EMD BL2

The BL2 is one of the most unusual locomotives in the history of the American railroad. It was conceived as an ancillary train locomotive and could therefore be used both for light goods traffic as well for passenger traffic. Its unusual form is due to the attempt to make this train interesting and attractive for passenger traffic.
Although it wasn't really one of the really successful locomotives, it still marks the transition from the older conventional design of the diesel locomotive to the later more modern form of the shunting locomotives.

Zeppelin

(Click the image for an animated version (933KB though))

This mighty airship originates directly from the workshop of the famous Graf Zeppelin. As one of the last models built, it broke all records with respect to size, speed and transport capacity.
Despite various disadvantages compared to other means of transport, we are convinced that it will find a worthy place and many friends to go with it in this game.

Antonow An-225 Mrija

Image

The largest airplane in the world, the gigantic six-engined Antonow An-225 Mrija, is only something for transport entrepreneurs who have extraordinary requirements with regard to transport capacity. In real life, these airplanes are used for the transportation of rocket elements. We do not want to place such limitations on the players, and thus it is possible to use these airplanes to transport enormous quantities of conventional goods.

Diesel loco V200

Image
(click to zoom)

With the German production series V 200 we are introducing an all-purpose high-performance locomotive. It boasts a relatively high speed in addition to sufficient tractive power and is therefore suited for freight traffic as well as passenger transport.

The same distinctive looks as in real live. The vehicles won't be the problem.

This was a very popular steam engine, and suited to almost any purpose. It was designed before the locomotive specialization had set in properly

Rolls Royce Silver Ghost

Image
(click to zoom)

The name Rolls Royce instantly conjures up images of expensive luxury limousines. Few people are probably aware that this renowned company also used to produce buses. Though their capacity was no real match for our modern buses.

Hovercraft

(click to zoom)

A fast, modern means of transport for the conveyance of passengers across water. Its capacity is rather low, but its high speed makes up for that.

Or on land. And besides that: I always thought capacity was moderate compared to its size.
