GE Steeple Cab + Steelmill Gondola w/ Crane & GATX Tanker Car

96.7k RailfanEthan  2.0 years ago

That's a big name. Use on Railway Mod by TrainDude.

Creds: TrainDude for trucks, alexchub1 for RPM gauge, and Avro683Lancaster for the wonderful background

The GE Steeple Cab is perhaps one of the most unique trains ever built. The uncommon cupola design gave it the advantage of visbility in a 360 degree view. Several class 3 railroads (lower and local companies) used them, ranging from shunting duties to industrial routes. Attached to this locomotive is a steelmill gondola with coils and a crane, which has a box of secret military grade battle monkeys. Behind that is a GATX fuel car, which probably wouldn't pass FRA inspection.

Controls:
1 and 2 activates headlights
3 enables interior hanging lamp
4 + VTOL moves sander (aesthetic)
Trim is throttle
Landing Gear raises pantographs

Changelog of additions/improvements since previous GE Steeple Cab (deleted):

-added plates/panels

    @tsampoy all you have to do is set the rotators to turn at 15 degrees on roll/yaw and have the couplers powered

    @RailfanEthan Could you make each train have a “non railway mod” version please?
