The Class 221 currently operate on The Main Line , Mill Bridge Branch and Victoria Coast Line . Most Class 221 operate services on The Main Line .

  • The tilting mechanism is able to tilt the train up to 6 degrees in either directions. However, the 24 sets from Cross Country have this feature disabled, citing improved reliability and reduced maintenance costs. This is reflected in the game.
  • Although the Class 220 and Class 221 are near identical, the bogie and roof designs on both trains are different.
  • There is no Coach E on the Class 221. Coach E was reserved if there was sufficient demand to increase capacity on the Class 220 and Class 221s. However, this never happened. This was also for the cab end coaches to be consistent across both classes, that being Coach A and Coach F. This may change for some operators.
  • This is the only train in the game that can tilt.
  • This is one of the fastest trains in the game, with a max speed of 125 mph.

N Gauge Class 221

Jan 19, 2023

The British Rail Class 221 Super Voyager is a class of tilting diesel-electric multiple unit express passenger trains built in Bruges, Belgium, by Bombardier Transportation in 2001/02. 

The Class 221 are similar to the Class 220 Voyager units, but were built with a tilting mechanism enabling up to six degrees of tilt to allow higher speeds on curved tracks, most have five coaches, and they have a different bogie design. They have a maximum speed of 125 mph (200 km/h). 

Currently these trains are divided between two operators, Avanti West Coast (20 sets) and Cross Country (24 sets). The sets operated by Cross Country had their tilt function disabled in 2008 to improve reliability and reduce maintenance cost.

Coordinates of elektrostal in degrees and decimal minutes, utm coordinates of elektrostal, geographic coordinate systems.

WGS 84 coordinate reference system is the latest revision of the World Geodetic System, which is used in mapping and navigation, including GPS satellite navigation system (the Global Positioning System).

Geographic coordinates (latitude and longitude) define a position on the Earth’s surface. Coordinates are angular units. The canonical form of latitude and longitude representation uses degrees (°), minutes (′), and seconds (″). GPS systems widely use coordinates in degrees and decimal minutes, or in decimal degrees.

Latitude varies from −90° to 90°. The latitude of the Equator is 0°; the latitude of the South Pole is −90°; the latitude of the North Pole is 90°. Positive latitude values correspond to the geographic locations north of the Equator (abbrev. N). Negative latitude values correspond to the geographic locations south of the Equator (abbrev. S).

Longitude is counted from the prime meridian ( IERS Reference Meridian for WGS 84) and varies from −180° to 180°. Positive longitude values correspond to the geographic locations east of the prime meridian (abbrev. E). Negative longitude values correspond to the geographic locations west of the prime meridian (abbrev. W).

UTM or Universal Transverse Mercator coordinate system divides the Earth’s surface into 60 longitudinal zones. The coordinates of a location within each zone are defined as a planar coordinate pair related to the intersection of the equator and the zone’s central meridian, and measured in meters.

Elevation above sea level is a measure of a geographic location’s height. We are using the global digital elevation model GTOPO30 .
