About This Content

The F40PH California Zephyr brings together one of the most famous names and one of the most recognisable shapes in US railroading for Train Simulator!

Built by the General Motors Electro-Motive Division from 1975 into the early 1990s, the F40PH was built specifically for Amtrak to haul short passenger services. However, it soon proved its versatility and before long the F40PH was hauling long-distance passenger trains such as the famous California Zephyr. Other operators also ordered a number of these locos, including Via Rail Canada, GO Transit and NJ Transit. With a 3,000 horsepower diesel engine, the F40PH had a top speed of just over 100mph and though most of Amtrak’s units have been retired, they have continued in service with other owners across North America including CSX, Metra and MBTA. The California Zephyr has been a legendary name for railroad fans since it first ran in 1949. Running from Chicago, Illinois to Emeryville, California and passing through 7 states, the current Amtrak California Zephyr first ran in 1983 and still rolls along its scenic 2,400-mile route every day.

The F40PH for Train Simulator recreates the Amtrak Phase III colour scheme and includes Amtrak Super-Liner Phase II and Phase III passenger cars including coach, diner and sleeper, and baggage cars. Drive the included scenarios for the Donner Pass (also available on Steam) or select Quick Drive and drive the F40PH wherever you want.

Includes


F40PH diesel locomotive in Amtrak Phase III livery, with detailed controls and cab including instrument lighting

Amtrak passenger cars: Phase II and Phase III versions of the Baggage car, Coach, Lounge Café Car, Sightseer Lounge car, Sleeper car and Transition Sleeper car.

Love it! But, just like everything else this game has to provide, it is WAY overpriced! When I bought this DLC, I spent 40 bucks! And I'm not even able to use it untill I get Donner Pass which is another 40 which adds up to about 60-80 bucks in the end! That's like purchasing 3-4 brand new games! I really enjoy it including the cab forward, but are they really worth that much money? If you think so, get Donner Pass first. It comes with several engines and scenarios so that you can actually enjoy it. I made the mistake of getting this before, and I wasn't able to even use it yet. Only get these if you are actually going to use them. Otherwise, save your money and get somthing worth spending it on.
