    They are offering this locomotive for consle now but is it just a lone loco,because the details mentions a boxcar but i have not seen it shown or mentioned in youtube videos about this dlc.It is also commented about how overpriced this loco is compared to other tsw dlc offerings.There are other tsw dlc locos that are just single engines,so hows this different?

    This engine first available on November 29, 2017 and comes with 2 freight cars, neither of which is a boxcar. From its Steam Store page:
    "Today, CSX continues to employ a large fleet of veteran GP40-2s in road, local, and switching duties across its system. And now, the successful Electro-Motive GP40-2, in classic CSX “YN2” and modern “YN3b” liveries, comes to Train Sim World: CSX Heavy Haul, accompanied by two new modern freight cars, a 73-foot centerbeam flatcar and a CSX 42-foot steel coil car."

    Here's a link to its store page: https://store.steampowered.com/app/...CSX_GP402_Loco_AddOn/?curator_clanid=27920602 .

    The GP40 was first released for Sand Patch and came with flatcars However as Sand patch is a PC only route and the NEC already has them as part of it's core DLC then you only get a loco
    as the GP40 is not going to get moved over to TSW2 as part of the preserved collection then its total waste of money unless you're sticking with TSW2020

    Do you have a link to the page where you saw this offer? I’m assuming this is something on Steam? Post the link if you can... thanks!

    ...thanks for the link! After checking out the desc on this item, it looks like ‘Boxcar’ just refers to one of the GP40-2 paint schemes included in this DLC. There are no freight cars included as far as I can tell, just the loco in two different paint schemes.

    I really wanted this loco on my PS4... if they made it available I would still buy it, even without the add’l freight cars.
