Production series[edit | edit source]

There are different available production series of this engine. The default is based on the 1835 german Adler which was the first locomotive that was successfully used commercially for the rail transport of passengers and goods in Germany. There are also a Rhaetian LD G 3/4 from Switzerland in two painted variants and also a General class from the USA. They all perform identically, and the only change is cosmetic.
