    So kind of an oddball here, but Union Pacific SD24's could be made into a DLC for Train Simulator for either Sherman Hill, or the Wasatch Grade.

    The SD24 was built between July 1958, and March 1963. As its name states, it produced 2,400hp from EMD's 567D3 engine. A total of 224 were built, with 45 of them being B-Units, which were solely used by the UP. Other notable buyers were the Santa Fe and the Southern Railway.

    UP owned 79 of these units, with a total of 30 A units #400-429, 45 B units #400b-444b, and the 4 demonstrator units, numbered 445-448. UP 448 was the only High Hood Cab Loco on UP's roster.

    If these would come to Train Simulator, they could in both the "Dependable Transportation" Livery and maybe the larger font livery UP started using in the mid 70's. (Though some SD24s were "Mated" with yard slugs by then and assigned to heavy freight switching in Hump yards)

    Definitely a unique locomotive. Would be cool to see this and other unique locomotives in the game. :)

    I'd love a Santa Fe version for Cajon Pass.

    Sadly though, that won't happen because of the licensing :/ But, UP and SOU would still be cool! (even if we don't have an SOU route yet)

    Maybe we will get a SOU route in the future (fingers crossed).

    Saluda would be epic IMO.

    These would be great to run in conjunction with the Turbine and the other first and second gen UP diesels (GP20, GP30, GP9).
