Virtual Rail Creations has released a new add-on for Train Simulator 2015, the CSX Mother and Road Slug Add-on for the EMD GP40-2.
Road slugs are more than just rolling stock with control stands, they provide extra traction at low speeds, which is useful for slow, heavy haul duty and for car switching. Currently, CSX is rebuilding old GP30’s, 35’s, 38’s, and even GP40’s into slugs. After having their doors and prime movers removed, the shells are fitted with welded sheet metal, and usually concrete or other heavy materials are used to provide weight. The control cabs are retained and the controls themselves are upgraded by third-party locomotive re-manufacturers. Special receptacles are then built into the Slug and the Mother unit, connected by electrical cables to enable power transfer between the two units.
The VRC CSX Road Slug Pack brings these unusual pieces of rolling stock to Train Simulator 2015. Items included in the Package:
– CSX GP40-2 Mother unit.
– CSX Road Slug (former GP30).
– Quick drive scenario, utilizing the freight cars from the CSX Primary Pack.
– The scenario “Interchange – Slugged”, which was originally featured in the Primary Pack.
This add-on pack is available in VRC's eStore.
