GP38-2 Locomotives

HP-Trainz introduces a new generation of locomotives for Trainz. We have incorporated the experiences of 12 years content creation for Trainz into the development. Besides the excellent appearance of the models we have focused our attention to an enhanced functionality of the locomotives. Choosing the functions we wanted to incorporate into our loco scripts, we focused rather on those that reflect the experience of an engineer  and making the sessions driving more interesting, then on neat eye candies.

Watch the functions of the locomotives in the following video:
