The Class 707 Desiro City is an electric multiple-unit manufactured by Siemens, in use on Stepford Connect. These trains are formed of 5 coaches and cost 225 points (300 normally).
This is the first train to receive a CSG (Constructive Solid Geometry) model livery in SCR. This improved the performance for many users, as well slightly improving the interior to make it look more accurate to the 707‘s real life counterpart.
- Prior to receiving a Next Generation upgrade, the in-game motor sounds did not match real life. They were corrected after the upgrade, first with the acceleration sound and then the braking sound.
- This train replaced the Class 700s in The Big Update.
- This train is one of the most common trains you can see in SCR and is often more in use than the Class 357 (free train) because many players use this train despite if they are starters or not.
- This train is the only train from the Desiro City family to currently operate on SCR, the Class 700 was withdrawn.
- This train is much cheaper than most other of the Stepford Connect trains, with the exception of the free Class 357.
- This train is more successful in SCR than it is in real life, even before being upgraded to Next Generation. In real life, its operator (South Western Railway) is already planning on replacing their 707s with Class 701s. The 707s will then be cascaded to Southeastern.
- In real life, these trains have the destination boards on the side of the windows. This problem has occurred with the Class 195, Class 331, Class 360 and Class 321.
- The Class 707 is one of the few Next Generation trains that actually has automatic pocketed doors.
- The Class 707 also has the cheapest points per carriage, with a low of 60 points per carriage (45 points after discount), as it has 5 carriages and 300 points, only beaten by the free Class 357.
- This is the only train with marble flooring.
- This train shares its horn sound with the Class 350 and Class 360/2 in SCR but not in real life.
- Many new players in the game target to buy this train as their first paid train as it the cheapest paid train.
- This is the first Next Generation train to receive optimization, including remodeled bogies and new interior.
- These trains are commonly referred to as the Thameslink trains due to their use in real life and the fact that these trains are similar to the Class 700.
- The class 707 is the only connect multiple unit in the whole fleet to have black sliding passenger doors closest to the cab ends. The rest of the connect fleet all have white doors near the cab ends since the major update in v1.6.
