The train now approaching Platform 4 terminates here!
There's no way to view this in-game and it's unlikely to be added back in again. Information is definitely outdated and you shouldn't really take it to heart.
Previous Generation or Old Generation, more commonly referred as 'Paper Train' or 'Legacy Train', is a name given to trains that do not have an interior and a "paper" exterior (no windows, door interlock lights, functioning doors, etc). There are only a few "seats" inside them, but they were just blocks on the floors of the trains. Some of the trains are based on trains from the Haughton Foundry's Mind the Gap game.
From V1.3 onwards, SCR began to replace these trains with Next Generation trains which have detailed interiors and upgraded exteriors. They were all replaced by different Next Generation versions in V1.5.
- The Class 158 was the first train to be added as a NG train, shortly before the Class 508.
- The Class 185 on AirLink was the first train to be upgraded and the Classes 165, 166, 730 and 380 were the last trains to be upgraded.
- The sneak-peek of the Class 730 was the last sneak-peek of an NG upgrade.
- Stepford Express has never had any Previous Generation trains, since the operator was only added with SCR Version 1.4.
