This is a repaint of GTrax's Alco PA-1 and PA-2 from the Boston & Albany DLC package, into Missouri Pacific Railroad livery.

Description

ALCoPA MP

ALCo's PA-1 and PA-2 were diesel locomotives built by the American Locomotive Company in a partnership with General Electric in Schenectady, New York during the years 1947 to 1953. These A1A-A1A locomotives were powered by ALCo's model 244 16-cylinder engine. The earlier PA-1 had a 2,000 hp (1,500 kW) engine and the PA-2 was slightly more powerful at 2,250 hp (1680 kW). The PA series was designed to be used in passenger service, whereas the companion FA model was a freight hauler.

The Missouri Pacific Railroad purchased 8 PA-1s and 29 PA-2s during the years 1949 to 1952. The railroad did not own any PB units. The PAs hauled many named passenger trains over MoPac's 11,469-mile line, many of which had the word "Eagle" in their name in recognition of the railroad's "screaming eagle" logos. Examples include the "Texas Eagle," the "Colorado Eagle," and the "Missouri River Eagle." Some of these trains were taken over and run by Amtrak beginning in the 1960s. The Missouri Pacific was purchased by Union Pacific Corporation in 1982.

Requires the Boston & Albany DLC package for Train Simulator Classic, available from Steam at:
https://store.steampowered.com/app/2202028/Train_Simulator_Boston__Albany_Boston__Springfield_Route_AddOn/

To install, first unzip the download, which contains a single RWP file. Install the RWP using the Package Manager feature of the program Utilites.exe which resides in you RailWorks folder. Done! There is no need to copy any other files from your B&A folders and none of your existing B&A files will be overwritten.

One PreLoad consisting of an A-A light locomotive arrangement is provided for Quick Drive service. Or you can always make your own scenarios; in fact you are encouraged to do so! The locomotives appear in the scenario editor as "G-TraX ALCo PA MoPac."

Note from ricksan to librarian: the download archive contains two geo files, both of which I own and which I authorize to be included in the package. This is necessary because in addition to this being a repaint package, certain physical details of the locomotive have been added or reworked.

Please accept license agreement before downloading

Please remember even those this file is free, the author still has rights to the file. Be sure to read the readme that is enclosed for further copyright information and instructions to install the file.
