Locomotive is for TS12 through Trainz: A New Era SP3 only

Session is for TS12 SP1 only.

The SP-2 Class 4-10-2 Steam Locomotive was originally built for the Southern Pacific and delivered in 1926. With a 225 PSI boiler pressure, 63.5" drivers, and three cylinders, these locomotives had 86,589 lbs. of tractive effort. They were also equipped with a Franklin C-2 booster engine on the trailing truck that boosted the tractive effort to a total of 96,530 at lower speeds. While they were originally built for Donner Pass, they proved to be too hard on the track and were transferred to other divisions. On other divisions, these locomotives were very successful. This model represents the SP-2 class later in its lifetime, with a pressed steel pilot and later type headlight. There are numerous features on this locomotive, and an incredible amount of detail. The engine spec for this locomotive was carefully developed and tested to provide a very realistic experience with the locomotive.

    Sure the price is high, but all of this detailing, its really realistic. The thing I loved the most is the operating backup light. I have NEVER seen that in Trainz. It’s truly worth the price.

    This has to be the best looking steam locomotive I own, a real beauty. The demo session is good too: it is always fun running Tehachapi Pass with this SP-2 4-10-2!

    This thing is a beast. A beautiful one at that. Great attention to detail on both the loco and the tender. A lot of of things you can play with – number boards, side and front windows, lights, well the feature list says it all. The smoke is scripted so that the color changes based on how well you manage the fire and steam. Impressive! The included session is a blast to play; well scripted with info messages in all the right places to guide you through. If you like steam, this is a worthwhile addition!

    Note that it is an oil burner, so do read the notes that come with the package to understand how the blower, water injectors (2 different types), and “coal shoveling” functions work on this machine. Also note that you will need to grab the freeware 40ft Boxcar Western Railroads Pack ( as well as the freeware on the Steam / Transition Era – Dependencies page (I grabbed them all).

    If you’re a steam locomotive fan like I am, this loco is a dream come true!. First thing worth mentioning is the fact it’s an uncommon locomotive, 4-10-2’s don’t really get much attention, so a 4-10-2 for trainz is a big plus. It’s also worth mentioning that you can adjust the outside temperature to see the effects of the steam. The sounds are great but the bell is a bit quiet.Overall I give this locomotive a 10/10.

    Best steam I own.

    This modal is absolutely gorgeous. The sounds, the features, everything is just great. This is definitely one of the most detailed steam locomotives I own.

  9. David (verified owner)

    I agree with everyone else and say this is one very special beautiful locomotive isn’t she and she runs like a steam locomotive should and she does it with pride with being an American steam locomotive if u like uncommon wheel arrangmented locomotives then u need this engine or if your a fan of any steam engine whether it be US locomotives or British ones of any kind then this steam engine just make u smile and want to use it for any thing u want to throw at it and the detail is just gorgeous as i have bought my copy yo play with.

    I also give it my seal of approval 10/10 for the engine and all of it’s features

    thank u Lilb.

  13. Railfan500 (verified owner)

    Very good steam locomotive,and all the goodies are on it for a SP steam fan,but the only disappointment I find that there is no custom cab on it. Other that that A must buy model for any SP steam fan! Cabs are no big deal,as long as they do what there supposed to do.

    this loco is amazing. the sp 6 chime suits it. i live in los angeles so SP 5021 is in a muesum near me so its great having a model that i see every so often.
