Header Locomotives


Locomotives in TrainStation are used to haul Materials Material, Passengers Passenger, Mail Mail and Special XP to Contractors, Friends, and remote Destinations. The player earns access to a wide range of Locomotive types covering the entire span of railway history, from vintage Steam engines to futuristic Hyperloops. Each type of Locomotive can apply a Bonus to the wagons behind it, and using certain Special Buildings Logo Special can increase this Bonus even further.

TrainStation includes many real-world locomotives, but also offers many fictional models created by Pixel Federation.

Steam LocomotivesEdit

Loco Steam
Steam Locomotives engines are an example of external combustion engines. The heat source is located outside of the cylinder (in contrast to internal combustion engines). The same principle is used to power Nimitz-class aircraft carriers.

Steam Locomotives are unlocked by default, and give no bonus for passengers or materials. The tax for sending Steam Locomotives is Gold.

Diesel LocomotivesEdit

Loco Diesel
Diesel Locomotives engines began replacing Steam power in the early 1900s. Diesel engines burn liquid fuel in an internal combustion engine/turbine to produce motion or generate electricity for motors.

Diesel Locomotives are unlocked from level 25, and give a 40% bonus on the load. To use Diesel Locomotives first Dieselisation to buy. The tax for sending Diesel Locomotives is Fuel.

Electric LocomotivesEdit

Loco Electric
Electric Locomotives engines were developed to eliminate the smoke produced by earlier locomotives and take advantage of efficient electric motors using overhead lines or powered rails.

Electric Locomotives are unlocked from level 40, and give a bonus of 100% on passengers and mail. To use Electric Locomotives first Electrification to buy. The tax for sending Electric Locomotives is U-235.

Maglev LocomotivesEdit

Loco Maglev
Maglev Locomotives are not technically trains, but use electric Magnetic Levitation to lift the train above the track and provide propulsion with very little friction resistance.

Maglev Locomotives are unlocked from level 120, and do not give a bonus on the charge. To use Maglev Locomotives first Maglev Era to buy. The tax for sending Maglev Locomotives is U-235.

Hyperloop LocomotivesEdit

Loco Hyperloop
Hyperloop Locomotives are not technically trains, but are more like Maglevs which travel inside tubes containing a vacuum to nearly eliminate air drag resistance.

Hyperloop Locomotives are unlocked from level 200, and do not give a bonus on the load. To use Hyperloop Locomotieven first Hyperloop Era to buy. The tax for sending Hyperloop Locomotives is Gold.
