Locomotives

Locomotives are the core focus of the game and the backbone of your railway. Each is characterized by several statistics, including engine power, pulling mass, speed, mileage, longevity, and fuel consumption. Each of these statistics can be modified and upgraded with the right research and employees.

Picking which locomotives to buy is not a straightforward choice that newer is better. Although Best Friend and John Bull might look archaic, they are cheap and easy to maintain, but have limited power and longevity, forcing you to restock them repeatedly. On the other hand, newer models have far greater lifespans (the 4-6-0 Sierra has ten times the 0-4-0 Best Friend's lifespan) and can pull longer trains faster, but they also require a lot more fuel and upkeep.

Choosing right is key.
