    Built to work top-link expresses, the BR Class 52 spent its days racing through BR’s Western Region and now enjoys retirement on heritage railways. This iconic locomotive design will soon come to life in Train Sim World – further bringing to life our West Somerset Railway diesel gala!

    Use the raw power of two maybach engines to get to a top speed of what exactly?
    Hopefully we can see some future retro line which will be able to use the WSR units on a full speed route.
    Good that a more feature rich environment is coming to the game though

    RED seem to be favourite colour at Dovetail Games studio. Why the logo is blue?

    Awesome, another one for the diesel gala :)
    Adding more variety on the West Somerset.

    Does this mixes in with the AI traffic when you run a service from the 09/47/33 if you have them TrainSim-Dmitri TrainSim-Matt?

    Great loco, you guys are churning them out. Now, if we could get it with some freight and above 25mph... :(

    Ahh wow, didn't expect this to say the very least. This was another DLC mentioned in the game's files for a long time earlier. Just ONE DAY after another announcement and less than a week from another loco DLC release!

    As long as these locos are still very detailed (considering this one has been mentioned in the game files for a long time, I think it's been in development for a while and is probably going to be just fine) and the editor is still in the works, I guess this is... ok. My Steam wishlist is going to blow up at this rate, though, because I'm still only buying these when they go on sale.

    Hope something American is next!

    It does look very nice. Not sure if i will get it, since it can only run on WSR at the moment but i will see.

    Pleased with this! It'd be cool if there like a little package featuring this + the 33 with the WSR. I don't have any of them at the moment and that would motivate me a bit more to do it :)

    Out of nowhere that! We do need these locos to be interchangeable on routes asap. Not sure its fair to purchase a console 52 and 33 then only run them to 25mph.
    Can we cram a charter into GWE and increase the loading distance (fix the trains disappearing off the track in plain sight) to match current dlcs? Pleease

    Loading distance can already be manually changed in some obscure settings file although it would be a lot nicer if it was actually changeable in-game.

    I have the feeling they won't do GWR railtours, but when the editor is released it's a fairly obvious choice for scenarios from the community.

    I have an idea, though- once the length issue described in the last studio update is resolved, could the class 45 and 47 from NTP substitute WSR locos, too? That would be a lot of variety. And, yes, a 45 has been on the route before, as seen in this video:

    This ini file edit isnt available nor is an edit mode 100% confirmed for console.
    PC doesent have the trains appearing and disappearing in GWE. I fear this is why the issue hasnt been revisited.
    From playing dlcs NTP,RSN and MSB. There is more power available or better techniques to get the best from console than was explored on GWE.

    If it's for TSW, and it isn't CSX Heavy Haul, then it is coming to consoles.

    Yeah but will it release for PC and consoles at the same time or do console players have to wait longer?

    Great to see some new loco dlc's for TSW. :) I'm really looking forward to this one especially, because I loved it in TS1. The only bad thing with this is before the editor comes we can only drive on WSR, which is slow and will get boring after awhile even though the loco is interesting.

    Where did you hear this? Is it in the article and I'm just not running off of enough sleep today, or did one of the devs say this somewhere else?

    I might be entirely wrong but I believe that there will be new services to WSR for the Class 52 like they did with the Class 33.

    I thought the 33 had no new services, though... I never really noticed if it did or not, though. Too busy to check right now, even though even though I could use a good drive along the WSR right now, lol.

    I have had quick look and I can confirm that there definitely are some Services for the Class 33.

    That sometimes substitute the Class 47's services. Pretty sure that'll be the same for the Class 52 as well

    The 33 just used one of the class 47 diagrams, a couple of times it actually loaded up a class 33 with a class 47 number on it. As I have the 52 and the 33 that is four loco's for the WSR so I would be interested how that would work in service mode with three diagrams.

    I can't wait till we can make our own service mode as you could make an interesting timetable for the WSR..

    I would like to see some more variation in gameplay for WSR. Some freight vans would be nice. For me there is not an urgent need for more drives up and down the line with another passenger train.

    Also would hope WSR is more populated with parked up stock, rather than only appearing when in use. Ie sidings at Williton, would be nice to have one of these locos parked up.

    I'd be more keen to pick this one up if it was usable on the GWE or NTP as well. I'm still glad more content is being added to the game though

    No new services with the 52, same as for the 33, the loco will swap in for the Class 47.

    However, we have taken the opportunity to update the main WSR service mode a little - details to follow later.

    I know that now, but hopefully in the future it will be as it has been spoken about even if it is isn't currently possible in the current version of the editor.

    Hi Matt,

    Does that mean that if you own the 33 and the 52, in service mode you will no longer see the class 47?

    Thanks.

    No, he means that the 47 comes with the route, so it's the base loco.
    If you own either the 33 or the 52, these can be swapped with the 47 randomly. The 47 will still appear.

    As 925 says - the 47 will appear, the 33 and 52 will be eligible to swap in randomly, all could appear.

    You can make one, but TSW can’t load it, yet anyway.

    No, it means the service trains from the class 47's timetable randomizes locomotives to either the default, the 33 or the 52 every time you start service mode.
