    We need a steam-era route for TSW2020. Here's a few possible ideas to make operating steam locos possible, plus a few route ideas:

    1.) Automatic fireman
    2.) Multiplayer: P.1 as Engineer; P.2 as Fireman
    3.) Single Player: Scenarios where player works as fireman or engineer.

    Route ideas:
    -N&W in the 1940s-50s with J-Class 4-8-4, A-Class 2-6-6-4, and Y6b-Class 2-8-8-2, plus maybe a smaller engine for local trains or switching
    -ATSF (Cajon or something) in the 1940s-50s with 3751- or 2900-Class 4-8-4, 2-10-4 Texas, and one or two other locos
    -SP Donner Pass in the 1940s-50s with Cab Forwards and 2-8-0 Consolidations
    -Another SP route (Tehachapi, Peninsula Corridor, etc.) in the 1940s-50s with AC-9 2-8-8-4, GS2/3/4 4-8-4, and Consolidation
    -UP Sherman Hill with Big Boy, Challenger, 4-12-2, and others
    -B&O (maybe Sand Patch 1940s) with EM-1 2-8-8-4 and a couple of other engines
    -C&O
    -DM&IR with M4 Yellowstone 2-8-8-4 and other engines
    -CP or CN
    -Narrow Gauge Steam: Cumbres and Toltec, Durango and Silverton, White Pass and Yukon, Ffestiniog, etc.
    -British: GWR, LMS, or LNER (with engines such as LNER A3 Flying Scotsman, A4 Mallard, etc.; LMS Royal Scot, Princess Coronation, Black Five etc.; GWR Castle, Pannier Tank, etc.)
    -France, Germany, and other countries

    But the multilayer and auto fireman sound great

    Actually, if I want to see a steam heritage loco, I'll go see it in the real world. The interest of simulation in my opinion, is to allow to recreate things that don't exist anymore, like steam engines working on the main line doing their everyday job, rather than a limited tourist attraction.

    I dont want to drive a small tank engine at restricted speed. I'd rather have a powerful 4-8-4 in my control.

    I just want to drive any half-decent steam loco in the Unreal 4 engine. So beautiful.
