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.

All of the Gtrax locomotives are underpowered; they cannot and will not cruise at track speed with tonnage. They cannot keep up steam the way real "superpower" locomotives do. However, there are physics upgrades for the Gtrax engines at Railworks America.com. These mods will improve the handling of the engines.

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.
