Available now for Train Simulator Classic!
Hello everyone, once again we are very happy to be able to announce another american's steam machine pack for your Train Simulator Classic!
Our Christmas 2022 offer is a very special package of 4 exotic steam locomotives for the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. These are the so-called C-16 class B&O, a type of 0-4-0ST that was built in 1912 by Baldwin Locomotive Works to supply needs on Baltimore, Maryland's "Pratt Street Line" along the Inner Harbor, and to the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania waterfront. By the workers, they were nicknamed "Little Joe" and Dockside". In the early 1950s, unfortunately none of the four C-16s existed, the last to be scrapped was the #98.
In this bundle, you will have the 4 C-16 units in the first modification version of B&O, between the years 1930-1940 that became better known. All of them are properly identified individually with the real serial number, and have the same features between them.
Open caps of water tank sand domes
Many of these features can be checked in the manual that comes with the model. To access the Manual, just install the package in your Train Simulator automatically through "Utilities" located in the main folder of your Train Simulator Classic, or by extracting the .RWP file with a program like WinRar or 7Zip. The Manual will be located in the main Train Simulator Classic folder ex: Steam\steamapps\common\RailWorks\Manuals\EN\Machine Rail

All of our projects start with a very large base of information about the material we are going to work on. With the B&O C-16 it was not different, although its available technical information is very limited; we were able to dig deeper and find everything we needed to start and finish it. In the image above, you can see just a small part of the entire process.
Details, from those that are visible to those that are hidden:
Internal and external lighting:
On these machines we added a new light system, so you can be more aware in night operations! In addition to the lights inside the cab, the main headlights front and back, the auxiliary headlight below the smoke box; the B&O C-16 also features external lighting above the drive wheels.
Due to the simple fact that this machine is intended for maneuvering, its speed performance is very low, the B&O C-16s are limited to 30mph; but its traction capacity is very satisfactory, with it you will be able to pull or push a large amount of empty or loaded freight cars.
Finishing the last post of 2022, on behalf of the Machine Rail™ team, thank you very much! We had an excellent year and we believe positively that the next year will be even better, and much more productive!
We wish all our friends and customers a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year, may 2023 be a blessed year full of achievements for all of us!
The B&O C-16 Class Bundle is now available in our store with a special 35% off Christmas offer valid until the 26th of December.
