    Excellent, can't wait to drive it :)

    From what I have seen of screenshots the detail is very good, is this an in house development of 3rd party like with some other recent items such as the Class 33.

    Again, there is no animation of the kinematics of the crew. DTG ignores your initial standards of quality model.:(

    I'll probably buy this one pretty soon. Really like that cab, and the overall boxiness.

    I can’t wait to sit in that beautiful looking cab and it’s super nice all of us have the chance to experience it on the same day! Keep up the great work!

    Wiling to bet the next DLC announcement will probably be a US route, sometime in the next couple of weeks.

    the best thing is that you can run all of them on the MSB and RSN! not just limited with a couple of locos locked per route

    Indeed, does that mean more services have been added or is it just a replacement job with both the 182 and 155?
    The other question i ask is did you only release the 155 so quick after the 152 because of the leaked achievements ;)

    I don't even have the DLC yet, so don't take my word for it, but IIRC it comes with 16 new services for RSN and substitutes for other services in RSN and MSB.

    Great loco, controller wheel is super!

    Can someone tell me how to operate with dymanic brakes on BR155?
    I see that it is applied together with train brake or is there also independent dynamic braking mode?

    Why are steam achievements for BR155 still hidden?

    MSB now has a ton of variety if you have all the German DLC, RSN does too but MSB has slightly more. For passenger trains, there's the 146 and 143 with Doppelstock, and for freight, the 185 in 2 liveries (sometimes doubleheaded or with a helper), the 143 , the 182, and now the 155 can all appear. With 5 locos and one cab car drivable on the route, it's more diverse than any other route... RSN coming in second and CSX:HH coming in third.

    You could, maybe, wait until something is announced?
    This topic is for the BR 155.

    From what I heared they unlock when you achieve them.
    Normally they won't be hidden after release TrainSim-Dmitri

    The 155 is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Did the tutorial and scenario as well as a service. Can be used on either DB freight line.
    Beautiful rendering on the looks, lots of switches and knobs , has great sound and the traction/throttle is quite fun and new. One thing I've noticed is the braking, at minimal setting is very strong and quick - caught me off guard quite a few times as well as saved my hiney at a red on RSN ;)

    Big issue with this dlc. Running into tunnels on Rsn leads to sound errors.

    R62A1973 you mean with the corridor the NEC?
    DTG themselves won't do it, as it is not a realistic scenario, think about the different power, catenery, safety systems, etc.
    From the wording of the 'TSW Studio Updates' you could mix the content from the available DLC when creating a new layered service mode.
    But until they are available you can only do what DTG themselves have made available.

    DTG this is hands down the best loco DLC you have produced.

    The attention to detail is spot on, with items like working led test switch, the cab heater with sounds !!! just brilliant and i really do hope you use this as your new benchmark for upcoming DLC as this is exactly what i was was expecting when TSW was first announced , its taken some time but you are finally in the sweet spot of interactivity and functionality in the cab now well done.

    Visually a MASSIVE step forward with the new in cab lighting channel usage, honestly cant stress this enough going back to any other loco now feels over exposed and flat thank you for correcting (for the most part) the frankly horribly over bright interiors please let this be the bench mark going forward as even going back to the recent DB BR182 is hard thanks to the lack of light occlusion in the cab. A note however the sun will still reflect internally on the windshield when above or behind the loco.

    Sounds again nice step forward, really immersive and again a massive step forward even over the 182 well done.

    Layered services YES YES YES and YES enough said where applicable more usage of this feature please.

    This really needs to be considered the minimum required fidelity going forward for loco dlc.

    The horn is just a single note, I thought it was supposed to be a 2 tone, you don't get that with the cab switch, or, via my keyboard, I pressed the spacebar and N but that doesn't work properly!!!
    Apart from that, it's a very nice locomotive, lots of cab switches and it's an art driving the tap changer wheel with your mouse, and with the included Falns hoppers makes it another ideal train to drive on the RSN.

    It's modelled correctly. The BR 155 doesn't have a 2-tone horn.
    Videos of it:

    Not many countries have 2 tone horn. Great Britain have it and some more countries i believe.

    They tested it on PC, and it works on PC. End of story.

    They didn't test it on PS4, and they don't think that PS4 players deserve to have working content anyway - although the £CA$H works, even if you buy the DLC while you are in a tunnel.

    DTG do not expect to retain many PS4 players (they lose well over 90% of them) - so if you buy German DLC on PS4, then it's a one time smash and grab for some £CA$H, and then you can Facebook Off to where you came from - presumably some alien world where people enjoy using consoles.

    If you want any after sales service, you are required to purchase the PC version of TSW. And while you are there - why not get TS2020 on PC as well...?

    The BR 143 intro tutorial was once broken on consoles. It got fixed.
