've read that American railroads have similar trains to remove contamination from the tracks. Maybe it could be the next DLC.

    I remain disappointed that the new locos don’t add or sub into service mode in the Training Center. It’s a small thing, but it matters to me and I hope it’s not a sign of things to come for route DLCs.
