About This Content

The AT&N Class 280-157 ‘Consolidation’ was a freight locomotive operating on a short railroad in the Deep South of the USA, and is now available for Train Simulator.

The Class 280-157 was built by Lima Locomotive Works for the Alabama, Tennessee and Northern Railroad (AT&N). ‘Consolidation’ was the name given to American steam locomotives with a 2-8-0 wheel arrangement, and five of the Class 280-157 were built in the 1920s, all for the AT&N. The AT&N was a short freight line that operated between Mobile and Reform, in Alabama, founded in 1897 as the Carrollton Short Line Railway and operating until 1971 when it was absorbed into its then parent company, the St Louis-San Francisco Railway.

The Class 280-157 ‘Consolidation’ for Train Simulator, developed by Smokebox, is available in Alabama, Tennessee and Northern Railroad livery and features detailed controls and gauges, opening cab doors, windows, ventilator hatch and storm window, detailed internal and external animations and expert driving mode for sophisticated locomotive controls.

The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the Class 280-157 on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for the Horseshoe Curve (available separately and required to play these scenarios).

Another excellent release from Smokebox, I can't recommend anything he creates enough. A very fun locomotive, especially on the Horseshoe curve. Great respect to the realism of the real thing, within the confines of TS. Not as high fidelity as his FEF-3, but easily one of the great steamers for TS.

This is one of the most awesome locomotives I ever saw for Train Sim. It worth every penny.
Everything works perfectly, the realism reach a really high level in this machine.
If you love steam engines, I recommend.

From the developer that brought us the outstanding Union Pacific FEF-3 844 and stablemates comes the prequell project - the AT&N Consolidation
A workhorse rather than a racehhorse, built strong and built to last. Perfect for switching, transfer and local pick up freights
and recently having under-gone an update to bring this original ground breaking model all of the newly created features of
Smokebox's later FEF-3 project, the Connie is now on a par; and a lot more fun to drive. A perfect stepping stone to hone
your skills before moving on to its bigger, brasher cousin.

Definately a MUST HAVE for any steam lover

The AT&N Consolidation is one of the finest models available. I can see in the quality and attention to detail, that it took countless hours to create, this work of art. I spent weeks learning how to hand fire this engine and maintain steam pressure going up hills in the horseshoe curve without stalling. As a novice steam engine operator back in the mid 1980's, I can see the realism of the controls of this fire breathing beast. Whoever purchases this locomotive will not be disappointed. The are different versions to satisfy even the novice engine driver. The only engine on the steam network that even comes close is the SPS&S northern, also authored by smokebox. In addition to the model, Smokebox is always ready to answer questions and very helpful learning the operation of the steam engine. As an old slogan goes "as real as it gets"
