RailWorks Announces Historic Southern Pacific Cab-Forward Locomotive

Railsimulator.com Ltd., today released details regarding the upcoming Southern Pacific Railroad Cab-Forward locomotive add-on for the award-winning Train Simulator 2012. The locomotive is expected to release this summer as a download on Steam.

The innovative AC-11 Cab Forward was designed by Southern Pacific in the early twentieth century as long tunnels and snow sheds in the steep terrain of the Sierra Nevada mountains funneled dangerous exhaust fumes back toward the crew compartments and almost asphyxiated everyone. Moving the cab to the front of the locomotive in front of the funnel solved the problem and greatly increased visibility. These powerful and unique locomotives were eventually retired in the 1950's.

"The cab forward design is a landmark of railroad innovation and a key milestone in linking California with the rest of the United States and thus fueling its economic boom," said Paul Jackson, CEO of RailSimulator.com. "We're happy to be bringing such a remarkable and popular locomotive to our community."
