About This Content

One of the newest electric multiple units for the Northeast Corridor comes to Train Simulator in Metro-North’s familiar bare metal and red livery.

Built by Kawasaki at Lincoln, Nebraska for use on the New Haven Line, the M8 first entered service in March 2011 as a replacement to the current fleet of M2, M4 and M6 multiple units. Similar in body style to the M7, more than 300 units have been delivered to Metro-North so far, and feature multiple power pick-up – third rail and overhead pantograph – which can be changed by the engineer whilst on the move.

The two-car Kawasaki M8 has a top speed of 100mph (161km/h) and the model for Train Simulator features driving cabs and passenger views, switchable power modes and dynamic in-cab display screens showing instrument readouts and power pick-up mode.

The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the Metro-North Kawasaki M8 on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for the NEC: New York-New Haven route (available separately and required to play these scenarios).
