The BR Class 101 was the main Diesel Multiple Unit used for operating local commuter services on the British Rail network from the 1950s until the 1990s. 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. The Class 101 operated in 2 or 3 car sets, often these sets were coupled together to form longer trains.

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.
