The British Rail Class 101 diesel multiple unit was built by Metro-Cammell at Washwood Heath in Birmingham, England from 1956 to 1959, following construction of a series of prototype units. These classes proved to be some of the most successful and longest-lived of BR's First Generation DMUs, second in longevity only to the Class 121, with the final five units being withdrawn on 24 December 2003. In 2000, the Class 101s were withdrawn from ScotRail. The oldest set was, by then, just over 47 years old.
The Class 101 is featured in the Northern Trans-Pennine route, which is set in 1983, when they were used for local commuter services on the trans-Pennine route from Manchester Victoria to Leeds. It is also featured in the Tees Valley Line route, where it also operates local commuter services. The Northern Trans-Pennine variant has 2 carriages whereas the Tees Valley Line version has both 2 and 3 carriage variants.
The Class 101 is the first train introduced into Train Sim World with a geared throttle; to change up a gear, the driver is required to cut the throttle, engage the next gear, then throttle up again.
The BR Class 101 runs a 24 hr timetable on both Northern Trans-Pennine and Tees Valley Line. Links can be found below to the appropriate timetables:
