Description Edit | History

As the first diesel locomotives to be built at BR?s Darlington Works, the Class 24 was built as part of the British Rail Modernisation Plan in the late 1950s.

The Class 24 was a Sulzer Type 2, Bo-Bo diesel-electric locomotive built between 1958 and 1961, incorporating numerous elements such as off-the-shelf standardised components used for manufacture, including a Sulzer 6LDA28 diesel engine and a 735Kw British Thomson-Houston (BTH) electric transmission, producing a total of 1,160hp resulting in a top speed of 75mph (120km/h).

Built at BR?s Derby, Crewe and Darlington Works, Class 24s could be seen running services initially around Derby and Crewe, but eventually across the British Rail network hauling both passenger and freight. Fifteen of the original 20 locomotives were put into use on the Southern Region as the Kent Coast electrification scheme was behind schedule, and could also be spotted in the Eastern Region, London Midland Region, Wales and Lancashire.

Class 24s also took over Condor freight services from London to Glasgow, replacing Class 28s, and became the foundation for the later Class 25 model.

The first Class 24 to be withdrawn from service was D5051 in November 1967 and by 1979, all but three Class 24s had been withdrawn from service, 14 of which were scrapped before receiving a TOPS number. The final locomotive, 24081, was withdrawn in October 1980.

Today, only four of the Class have survived into preservation, D5032 and D5061 at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, D5054 at the East Lancashire Railway and 24081 at the Gloucestershire & Warwickshire Railway.

The BR Class 24 for Train Simulator recreates the locomotive as it operated for British Railways throughout the UK in the 1960s, and is available in British Railways corporate blue/grey livery. Also included are BR Mk1 coaches in corporate blue/grey livery and 40T YGH ?Sealion? ballast wagons.

The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the BR Class 24 on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam.

Also included are scenarios specifically for the Weardale & Teesdale Network route (available separately and required to play these scenarios).
