Auto Credit Based on BoganBoganTheMan's ALCO S4 Base

Who needs high part count when you can have high variety? yeah all of them are under 300 parts

credit to BoganBoganTheMan for hood corners, and destroyerP for attempting it

.

Different Paints:
Grand Trunk 1
Grand Trunk 2
Union Pacific
Milwaukee Road
Baltimore and Ohio
Maine Central [train downloaded]
Reskinners template
Reskinners template is a blank version for people who want to make their own version.

Other trains can be found here.

.

The S series of ALCo engines started with the S1. Then followed the S2, S3, and S4. The difference between the S2/4 and S1/3 is the trucks. The S4 has 1,000 turbocharged horses under the hood, and has AAR trucks. They were competition to the rest of the switchers in America, and ALCo sold the most units.

.

Controls
Trim is throttle
Brake does stuff
1 and 2 are lights
3 is bell
4 honks the air horn
7 activates magnets

.

Enjoy!
