Description
BR Class 323 - Northern Rail



The British Rail Class 323 electric multiple-unit passenger trains were built by Hunslet Transportation Projects. All 43 units were built from 1992 through to 1996, although mock-ups and prototypes were built and tested in 1990 and 1991.

Entering service in 1992, the 323s were among the last trains to enter service with British Rail before its privatisation in the mid-1990s. The units were specifically designed to operate on inner-suburban commuter lines in and around Birmingham and Manchester with swift acceleration and high reliability. Of the 43 sets built, 26 are in operation with West Midlands Trains and 17 with Northern. By 2021, the West Midlands Trains sets will be replaced by new rolling stock and most of the fleet will be operated by Northern.

The units are known for a distinctive whine made during acceleration or deceleration.

Stats

Available from 1992
Top speed: 90 MPH
Pantograph up and down versions available

NOTE: Sounds

Due to the limitations of the game's audio system, I cannot recreate the 323's famed whining sounds. This is as close as I got without it sounding horrible at other parts. I'll release a secondary mod to replace the sounds with more experimental ones shortly.

Hi Yung Lenin LOVE all your trains. Will you be porting them all over to TPF2?. I will sorely miss them if not they are fantastic!

Incredible work again, thank you so much

do you know roughly how long it will take till the experimental audio mod comes out?

i'm looking forward to seeing it, or well, hearing it on my maps.

Man you're a legend, how do you make so much goddamn good content. Any chance the Class 142 will get an update when TPF2 comes out?

Nice one. Look forward to them in TF2 too.

@mongolteiko thanks man! It's a real shame the audio can't be made more realistic but I'm working on improving it still. And yes - this will be bought over to TF2!

Absolutely brilliant job! As a train driver myself, I love the static units with red tail lamps at both ends. The electric motor noise just needs to be a bit louder [on acceleration/deceleration]. Still 10/10! Are you going to port this to TF2 too?
