Between 1948 and
1954, Baldwin Locomotive Works (and later Baldwin-Lima-Hamilton)
produced the DRS-6-6-1500 and AS616 six-axle road switcher. The
initial DRS-6-6-1500 produced 1,500 horsepower while the
follow-up AS616 added 100 more horsepower. These heavy brutes
were known by railroaders for their great tractive effort at low
speed, but their relatively low production numbers prevented
them from becoming as famous as EMD's competing SD-series.
Locomotive Works is proud to present the AS616/DRS-6-6-1500 model for MSTS.
Each available locomotive features:
models with historically-accurate details and textures
dynamic braking effects
AI lighting (allows headlights to work when the locomotive is
under computer control)
physics and train handling based upon historical data from the
individual railroads represented
improved texture rendering and compression methods and
space-saving file aliasing for sound/cabview
Self-installing archive for easy installation; no need to copy
