Trivia

  • These trains were less frequently driven after the Class 380s were put into service. When V1.1 was released, these trains were refurbished, giving them more life, but slowly died out again in favor of other trains. However, upon upgrade to Next Generation, they became much more frequent and remains to be.
  • This train, the Class 360, the Class 185, the Class 333, and the Class 332 are the only trains to have a destination sign with green lettering.
  • This is the fastest Connect train in the game at 110 MPH.
  • This train's max speed was secretly bumped to 110 MPH when it received the Next Generation upgrade. This train can only reach the max speed without breaking the speed limit on the line section between Leighton City and Edgemead (125 MPH) & some parts of the Llyn-by-the-Sea extension.
  • This train has the second highest maximum speed of all trains, tied with the Class 387 and Class 802 at 110 MPH.
    • This is also the cheapest train to have a maximum speed of 110 MPH.
    • These trains are the 350/3's.
  • There is a chance of 1% that one of the units can be numbered 350350.
  • As part of the livery refurbishment as of Version 1.6, this train has had its LGBTQ+ livery stripped.
  • The Class 350s used to be the only trains with the special Connect Trainbow livery, in support of the LGBTQ+ community. Many people appreciated this. A fair amount of members in the community do not prefer to outright refer to it with LGBT terms, instead calling it the Class 350, Rainbow Train or even "Trainbow". However, following the livery repainting for the rebranding of Connect in V1.6, the Class 331s now bear the Trainbow livery, and the 350s bear the normal Connect livery.
  • This is the first Next Generation Houghton Foundry model, which is identical to the one used in Iron Road.
  • In real life, this train operated by West Midlands Trains under the London Northwestern Railway trade name and they were formerly operated by Central Trains and Silverlink, both companies dissolved in 2007.
  • This train was also formerly operated by London Midland and TransPennine Express.
  • Like with the Electrostar units (excluding the class 357), the Class 350 has thick lines on the gangway flaps on the front of the train. This is inaccurate, making the Legacy Class 350 more accurate to it‘s real life counterpart.
