About This Content

In 2012, Norfolk Southern celebrated its 30th anniversary and honoured some of the railroads in its history by repainting 20 locomotives in ‘fallen flag’ liveries.


Since the 1820s, hundreds of railroad companies were built, merged, reorganised and consolidated into what eventually became Norfolk Southern in 1982. Each livery was modified to fit the GE ES44AC and EMD SD70ACe, while staying as true as possible to the original designs. The heritage liveried locomotives were unveiled in July 2012 and are rostered in NS’ daily freight timetables.


The General Electric ES44AC featured in this Heritage Pack was the first AC locomotive class purchased by NS and are regularly used to haul long coal trains. The locomotive is part of GE’s Evolution Series, which means it produces fewer emissions than its competitors but still maintains a mammoth 4,400 horsepower and 75mph top speed.

The ‘fallen flag’ liveries featured in this Heritage Pack are:


  • Conrail
  • Central of Georgia Railway
  • Interstate Railroad
  • Lehigh Valley Railroad
  • Monongahela Railway
  • Nickel Plate Road
  • Norfolk and Western Railway
  • Norfolk Southern Railway
  • Pennsylvania Railroad
  • Southern Railway
Also included are Hopper Ballast Wagons, Van Autoparts Boxcars and Hopper Low Sided Gondolas, along with four Quick Drive consists for each locomotive and a selection of double header consists.


Each locomotive in this Pack is Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the ES44AC on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam. Please note, there are no scenarios included with this Pack.

They're nice locos, but the horn is not as realistic and there's no bell sound. Either Steam or DTG needs to fix this, because now I've screwed up the horn trying to swap it out with another horn as well as trying to add a bell.

Bell doesnt work and no scenarios, but other than that no complaints. These are very fun for making your own trains, driving in QD, or finding scenarios in the workshop.

These are some really nice looking locos created for Train Simulator. My two favorite liveries in this pack or Conrail and Central of Georgia. Basically what this DLC is are the NS Heritage ES44ACs repainted into fallen RR liveries to represent Norfolk Southern's heritage(DTG also did the NS Heritage SD70ACes in a separate pack along with the UP Heritage SD70ACes). Not only does this DLC include 10 highly detailed engines, but three freight wagons, a ballast hopper, autoparts boxcar and low side gondola. Sounds-Engines sounds are nice but the horns are not realisitc at all. Even though the horns are not the best but it is a nice sounding horn. This is a recocmended DLC!

Horrible horn, but epic addon!
Also a quick con:
In the back of the cab you can see a Union Pacific decal, meaning the livery was just put on a UP ES44AC.
