    Diesel locomotive
    Don't try to stop this with your Covet or Pigeon, it is very likely that it won't work
    I think now it is the time to create a thread for this. This is a (very work in progress) working six axle diesel locomotive. Its 169.6L V16 diesel engine produces around 3000 hp and enough torque. It will never fit in your Honda. It weighs 131 tons but I need to add more weight to it (realistic weight should be somewhere near 167 tons). The engine alone weighs 16 tons. The max speed is 105 km/h because it is a freight locomotive.


    The result of crashing it into an another locomotive at 95 km/h. Only the frame hits the other locomotive, bending it a little bit, totally destroying the snow plow, the coupler and the handrails. The very strong frame makes it really safe (not really, it doesn't have seatbelts. You would fly through that small window).



    This is my first ever decent BeamNG vehicle so don't expect a really good jbeam. I tried to go not too complicated with it, but it got kinda complicated with the long hood doors. You can see the jbeam in the picture below.


    Progress:
    Green = Done
    Orange = WIP
    Red = Not started
    Purple = Stupid ideas

    Cab interior
    Glass

    Jbeam
    Engine room
    Powertrain

    Different exhausts
    Different horns, beacon lights and headlights
    Pretty much everything else

    Racing parts (spoilers, wings, rockets, front splitters)
    Ram plow
    Heavy duty semi wheels instead of trucks/bogies and steering to make it drivable on normal roads
    A trumpet horn

    Name suggestions are welcome

    Amazing! We've needed this in beam for a while now.
    --- Post updated ---
    Oh, and I think it should be a Wentward.

    Fact: Union Pacific takes over all the rails in the US, in till they started to rebel. Just to point.

    Holy shit, PLEASE finish this. I love me driving some locomotives, and now I would be able to do it in BeamNG... Even if it's pointless :D

    Wishing that someone could make a steam train, not types of diesels. (but really I like your train)
    This would happen if people forget steam trains on this forum.

    So did you make the model from scratch? If not credit the author please :)
    (if YOU made it how about also a rebranding one?)

    I would honestly be happy with the mod as it is now, even if it is unfinished just so I could haul it around on the back of a flatbed

    Who wouldn't want to use trains in the game? I would use them to murder cars (because I'm into destruction within games).

    I Can't Agree Enough.

    Here's to hoping this mod makes it.


    Well, if Hirochi can have a piano, I don't see why Wentward can't have a train.

    Wentward seems more of a bus coach-builder.

    It could be a Randolph though.

    You can try to find it but you won't find it. The real life counterpart of this is a SD40-2 so you can try searching "sd40-2 3d model". Obviosly there are other models but you won't find this, because it IS mine.
