About This Content

One of the most reliable and arguably most successful heavy freight haulers on the North American rail network, the EMD SD60M, comes to Train Simulator.

The SD60 series was intended to improve upon its predecessor, the SD50, and production was spurred by General Motors’ introduction of 3,600 horsepower diesel locomotives. GM’s Electro-Motive Division initially introduced the SD50, but weaknesses in its reliability and construction soon saw the SD60 introduced to service.

Intended for heavy duty and medium speed freight traffic, more than 1,100 SD60 models were built between 1984 and 1995. The SD60 proved to be more reliable and more fuel efficient than the SD50, and several variants were produced with different features, including the SD60F (built for Canadian Pacific), SD60I (alternative interior cab), SD60MAC (featuring alternating current traction motors) and the SD60E (a custom rebuild for Norfolk Southern).

The most successful variant of the Series was the SD60M, which featured the North American safety cab design and had a full-width short hood. Early models featured three-piece windshield (as featured in this Train Simulator model), although later production models used two windshield panes that were sloped back.

Testament to the reliability and sound construction of the SD60 Series, many units are being re-manufactured to extend their service life for a number of Class 1 railroads across North America.

The EMD SD60M for Train Simulator is available in Union Pacific livery and features cab and instrument lighting, opening windows and opening cab doors.

The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the Union Pacific SD60M 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

Four scenarios for the Sherman Hill route:
  • Simple Controls Training: SD60M Union Pacific

This is a okay train, I got this for free because I bought the TS2016 upgrade.

The sounds are reused from the other SD70\80 series trains.

The cab is very detailed and you get aminations of the shades, doors, and windows.

I will recommend this locomotive and I would have to say thanks to Dovetail for giving this locomotive for free.

My first free train loco... very nice. Unfortunately, it is an American train but good for people who live there. But thanks for the free stuff at least. Actually it was my 2nd free item of my games but my first free item was in Euro Truck Simulator 2 - Metallic Paint Jobs Pack. Thats all I can say in this review, however.

It is ok. The sounds are reused from the SD70M, and that sucks. The cab view is neat, and the opening windows and doors are a nice touch. All in all, i do reccomend this locomotve.

Well... Not bad. But not good. It's just same with sd70m. Nothing unique. You can just drive, open windows, doors and nothing. Sound is just same. It is just sd70m. Only different is just shape. I think $19.99 is expansive for this. I preffer UP sd-45 more than this.
Scenario is good. cab and throtle are very detail. All thing is good. Except sound.
