I think they went straight to Wikipedia to find out what limestone is used for, The lime sent to Redcar in those PGAs went into the Blast furnaces, The 20 will be a nice addition to TSW, Looking forward to it

Yes this will be a great addition and could also feature on the other British routes too. Providing the sounds are prototypical I will get this straight away. Class 20's are one of my favourite locomotives.

Gotta say I'm getting steadily closer to buying TSW just to run Tees Valley. :)

Be interesting if one can purchase TSW addons in TSW2? Or does one have to purchase TSW1 first?

Thought I would treat myself to this on release day and I'm not disappointed.
There seem to be issues on console looking at the threads but not found anything wrong with PC version.
It looks and sounds good. Controls work well and seem accurate. No silly amount of time to wait for brakes to release like on 31. Very nice to drive and not found any issues yet!
3 scenarios added including a freight run beyond Redcar for the first time although unfortunately in the downhill direction. Just 4 services added but it can be used on some existing ones.
Also in timetable mode on WSR in both nose first and cab first directions. No pairs that I could see.
On WSR the brakes are vacuum as they should be.
The only panic I had was the nose first cab view when you first get in the seat had no visibility out the window, luckily the right arrow gives a much better view so you can enjoy a drive without leaning out! Would have thought that would have been the better default view but no big deal.
A nice touch is the ability to put the headcode discs in any position you want by climbing down and clicking on them with the mouse.
So overall I would recommend it, can't fault it at the moment although only done a couple of services.
It may be the last release on TSW1 and it is a good one. Shame it won't have features like proper wheelslip but I think it is about as good as it could be.
With TSW2 being a let down as far as the UK is concerned, it is nice to have another model to use on TSW1 while we wait for a proper British route to be released in TSW2.

I have really enjoyed this loco and it has many little features around the cab that bring it to life. The hot plate, battery cupboard and many more in the cab stuff. The sounds are good in my opinion and the scenarios are mixed and enjoyable, Only downside is only 3 short service mode (new) services but does sub for other 37 services so brings the total to 35 ish.

I got it too as I said I may!

No doubt about it, it is a beautiful piece of software and it is very nicely modeled, sounds outside are a treat, sounds inside not so much especially when one wants to have the doors and windows open to hear that thrash! Even with yer noddle out the window, the sounds remain the same!!! Is it worth £11.99? Yep.

I see that Yuri has done a very nice reskin pack into a BR Blue and a Green version of this Class 20, you can get it from here - https://www.trainsimcommunity.com/tsw20 ... ocomotives

Cheerz. Steve.

As there is no manual, could some explain why when I set the AWS lever to 'unisolated' the brakes go hard on and the throttle can't be applied? Very annoying

Is there a Change end lever also on the AWS? I may have a go on the 20 and advise.

Yes there is a AWS cab change end lever on the Class 20 as well as the AWS isolation switch, It is located in the same vicinity in the cab as the isolation switch. Most, if not all, of the older British locos in TWS have the two levers.

Ah thank you. I was missing the second bit of the AWS leaver. That's sorted it.
