Ooooooo, container wagons. Nice! Refitable to nearly everything?

Everything except passengers.
Sweet, I'm impatiently awaiting the newly containerized cows!

Congrats on Iron Horse 2, I'm really liking it.

There are a few challenges: North America had high maximum speeds (although not average speeds) for passenger and hotshot freight from about 1900 onwards, and real-life train speeds have broadly declined since 1950s. This is obviously a problem for gameplay progression, so there will have to be faking :twisted:
I suppose one could make a separate line of expensive high speed engines like something-like-GS-4->some kind of heavy and fast diesel or GTEL->Turbo Train->Jet Train->Something from the future.

There are plenty of US trains like that with theoretical high top speeds, it's only reality that gets in the way :twisted:
