The player driven model features all 5 cab seating positions (cab1 driver and secondman, cab2 driver and secondman, and the ballast tamping machine operators seat). Head-out views are placed on DR73106’s platforms, just to the rear of cab 1.

DR73106 also comes with a trailing unit, just like real life – this is an integral part of the machine. A wealth of detail has been included in this model, from the hoses on the ballast tamping machine right through to the filaments in the headlamp lightbulbs. It also features high resolution textures which make it ideal for 4k.

Three scenarios for the East Coast Mainline South (London to Peterborough) are also provided with the pack:-

DR73106 Driver Training Operation
You will be moving DR73106 from sidings at Sandy and driving on to Hitchen before undertaking a short brief of how to use the tamping machine. Once this has been carried out, DR73106 will be stabled overnight at Hitchen sidings in readiness for the night shift engineering crew.

Proper Pea Soup
You will be moving DR73106 from Hitchen to Peterborough. The weather is atrocious this morning, so be very careful. The maneuvre out of Hitchens Sidings is a bit tricky, but once you get on the mainline, it’s plain sailing all the way to Peterborough.

It’s F-Freezing
Today you will be driving to Hatfield to carry out some emergency track maintenance – once complete, you will run DR73106 up to Hitchen and store the tamper in Hitchen Up Yard Siding 4.

Scenario Requirements:

– ECML London to Peterborough
– European Loco & Asset Pack
– RSC Regional Railways Class 101
