## About This Content
World War II had come to an end, and in America the race to dieselize the
railroads was on. History tells us Electro-Motive came to dominate the post-
war diesel market, but the historic American Locomotive Works (Alco) put on a
competitive and memorable showing.
Among Alco’s most admired diesel locomotives was the freight-service
streamlined “FA” series, of which more than 1,200 were constructed – and which
is now available for Train Simulator!
The Alco FA cab and accompanying booster FB were designed to compete head-to-
head with EMD’s extraordinarily successful “F” series. Powered by Alco’s
244-series 12-cylinder powerplant and equipped with electrical equipment from
Alco partner General Electric, the FA introduced a “flat-faced” but
nonetheless exceptionally attractive carbody style.
The first FA1s, rated at 1,500-horsepower, rolled off Alco’s Schenectady (New
York) production line in January 1946. The FA1/FB1 would remain in production
through 1950 and account for 694 sales to 24 railroads. In late 1950, Alco
debuted the FA2/FB2, which featured a power increase to 1,600-horsepower. The
FA2/FB2 remained in production through 1956 and accounted for an additional
528 units sold to 18 railroads.
The Pennsylvania Railroad, which had purchased 16 FA1/FB1s between 1946 and
1950, acquired 36 FA2/FB2s in 1951, and the diesels could be most often found
working the eastern end of the sprawling PRR system. Pennsy’s FA1/FB1s
remained on the PRR roster until 1965, while the FA2/FB2s were retired in 1967
on the eve of the PRR-NYC merger
DTM has now brought this long-awaited first-generation diesel classic – in
Pennsylvania’s classic Brunswick Green “single stripe” livery – to Train
Simulator! The add-on includes both the PRR FA1/’FB1 and FA2/FB2, all
masterfully re-created with great fidelity to details, realistic operating
characteristic, and authentic sounds. And the diesel locomotives are
accompanied in this pack by a wonderful and distinctive selection of authentic
Pennsy rolling stock, including PRR’s N5b caboose, X50 boxcar, H30 covered
hopper (in multiple liveries), unique K9 steel stock car, and F41 flatcar
(with multiple loads including Sherman tanks and Willys Jeeps)!
