Overview

General Motors? bestselling SD40-2 diesel locomotive comes to Train Simulator in Norfolk Southern black livery in its popular high nose, long hood variant.

Around 4,000 models of the Dash 2 series locomotive were built between 1972 until 1989 as an upgrade to the SD40. This new version included an updated 3,000 horsepower, turbocharged 16 cylinder diesel-electric engine, with some external updates including longer front and rear ?porches? and an additional roof-mounted radiator grill.

The reliability and versatility of the Class saw many variants produced and nearly all remain in service, seeing service across the US, plus Canada, Mexico, Brazil and Guinea. The locomotive is capable of a 65mph top speed when fitted with standard gearing.

The EMD SD40-2 High Nose Long Hood Forward for Train Simulator is available in Norfolk Southern livery and features include cab lighting, step lights and dynamic braking. A number of freight wagons are also included, such as Covered Hoppers, Double Door Box Cars and Low Gondolas, alongside an ES44AC diesel locomotive in Monongahela grey livery.

The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the Norfolk Southern SD40-2 High Nose Long Hood Forward on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for the Norfolk Southern Coal District route (available separately and required to play these scenarios).
