For this add on for Train Simulator we recreated the Dutch passenger coach series "Plan E" in very high detail. This coach series was an important part of the passenger rolling stock fleet of the Dutch Railways in the second half of the twentieth century. Of the passenger coach class the following coach types have been built:
- Second class, later first class
- Third class, later second class
- Combined first and second class
We consided this add on to be a special one. It contains a very detailed series of passenger coaches of the Plan D 7800 series (3rd and 2nd class) that were in service for the Dutch Railways in the second half of the 20th century. The virtual version of these coaches that were already available in Dutch Classics 2 and Megapack 1 has almost completely been redeveloped in more detail than we ever did before. Both the exterior and interior of the coaches has been recreated in high detail and in all versions that these coaches were active in.
The Dutch Classics Megapack 1 contains all the rolling stock from the add ons Dutch Classics 1 and 2. You find the complete Plan D class passenger coaches first/second class, the Plan D dining cars and the so called 'Bolkop' coaches (named as such for their rounded front and back). The Plan C class mail coaches, based on similar design as the passenger coaches and the Plan K class of combined first class and second class coaches in all editions can be found in this add on. The coaches were meant for express trains in both domestic and international services.
Dutch Classics 2 is a nice addition to Dutch Classics 1 and contains a series of historic Dutch passenger, diner and mail coaches. Of the Plan D class coaches this add on contains the nine-window B/C (second class/third class) coaches and the dining cars. The "Plan K" class is the combined first and second class coach that is included in this add on. The "Plan C" mail coaches that were built after the same design are also represented in this add on.
Our first add on for Train Simulator contains a part of the Plan D and Bolkop passenger coach series which have been in service for the Dutch Railways in domestic and international express trains in the second half of the twentieth century. The coach series combine very well with the coaches from Dutch Classics 2 and the much more detailed coaches from Dutch Classics 7. The Plan D and Bolkop class coaches were beautiful coaches with their - for that time / very modern rounded shape, with their recognizable shape they were real classics. They have been in service from the middle of the twentieth century and can still be seen in some Dutch railway museums. The coaches played an important role in domestic and international express trains.
An instruction manual informs you about the background and history of the coaches; also you find detailed instructions about installation and use of the coaches. An extensive catalogue that shows all types of rolling stock in this add on is also included.
