About This Content

The SD40-2W Wide Nose is a great add-on for Train Simulator players looking to expand their diesel fleet north of the border!


The EMD SD40-2W is a Canadian-market version of the SD40-2 diesel-electric locomotive, built for the Canadian National Railway by the Diesel Division of General Motors of Canada Ltd. (formerly General Motors Diesel) of London, Ontario. A total of 123 were constructed between May 1975 and December 1980. The major difference between the SD40-2W and a regular SD40-2 is the fitment of a wide-nose Canadian ‘comfort cab’, denoted by the 'W' in the model name.


The Canadian comfort cab or wide cab is a broad-nosed cab design found on several diesel locomotive types. It occupies the entire width of the locomotive, and typically has an access door on the front. Otherwise, the locomotive is similar to other types of SD40-2. The Wide Nose for Train Simulator allows you to run authentic-looking Canadian freight trains and comes complete with freight cars.

  • SD40-2W Wide Nose in Canadian National livery

Okay, where to start?
Firstly, it is in CN paint, which is cool, but would like to have seen earlier CN "Zebra" paintscheme as well.
A nicely modeled engine, in my opinion:
Pros:
An excellent cabview, a nice change from the regular SD40.
All features of the real thing seem to be there, accurate horn placement, class lights, and winterization hatch over air intake.
The paintjob is very well done...
Cons:
The horn and bell sounds are, well, default SD40 sounds, so....
The actual engine sounds like the GP40 from the Portland Terminal, so not very realistic there.
The brakes kind of suck.
When you turn the wipers on, and view them outside, they go really fast, and look kind of stupid.
The bell does not physically move when it is ringing, so...

All and all, I would recommend this engine, but only if it is on sale, because I think it needs a little work...
(surprise)
