GWR Manor Class & Add-on Pack Bundle
The GWR Manor Class package has a British Railways and preservation theme, with the models having the later style of un-lipped chimney:
With 11 finely detailed locomotives in various liveries, 19 scenarios for a selection of routes, tenders with the early and late style emblems, and a set of Just Trains Mk 1 coaches, this is the ultimate Manor Class experience!
Manor Class locomotives were a perfect mixed-traffic design and were as happy hauling a coal train as they were a seven-coach stopping train. Although not a hugely powerful design, the locomotives were well liked and indeed 29 of the 30 built made it to 1964/5 (virtually the end of UK steam operations) which undoubtedly helped nine members of the class make it into preservation.
In their early years the 7800 Class loco’s could be found across much of the GWR system, but by the end of the 1950s virtually all operations were concentrated in South or Mid Wales, where steam power hung on for a little longer than on the main lines.
By the time the Manors came into service the beautiful fully lined GWR livery was no more, but Lydham Manor carried this non-authentic livery in preservation and is presented in this pack in that form.
The GWR Manor locomotive is supplied here in three liveries:
This expansion also includes tenders with both the early and the late style emblems.
Just Trains Mk1 coaches complete with passenger view in the following liveries:
Includes ‘Cornish Riviera’ destination boards.
Please note that the scenarios included with this Manor Class add-on will only work on the assigned routes, some of which are not supplied with Train Simulator and will need to be purchased.

London to Brighton route
Evening Test Run
Drive 7821 Ditcheat Manor on a Sunday evening trip out to Selhurst and East Croydon. This is the loco's return to traffic and is also a loaded test run.
Isle of Wight route
Before WWII the tenders carried the shirt button style emblem (7800) and after the war they carried the letters G-W-R in Gold (as per 7805). These three models can be used with either tender depending on the required period.
This pack is also designed to allow owners to create their own versions of the Manor as the models do not include names and numbers as part of the main mesh; these are added as 'child' objects that can be replaced. The inclusion of the BR Green and BR Black liveries from the GWR Manor Class package are included for this reason.
Please note that these scenarios will only work on the assigned routes, some of which are not supplied with Train Simulator and will need to be purchased.
Somerset and Dorset route
Drive a GWR Manor on a couple of early morning trip workings around Midsomer Norton and Radstock in 1948.

There are huge problems at Bath! There are no locomotives to work the Pines Express down to Bournemouth – the only ones available are a couple of GWR Manors! You are tasked with taking this heavy holiday train from Bath Down to Templecombe.
The roads are all at a standstill due to snow and the regional manager has come to an arrangement with the local schools for their pupils to travel by train instead of bus. You have a heavy train and a difficult timetable to keep to – will you manage it?
