I just wondered if there will be a Class 800 released by Just Trains for the Western Mainlines?
I know there are re-skins of the DTG Class 801, but a 'proper' Class 800 with dual power would be wonderful to drive along the Western Mainlines.
In connection with this - any plans to release an electrified Western Mainlines sometime in the future? Perhaps when the current electrfication project is complete in the real world?

The excellent reskin for the 801 at does have deisel option. Cant switch modes as in real life, but can use a GWR 800 on WML.

Thanks for that "heads-up" on the re-skin. I do have that, but I was just hoping (!) that Just Trains might do an 'advanced' version of the class 800. With the change-over option of diesel/electric traction. Perhaps after they release the Plymouth - Penzance add on for the Western Mainlines?

Well you never know what might happen.. depends on who owns the original 801 and the reskin.
Running the adapted 800 from Plymouth to PAD works fine and much faster than HST, but sounds are a little strange. looks good though. You should check out the GWR sleeper as well.. more reliable than the real ones.Smile

Thanks Meckl - I must give it a try! Perhaps when the Western Mainlines are finally finished, Just Trains (or someone) might do the electrified version?Smile
