About the game

The first of the heavy freight generation of locomotives and
pivotal in bringing the most successful freight locomotive in the
UK to life, the BR Class 59 comes to Train Simulator in modern DB
Schenker livery.

The original four Class 59s were ordered by Foster Yeoman in
1985 as a replacement to the increasingly unreliable Class 56. For
the design of the Class 59, Foster Yeoman engaged General Motors
Electro-Motive Division, one of the leading builders of
locomotives. Derived from the EMD SD40-2 with a Class 58 style cab,
the Class 59 was designed to haul heavy loads such as stone or coal
across the UK, with a 3,300 horsepower engine.

Following Foster Yeoman’s order, further Class 59/1 variants
were ordered by Amey Roadstone Construction, and Class 59/2
variants were ordered by National Power, initially as a trial, and
then as an ongoing order to haul coal and limestone hoppers.

Built between 1994 and 1995, the Class 59/2s had different
features compared to earlier variants of the class, including a new
advanced slow speed control for accurate merry-go-round power
station coal trains, more modern batteries and fire safety systems
and also yaw dampers to increase the top speed from the original
60mph (96km/h) to 75mph (120km/h).

Ultimately, EMD’s diligence and flexibility in designing and
constructing such a small order of 15 locomotives opened the way
for the later, much larger, Class 66, which were built on the same
body shell but internally different.

In April 1998, National Power rail operations were taken over by
English, Welsh & Scottish Railway, who proceeded to use Class 59/2s
more widely over the network. Class 59/2s are today operated by DB
Schenker and maintained by Mendip Rail at Merehead.

The BR Class 59/2 for Train Simulator is available in DB
Schenker livery as it operates for the private logistics company on
the UK’s rail network today. Also included are JHA 102t bogie
aggregate hopper wagons.

The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the
freedom to drive the DB Schenker Class 59/2 on any Quick Drive
enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through
Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for the North
London Line route (available separately and required to play these
