The AT&N Class 280-157 ‘Consolidation’ was a freight locomotive operating on a short railroad in the Deep South of the USA, and is now available for Train Simulator.
The Class 280-157 was built by Lima Locomotive Works for the Alabama, Tennessee and Northern Railroad (AT&N). ‘Consolidation’ was the name given to American steam locomotives with a 2-8-0 wheel arrangement, and five of the Class 280-157 were built in the 1920s, all for the AT&N. The AT&N was a short freight line that operated between Mobile and Reform, in Alabama, founded in 1897 as the Carrollton Short Line Railway and operating until 1971 when it was absorbed into its then parent company, the St Louis-San Francisco Railway. The Class 280-157 ‘Consolidation’ for Train Simulator, developed by Smokebox, is available in Alabama, Tennessee and Northern Railroad livery and features detailed controls and gauges, opening cab doors, windows, ventilator hatch and storm window, detailed internal and external animations and expert driving mode for sophisticated locomotive controls.
