About This Content

The ever popular EMD SD40-2 is now available for Train Simulator in a unique red, white and blue livery as operated by Union Pacific.

More than 4,000 models were built by General Motors’ Electro-Motive Division EMD) between 1972 and 1989, as part of the company’s Dash 2 series. The SD40-2 was an upgrade from the SD40, and a number of variants made their way onto American rails, including the SD40T-2, SD40-2W, SD40-2F, SD40-2S, SD40-3 and SD40M-2.

Union Pacific was EMD’s largest customer, taking more than 680 units, and this one-off livery, depicting the Stars and Stripes of the US flag, was applied in 1994 as a fundraiser for the US-based charity United Way. The locomotive operated as part of UP’s regular roster for many years as well as attending railroad events and photo calls across the US.

The EMD SD40-2 for Train Simulator is available in unique Union Pacific red, white and blue livery and features dynamic braking, working step lights, cab lighting and Union Pacific freight cars.

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 Sherman Hill route (available separately and required to play these scenarios).

Scenarios

More scenarios are available on Steam Workshop online and in-game. Train Simulator’s Steam Workshop scenarios are free and easy to download, adding many more hours of exciting gameplay. With scenarios being added daily, why don’t you check it out now!

Personally, I think the paint scheme on this engine is pretty nasty, but that does not take away from the engine itself...

Pros:
Paintscheme, however ugly, does look well done
Well put together scenarios
Engine sounds are pretty decent, and the cabview is nice, different from the normal SD40.

Cons:
The horn and bell sounds are, you guessed it!, the default KUJU SD40 sounds!
I can't really think of anything else bad about this engine.

Yes, I would definitly recommend this engine to anybody!

This is a highly detailed locomotive! Looks fantastic! It is based on a real Union Pacific SD40-2. The DLC includes UP 3300, freight cars and several scenarios for Sherman Hill route. I love this add-on and you should get it!
