Trivia

  • This is the only train to have moved operators in the history of SCR. It was released as a Connect train in December of 2017, and was then replaced by the Class 377. It was later brought back into service on WaterLine. It then moved to AirLink about a year and half later, due to their top speed being more useful on AirLink rather than on WaterLine as the maximum speed on WaterLine is 90 mph. During this final switch it was also upgraded with Next Generation train technology.
  • Prior to Version 1.0, when they operated on WaterLine, these trains could not go to Newry Harbour because the line had not been electrified.
  • It has the highest max speed out of all the trains in SCR, the same as the Class 802, and Class 350 At 110 MPH.
  • These trains, as WaterLine stock, were refurbished with a new door chime, a direction indicator, and a darker blue colour in V1.1, however, this was not shown in sneak peeks.
