    Wentward Locomotive Division FreightSeries 30-2 diesel locomotive

    DOWNLOAD: https://www.beamng.com/resources/wld-fs30-2-diesel-electric-locomotive.7960/

    The Wentward Locomotive Division Freight Series 30(00 hp)-2 is an American heavy six axle diesel-electric freight locomotive. It was built from 1972 to 1989. It has a 3000 horsepower V16 diesel engine that is connected to a generator that powers the traction motors.

    This is my first big mod and it took 7 months to make it. It is not perfect but I'd say that it's still pretty good.

    INSTRUCTIONS

    How to put the locomotive on train tracks


    Controls:

    • Air brake (the whole train will brake if there are multiple units coupled): arrow down
    • Independent brake (only the locomotive will brake): P / spacebar
    • Horn: H
    • Couplers: L
    • Front headlights: N
    • Front ditch lights: K
    • Rear headlights: B
    • Rear ditch lights: I
    • Interior lights: Y
    • Beacon light: M
    • Bell: press M two times
    HOW TO DRIVE IT

    • USE REALISTIC GEARBOX BEHAVIOR!
    • Make sure that gear N is selected, not M1 or M2
    • Press V and throttle to start the diesel engine (if it isn't already running)
    • Release air brakes (arrow down) and independent brakes (P / space bar)
    • Move the reverser to the direction where you want to go (use the range box icon thing to change direction, L = forward, H = reverse) and shift into M1
    • FLOOR IT!
    • Reduce throttle if it is accelerating too fast
    • You can slow down the train with air brakes (arrow down, affects the whole train) or with the independent brake (P / space bar, affects only the locomotive)
    • Or you can use dynamic brakes if your locomotive has them
      • Don't press throttle
      • Shift into M2
      • Apply throttle (more throttle = more braking)
      • You can stop the train with air brakes or shift into M1 and keep driving
    • REMINDER The dynamic brake isn't effective under 20 km/h
    Multiple unit operation
    Multiple unit operation is completely possible but a bit hard to understand because of the way couplers work in BeamNG. Basically there are two types of couplers: coupler A and coupler B. Coupler A can't couple with another coupler A, coupler B can't couple with another coupler B, but coupler A can coupler with coupler B. You must have the couplers just like this or it won't work correctly.

    You also have to couple them in this order. It doesn't matter how much locomotives you have, but you must first couple the second last unit to the last unit, then the 3rd last to the 2nd last and so on.

    Air brakes and throttle can now be controlled only from the 1st unit. Remember to check that every locomotive wants to go to the same direction or you might have a locomotive tug of war.

    Please read this first if the locomotive doesn't move before giving 1 star reviews
    - 99.9% of the time it's just the wheels stuck inside the rails. Lift the locomotive in world editor (F11) and try again
    - 0.01% of the time it's because one of the trucks or both aren't on tracks correctly

    Amazing! We've needed this in beam for a while now.
    --- Post updated ---
    Oh, and I think it should be a Wentward.

    Fact: Union Pacific takes over all the rails in the US, in till they started to rebel. Just to point.

    Holy shit, PLEASE finish this. I love me driving some locomotives, and now I would be able to do it in BeamNG... Even if it's pointless :D

    Wishing that someone could make a steam train, not types of diesels. (but really I like your train)
    This would happen if people forget steam trains on this forum.

    So did you make the model from scratch? If not credit the author please :)
    (if YOU made it how about also a rebranding one?)

    I would honestly be happy with the mod as it is now, even if it is unfinished just so I could haul it around on the back of a flatbed

    Who wouldn't want to use trains in the game? I would use them to murder cars (because I'm into destruction within games).

    I Can't Agree Enough.

    Here's to hoping this mod makes it.


    Well, if Hirochi can have a piano, I don't see why Wentward can't have a train.

    Wentward seems more of a bus coach-builder.

    It could be a Randolph though.

    So if I look for a train model, I will not find this one, right?

    You can try to find it but you won't find it. The real life counterpart of this is a SD40-2 so you can try searching "sd40-2 3d model". Obviosly there are other models but you won't find this, because it IS mine.
