GWE's First Great Western: June 20th 2022 Update Fixes

After the huge Preservation update to the Great Western Express Route Add-On on June 20th 2022, the First Great Western Class 166 and HST, not meant to be accessible by the player but having made available thanks to a mod by trainsim.cz aka. Muff previously, were not updated to work with the changes made to the equivalent Great Western Railway stock and subsequently broke with that update.
This mod in collaboration between Alexander L. and Foobian aims to get the FGW stock back into the game better than before, bellow is a full list of changes made. Enjoy a Great Western Express full of life with DTG made Great Western Railway and First Great Western trains and your favourite legacy reskins building of the FGW stock!

Wonderful to see the FGW skins again, and properly fixed too, sublime work here. Thanks!

Unfortunate bug: it resets your Class 43 XP to -1 and they never increase from there

I am amazed that you both come up with a fix to this so quickly. And Muff too! I was hoping that something might be done in 3 months so 3 days exceeded all expectations. No chance you could get a job with DTG is there? lol

I'm wondering if the original FGW unlocker mod needs to be updated to TSW3 compatability. I seem to get CTD's with this mod every time I try and load a FGW skin, and then at least 50% of the time with his unlocker alone...

Unfortunately I can also confirm that the mod no longer works on tsw3 although I guess that it could be that the FGW unlocker might require updating again. I think that DTG will probably not be updating GWE again! I hope not!

This is marked as TSW3 compatible, but unfortunately it is not. Would be good if a moderator or admin could remove that flag until the author updates it as it crashes the game.

I can confirm that following the most recent update this mod now works on TSW3. Many thanks, its great to have this mod back.
