Class 158 Beta Tester Message

If you joined a server with a Class 158, you would get this message. (This no longer works as the train has finalised it's, tests.)

The Class 158 is the first train to have interiors and functioning doors. It serves all of the Stepford Connect services except Stepford Victoria to Edgemead route. It also features a brand new livery that is exclusive to the fleet.

The fleet has two variants, Class 158/0 with 3 coaches and Class 158/9 with 2 coaches.


  • This is the first Connect train with a 2 coach variant.
  • This is the first train to have interiors and moving doors.
  • From May 9th to May 10th, this train could be seen on random routes being operated by beta testers.
  • In real life, these trains are operated by Abellio ScotRail, Transport for Wales, East Midlands Trains, Great Western Railway, Northern, and South Western Railway
  • These are the only Diesel trains to have end gangways.


The role-out of the Class 158 states that SCR is moving to the NEXT GENERATION. Get ready!
