## About This Content
The Amtrak® Dash 8-32BWH diesel locomotive, constructed by General Electric in
1991, is one of the most unique and, among North American railroad
enthusiasts, one of the more popular diesel types to emerge in the 1990s, and
is now available for Train Simulator.
With a design based on GE’s Dash 8-32B freight locomotive, 20 of these
distinctive diesels were built for Amtrak at GE’s Erie, Pennsylvania
manufacturing facility and have gone on to achieve long and successful careers
working across Amtrak’s national rail system.
Rated at 3,200 horsepower, the Dash 8-32BWH is powered by a 12-cylinder
version of GE’s 7FDL prime mover and rides GE FB-2 two-axle trucks. In
appearance, the Dash 8-32BWH is unlike anything else on the Amtrak roster,
featuring a North American wide cab set in front of a traditional road-
switcher body. When built, the locomotives were dressed in a flashy red,
white, blue and grey Amtrak livery.
At first, Dash 8-32BWHs were assigned to short-haul trains, such as the Los
Angeles-San Diego San Diegans, as well as premier long-distance trains
including the California Zephyr. Since the arrival of Amtrak’s Genesis
diesels, the Dash 8-32BWH, now dressed in Amtrak’s current blue and silver
livery, has primarily been assigned to short-haul trains and often serve as
terminal switchers at locations such as Miami and Chicago.
The Dash 8-32BWH for Train Simulator is available in both its original Amtrak
livery and present-day scheme, and also includes a set of Amtrak Superliner
passenger equipment. The locomotive is ideal for passenger duty on US routes
from coast to coast!
The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive
the Amtrak Dash 8-32BWH on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator,
such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios
specifically for the Miami – West Palm Beach route (available separately and
required to play these scenarios).
