It looks awesome!

Not that it's shown or mentioned initially but a pre-refurbishment CEP/BEP in the pack would really be the icing on the cake!
No matter if not, it's still totally suitable for a couple of my routes as it is. :D

I have watched the first ten minutes of the 44 minute preview and I am seriously impressed. There is a lot to take in!

Didn't see this coming, I assumed the next AP release would be something on more modern lines. Will definitely be purchasing this.

The lack of Passengers is the one thing that lets recent AP releases down.

Once we had different repaints of a train where you had a separate version for each livery
Like the different repaints of the Mk3 Coaches in the Kuju folders
Which worked well because it was not reliant on other parts

But newer releases from AP and other places use a lot of scripting to give people different features
So it not a straight forward process placing a item on the track as you need to check what other numbers/letters/figures are required after the loco/unit number

It is a catch 22 between multiple variations of a single loco/unit or keeping the setup simple

We still do, newer stuff from AP etc still has separate folders for each livery.

Yeah, some features useful but many more just "gimmick" and hardly ever get used by scenario writers, and there are also some that are automatic.

I find heavyly scripted AP traction gives a lot better frame rates than the newer DTG traction, not that I notice on my PC these days, as I got a high spec machine a couple of years ago

I buy it just for the sake of it going by that video. I haven't use TS for a couple of years as I'm using OR.
The features on the 411 is as real as it gets. Especially that additional camshaft/resistor graph. AP have been doing extra homework on this.
I was waiting for the wiper to throw out some windscreen wash😊.
There is a little flaw for the batch that had the smaller head code box, they had tapered windscreen windows.

Thanks

Out now!
Bit pricey at £29.99 but is fantastic so worth it! :D :D
Edit:
So I've had a little drive and and its great so much detail and they nailed the look of the unit!!
Juts as I remember them in service. :D :D
