Class 395 AC/DC Patch

Class 395 AC/DC Patch

27th January 2020 3 By Chris Horsfield

An issue with the 395 in TS is that at Ebbsfleet International, power source is switched between AC/DC mode, depending on the direction of travel. With AI Traffic, this is not simulated, which leads to trains running along OHLE sections with no pantograph raised, and vice versa, trains running along 3rd rail sections with the pantograph raised. Annoying.

Within this download are “AC” and “DC” versions of the DPTS, which for scenario creators, will help massively to ensure that the power supply visuals are correct for the AI trains wherever they are within the scenario.

The versions for the Pantograph forced up have ‘AC’ named on the .bin files, example:


and in the scenario editor they are titled like so:

[395] SET DPTS 1 AC
[395] SET DPTS 1 AC nd np

For trains using the 3rd rail, they will NOT have AC in the bin name or the name in the scenario editor.

Also included are versions with no driver in the cab (denoted with the ‘nd’ prefix) and versions where the carriages are empty of passengers (prefixed with ‘np’). These are very useful for ECS moves and trains stabled in sidings/depots.
