The classic steam loco upgrade for Train Simulator 2013. Get this item in Australia in boxed version exclusively from PC Aviator Australia.

This accurately detailed GWR Manor Class expansion features this 4-6-0 steam locomotive in five models in three liveries, all with authentic cabs. Ten custom scenarios, a set of Just Trains Mk.1 coaches, and tenders with both the early and the late style emblems complete the package.

The ‘Manor’ or 7800 Class locomotives were designed and built by GWR and 20 were produced in the late 1930s, just in time to aid the British war effort. The design incorporated GWR’s almost customary 4-6-0 wheel arrangement and the class was considered so good that BR built a further ten machines at Swindon in 1950.

All the loco's in this pack apart from Erlestoke Manor belong to this second batch. All the locomotives were, as you might expect, named after manor houses in the British countryside, mostly those on or near the Great Western Railway network.

The locomotives were designed to be a lighter version of the Grange Class, mainly to allow them to work on lines such as the Cambrian and other weight-restricted routes. This didn’t mean, however, that they only worked on secondary lines – they could occasionally be seen hauling prestige expresses when more powerful locomotives were not available.

This GWR Manor class is pack is British Railways and preservation themed and all the models have the later style of un-lipped chimney.

This GWR Manor Class expansion provides the following loco's in three liveries:

  • 7812 Erlestoke Manor
  • 7821 Ditcheat Manor
  • 7823 Hook Norton Manor
  • 7827 Lydham Manor
  • 7828 Odney Manor

Ten custom scenarios, a set of Just Trains Mk.1 coaches, and tenders with both the early and the late style emblems complete the package.

GWR MANOR CLASS
 
The locomotives were designed to be a lighter version of the Grange Class, mainly to allow them to work on lines such as the Cambrian and other weight-restricted routes. This didn’t mean, however, that they only worked on secondary lines – they could occasionally be seen hauling prestige expresses when more powerful locomotives were not available.

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.

Initially the Manors were not great steamers but over time modifications produced an exceedingly good design, one of those modifications was the chimney style that is included on the models in this pack

    "An exquisite driving experience that leaves the competition standing in the station... I find myself running out of superlatives to describe the Just Trains Manor... I was immediately impressed by the quality of both the texturing and lighting... Top marks to the developer for giving us an accurate viewpoint for the driver... The ambient cab sounds are matched by equally impressive external sounds... Exceptionally well built model... The loco operation was very close to published figures in performance... The scenarios are extremely well constructed and thought out"
