Transport Fever 2 - LMS Duchess 4-6-2
Oh it’s nothing, just the most powerful express passenger locomotive in the UK
Guess who’s back, back again. Large Stanier Picific’s back, tell a friend.
Returning to TpF2 after far too long is the iconic Stanier Coronation Pacific, or Duchess, depending on your preference. These are the huge unstreamlined passenger pacifics that stormed the West Coast Mainline from the late 1930s to late 1960s.
Based off of the already successful Princess Royal class, these engines went by a building regime of ‘Biggest boiler, largest firebox, biggest wheels the loading gauge would allow’. The result is a huge engine capable of 100mph+ running. In 1937, a streamlined member of the class reached 114mph on the way to Crewe, and nearly derailed in the attempt (probably just trying to avoid Crewe, who can blame it).
In this pack (yes, pack) you get a total of 6 flavours to choose from:
LMS Crimson Lake
LMS Lined Black
BR Express Blue
BR Unlined Black
BR Brunswick Green
For your sanity, they have a group menu so your menu isn’t filled with large engines.
Not included are assets yet, may well be but I just never got around to doing it.
These engines share the same stats as listed on their Wiki page, so that’s fun.
Its not required, but recommended to have the Stanier Princess Royal 4-6-2 mod installed, as these mods share some DNA and also one is a prequel to the other.
