Era 2 has 6 cargo engines, 2 passenger engines and bonus engines. All engines in this era are named after animals.

Cargo EnginesEdit

The Elephant is the best engine overall in this era, although the Bat is useful early on. The Lynx is not too far behind depending on waiting times.

If you didn't get coupling from Era 1, the Bat is a good starting engine - and is more profitable than the Falcon + coupling, although the Giraffe is useful if you don't have an Era 1 passenger train.
