About This Content

The fans’ favourite EMD SD40-2 is now available for Train Simulator, bringing this classic model to the US locomotive stable in two striking liveries –BNSF Heritage and Burlington Northern.

More than 4,000 SD40-2 models were built by General Motors’ Electro-Motive Division between 1972 and 1989 as part of the company’s Dash 2 series and an upgrade from the original SD40. The new version included an updated 3,000 horsepower, turbocharged 16 cylinder diesel-electric engine, with some external updates including longer front and rear ‘porches’ and an additional roof-mounted radiator grill.

The model was capable of a 65mph top speed with standard fitted gearing and several variations appeared during its 17 year build history, including the SD40T-2 with tunnel motor, SD20-2W with a four window safety cab, a high nose version and even a narrow gauge version, the BB40-2. General Motors also used the SD40-2 chassis to build the Class 59 in the UK, which was fitted with a unique body design specifically for European railway markets.

The EMD SD40-2 for Train Simulator is available in BNSF pre and post-2005 heritage liveries, and Burlington Northern pre and post-merger liveries. Features of the model include cab lighting, step lights and dynamic braking.

The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the EMD SD40-2 on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for the Marias Pass route (available separately and required to play these scenarios).

To start, the horn and engine sound is pretty bad. It comes with four livery's BN White Face, BN Green, BNSF post 2005 livery and the new BNSF livery. Its pretty powerful, at 3000 HP. This one time I had three SD40-2s and 60 cars, and I could barely get it over 25 mph over a 1.00% grade... Over all its a great add-on I think its a 8/10.

Great add-on to go with the Marias Pass route. Incldues 4 liveries, BNSF swoosh, BNSF heritage, BN Whiteface and regualr BN livery. Plenty of great rollingstock is included as well as some scenarios. The sounds are the same default Kuju SD40-2 sounds(BTW DTG did get the SD40-2 engine sounds nearly accurate). I recommend this add-on because it is fun!
