About the GameAs America’s railroads rapidly expanded in the mid-19th century, culminating with the opening of the great transcontinental railroad in May 1869, the nation’s steam locomotive workhorse was the 4-4-0. Indeed, the 4-4-0 “eight-wheeler” became so synonymous with U. S. railroading that it quickly came to be known as the “American” type.
Renowned Train Simulator creator Smokebox has brought 1860s railroading and the famed transcontinental railroad to captivating life with its Promontory Summit route and selection of historic Union Pacific and Central Pacific steam locomotives – and now, Smokebox brings to Train Simulator two more classic 4-4-0 “Americans” – Union Pacific sister locomotives No. 7, the “Omaha,” and No. 8, the “Idaho.”
Constructed by the Schenectady (N.Y.) Locomotive Works (a predecessor of the American Locomotive Works, or Alco), Union Pacific’s “Omaha” and “Idaho” were outshopped in March and April 1866 respectively and went to work on the then-under-construction transcontinental railroad. In design, Union Pacific Nos. 7 and 8 were similar to Central Pacific No. 60, the famed “Jupiter” of Golden Spike fame, which was also built at Schenectady.
Like all Smokebox locomotives, Union Pacific’s “Omaha” and “Idaho” feature extraordinary fidelity to detail and ultra-realistic interactive operating features and characteristics. Ideally suited for work on Smokebox’s Promontory Summit route (available separately), the classic 4-4-0s are accompanied in this DLC by Union Pacific emigrant coach with clerestory roof; UP combined caboose and coach; and UP baggage car, as well as three career scenarios for the Train Simulator Promontory Summit route.
A trio of Career scenarios are included for Promontory Summit Route Add-On
- [Omaha] Last Train to Dead Man’s Gulch
- [Omaha] The Last Leg
- [Omaha] Winter Morning Run to Promontory
Please Note: Promontory Summit Route Add-On is required, as a separate purchase, in order to play the scenarios featured in this add-on.
