Norfolk Southern’s distinctive SD60E rebuilt locomotive, featuring the railroad’s unique “Crescent Cab,” is now available for Train Simulator.
Beginning in 2010, the Norfolk Southern began a program at its famed Juniata (Altoona), Pennsylvania shops to upgrade its fleet of standard SD60 diesel locomotives which dated to the mid-1980s. Along with numerous upgrades to control, braking, and safety systems, the rebuilding process was keynoted by application of a modernized “Crescent Cab” as designed by Norfolk Southern. Powered by a 16-cylinder 710G3B engine and equipped with EM2000 microprocessors, the 4,000-horsepower SD60E can be found across the Norfolk Southern system totting everything from intermodals to heavy coal trains.
Through 2017, more than 130 SD60E locomotives rolled out of Norfolk Southern’s Juniata shops, including not only locomotives from the original NS fleet, but additional units purchased second-hand (including ex-Union Pacific and ex-Chicago & North Western locomotives).
Created by The LocoShop, the Norfolk Southern SD60E brings a modern and powerful diesel to Train Simulator. The Train Simulator NS SD60E is dressed in the railroad’s famed “Thoroughbred” livery and is provided in both clean and snow-dressed liveries. And the locomotive features an authentic “Crescent Cab” with realistic control and operating features.
As a bonus, the SD60E Add-On also includes Norfolk Southern’s noted “Top Gon” rebuilt coal gondola, several thousand of which were rebuilt from older hoppers beginning in 1991 and which will be ideal for coal duty on many Train Simulator routes.
