Just watch the WCML consist formations had first at the DVT / Up end unlike the Liverpool St services.

A good reminder, I think most folk familiar with WCML loco hauled sets remember it was.loco at the 'country end' and first at the 'London end' of the train.

Too bad we don't have any WCML from Rugby and southwards, it would allow the use of mk2 with mk3 buffet mixed formations.

You are indeed correct deltic009 the loco was normally at the Northern end of the consist however this was always subject to change, if the DVT had a cracked screen or faulty speedo the electric would run onto the Southern end of the train & haul the DVT back to London. This was a relatively common occurrence, , we also mustn't forget that mixed Mk 2+MK 3 Buffet occasionally worked North of the border, this usually occurred when their was a MK 3 set out for an exam or if Diversions had caused sets to be in the wrong place come the start of play one morning.

I have been watching the class 90 project grow from the very early days & Waggonz deserve all the credit they are receiving for it, it looks superb as does the DVT. Let us hope now that Armstrong Powerhouse can provide a brilliant soundset to go with it as that will be the first class 90 in any simulator with decent sounds. I look forward to this release highly & of course my money is at the ready.

Regards

Yep, the mk2s did get north of Brum quite frequently.

With kind permission from AP I have a set of Virgin mk2s done so mixed formations can happen. Just doing a set of 47s to go with.

It's been a while since there has been any update on here or the Waggonz Facebook page. I'm not wishing for an update but lets hope that Chris and Dave haven't had to rebuild the DVT again.
Thanks

Why don't you'll at WAGGONZ just wait till September and release it for TS2014. I think that would be better :) Anyways TS2013 stock is compatible. So it's no big deal. Looking forward to some updates - hopefully a video of the electrics with sound.

There's . all new with TS2014 other than fixes and new routes.... It won't effect the model in anyway, 2013 or 2014 release.

I would believe it indeed, after 1 and a half years working on the 377, I've only driven it from Brighton to Lewes once :D

Do you care to share the experience? :lol:

I suppose it's like route building, it's never as fun driving your own route as it is to drive routes built by others :lol:

Good to hear she's now out on the rails being test driven by the engineers - hope all went well and soon we can all see what she can do when the rest of us get our Germans on her :P
Class 40's enjoyed their working life so much they whistled whilst they worked
