Buy Train Simulator: NKP S-2 Class 'Berkshire' Loco Add-On

 

About This Content

The fantastic S-2 Class ‘Berkshire’ is a wonderful US steam locomotive and now available for Train Simulator in two preserved representations of these stunning models.

The New York, Chicago and St Louis Railroad, popularly known as the Nickel Plate Road, is famous for its powerful and beautiful Berkshire locomotives, so called due to their 2-8-4 wheel arrangement. The railroad purchased 15 S-2s from Alco in 1934 alongside many other US railroads. Between 1942 and 1949, an additional 65 units were acquired from Lima Locomotive Works.

The S-2 Class ‘Berkshire’ for Train Simulator, developed by G-Trax Simuations, represents two preserved examples of the locomotive, No. 765 operated by the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society, and No. 759, a variation based on the locomotive on display at Steamtown in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

The locomotives are also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the S-2 Class ‘Berkshire’ on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam.

What a beautiful steam locomotive! If you're a fan of American Steam you might like this one. It's a little slow though. It took me a while to get the hang of it before I could get this engine up to speed with a consis behind it. I do wish there were passenger or frieght cars to go with it and that the whistle was the same one that 765 has, but it's still good.

I have no idea what that other review is about running out of steam, I have had no issues with it. The S-2 Berkshire is a big ole girl and is a little touchy when it comes to steam control but after just one practice run I had her all sorted out and running smoothly through the Canadian mounains down to the Miami coastline.

This steam locomotive is a classic MUST HAVE engine for any American rail fans. Once you get used to the steam control its easy to remember and drive. Shes mighty tall and handsome and known quite well by all, pulling the combination all across the states! I have to say that I love this engine and would highly recomend it to anyone who is even considering it. Worth the $20 purchase price.

The NKP S-2 Berkshire is underpowered and I can't get it to hold enough steam pressure to even go at more than about 20-30 mph without having to stop and let the pressure build again. And even though I have other rolling stock, TS won't let me couple up anything to it. So all I can do is just putt down the track for a short while then stop and rebuild steam pressure. It's a very frustrating locomotive. And possibly even worse since it is so distracting is that if you open the firebox to add coal while you are in the cab, the flames textures are apparently missing a frame so it flicker flames for a few frames then a red and white warning that it can find a texture, flickers flames for a couple of seconds and then the warning it can't find a texture. This locomotive looks great but is defective. It should not be on the market as DLC unless you want to pay just to look at it. I really can't recommend this one. Get the Challenger instead. It is nice looking and actually works.
