B&O Kingwood Branch: Tunnelton - Kingwood

18/05/2017

http://store.steampowered.com/app/448198/Train_Simulator_BO_Kingwood_Branch_Tunnelton__Kingwood_Route_AddOn/

Coal country railroading! The Baltimore & Ohio Kingwood Branch for Train Simulator brings to life classic early 1960s Appalachian railroading.

From the talented team that created the acclaimed Virtual New Haven Springfield Line, the B&O Kingwood Branch route delivers the extraordinary challenges of operating heavy diesel-powered coal trains over steep grades, tight curves, and rugged switchbacks.

Set in the northeast corner of West Virginia, this route is based upon the authentic West Virginia Northern Railroad, but is semi-fictional in that it is re-created as a Baltimore & Ohio branch line operation. The route includes a 10-mile roller coaster line between Kingwood and an interchange with the Baltimore & Ohio main line at Tunnelton and a 7-mile run to a large coal seam at Birds Creek. And along the way, numerous additional rugged spurs fan out up the wooded mountain valleys to wherever coal is produced.

The B&O Kingwood Branch route serves 14 mines including a mix of traditional underground and surface pit mines, as well as truck transfer sites for offline customers. Loads move from the mine tipples to the interchange yard at Tunnelton on the Mountain Sub main line of the B&O. Empties arrive at Tunnelton and are stored along the line and at Kingwood for delivery to customers. The route also includes a variety of non-mining lineside customers and features captivating branch-line passenger services

The Baltimore & Ohio Kingwood Branch route features a superb selection of locomotives, freight, and passenger equipment authentic to the 1960s-operating period. The locomotive is the versatile Electro-Motive GP9 in both B&O’s original livery and 1960s-era “Capitol” scheme. A traditional heavyweight 65-foot coach in B&O livery provides passenger service, and the route provides an extraordinary variety of freight equipment, including B&O class I-5, I-5D, and I-12 cabooses; 36-, 40-, and 50-foot boxcars in multiple liveries (including B&O, Chesapeake & Ohio, and Western Maryland); a B&O flatcar; B&O 52- and 65-foot gondolas; 55-ton and 70-ton coal hoppers in multiple variations and liveries; a tank car, B&O Airslide covered hopper; and wood- and steel refrigerator cars!

The Baltimore & Ohio Kingwood Branch will put you right to work with 13 highly authentic and challenging career scenarios that include freight, switching, and passenger duties as well as training runs on this rugged line. And the route includes a highly detailed and informative manual providing operating information, operating rules, maps, and timetables.

Classic and challenging Appalachian coal railroading awaits you on the Baltimore & Ohio Kingwood Branch route for Train Simulator!

CPRR 4-4-0 No. 60 ‘Jupiter’ Available Now

10/05/2017

http://store.steampowered.com/app/562379/Train_Simulator_CPRR_440_No_60_Jupiter_Steam_Loco_AddOn/

It was on May 10, 1869 at Promontory, Utah that the “Golden Spike” ceremony made America one land, linked by rail from ocean to ocean. Facing each other on that historic day were two locomotives, Union Pacific 4-4-0 No. 119 and Central Pacific No. 60, the “Jupiter.”

Now, through the extraordinary craftsmanship of Smokebox, Central Pacific’s 4-4-0 Jupiter comes to life in Train Simulator!

Central Pacific No. 60, along with three sisters (“Storm,” “Whirlwind,” and “Leviathan”) were built by the Schenectady Locomotive Works in the summer of 1868. The wood-burning locomotives were designed for dual service, with 60-inch-diameter drivers and 16 x 24-inch cylinders and a total engine weight of 65,400 pounds. Following the historic events of May 1869, the Jupiter went on to a long career working for the Central Pacific and its successor, the Southern Pacific.

In the mid-1970s, the U. S. National Park Service had full-sized, operating replicas of UP No. 119 and the Jupiter constructed, a process that included the creation of engineering drawings of the locomotives. It is from those plans that Smokebox has created the Train Simulator version of the famed Jupiter. And as can be expected from the creator of the Union Pacific FEF-3 4-8-4 and AT&N 2-8-0, the Jupiter features extraordinary operating realism and exacting detail authenticity true to the wood-burning locomotives as built in 1868.

The Central Pacific Jupiter pack includes the historic Jupiter as well as sister locomotives Storm, Whirlwind, and Leviathan; authentic flat cars, baggage car, various styles of Emigrant coaches, and a coach-caboose with detailed passenger views; and a variety of new track and scenery assets designed to allow route builders to create their own 19th century railroad routes!
