About This Content

The Southern Pacific Cab Forward is a classic oil-burner from the glory days of US Steam, and now you can drive this distinctive heavyweight over the Donner Pass in Train Simulator.

The Donner Pass route became ever more important as California’s economy grew, and the Southern Pacific Railroad soon found that more power was needed to haul increasingly heavy trains through the Sierra Nevada. 2-8-8-2 Mallet locomotives answered the call, but the route’s many long tunnels and snow sheds caused new problems: locomotive cabs were filling with fumes from the smokestack while inside the tunnels, so the solution was to build a locomotive with the cab at the front – the ‘Cab Forward’. It may sound simple, but the design required a number of complex technical solutions: the oil-fired firebox was mounted at the leading end of the boiler, so it was supplied with oil via low-pressure pipework running all the way from the rear tender.

The Cab Forward for Train Simulator represents the (Articulated Consolidation) AC-10, AC-11 and AC-12 types. It includes both clean and weathered variants, accurate in-cab controls with realistic sounds, and five scenarios for the Donner Pass .

Scenarios

5 scenarios for the Donner Pass:
  • The Cab Forward.
