Description
After the very successful Classes 1170 and 1170.1 with bogies, the BBÖ (Austrian Federal Railways) ordered 41 improved electric locomotives as Class 1170.2. They were originally used for passenger trains on the newly electrified Western- and Tauern-Routes. After WW2 the 38 remaining locos were modernized and could be able to prove themself as universal used locomotives for 61 years. Very significant were the very loud, roaring engines, which was reproduced for Transport Fever.

Included models:
BBÖ 1170.218 (1934 - 1945): Moss green with corner-doors
DRB E45.215 (1940 - 1953): Grey with labels "U.S. Zone Österreich" and corner-doors
ÖBB 1245.514 (1945 - 1975): Fir green; partially modernized, with new windows, but old pantographs
ÖBB 1245.518 (1970 - 1987): Blood orange with beige lines, modernized with new pantographs and taillight

Features:
- The models are built historically correct, every single detail is where it's supposed to be
- Realistic sound-set
- All features of TPF are supported (except logos)

Vehicle specifications:
- Vehicle type: Electric locomotive
- Available: 1934-1987 in different conditions and liveries
- Top speed: 80 kph
- Power: 1840 kW
- Tractive effort: 200 kN
- Weight: 83 tons

For damages to software or hardware, I accept no responsibility.

Many thanks to @Markus1014 for painting the two modernized versions!

I wish you much fun with these famous "old electrics"!

I have to admit, at first I was inclined to dismiss this pack as nice looking and sounding, but a novelty whose functions were better filled by other engines. Then I found a perfect niche for them: short to medium distance industrial railways. Their decent speed makes them ideal for shuttling cargo between nearby industries, and their power means that they hardly notice grades and they accelerate very quickly. Plus their small size means they take up very little room in platforms, meaning more room for freight wagons. I now find them indespensible.
