Trivia

  • In V1.1, this train, alongside the Class 166, was given a major refurbishment, based off of the Houghton Foundry model. The model was also improved.
  • Following the introduction of the Class 730, these trains, along with the Class 166, became a rare sight on Waterline, as the Class 730's are faster, cheaper, and electric instead of diesel.
    • There is no big matter between Class 730 and Class 165 at speed, because the max speed limit of all Waterline tracks is 90 mph, not 100, but this could change in the future.
  • This and the Class 166 were the last diesel trains and the last trains without an end gangway to receive a Next Generation upgrade.
