Description
Features and Information

  • Introduced: 1960
  • Production ends: 1978
  • Top Speed: 105
  • Tractive Effort: 283.57 kN

In the late 1950s, Canadian National purchased many FPA-4's from ALCo's Canadian partner, Montreal Locomotive Works (MLW). This locomotive was often used to pull everything from commuter trains in Toronto and Montreal to pulling CN's flagship train, the Super Continental.

NOTE: This repaint was made with the base game's ALCo PA model, and all that was changed to make it resemble the FPA-4 was its stats.

105 km/h. The game uses the Metric system.

105 kmh or 105mph?

After finding a photo of a Canadian National baggage car that resembles the B60b, I may reskin that with donoteat's permission. Of course, I have a few other projects on the go at once and it will take a week or two before I get to that.

I believe the Alco FPA/FPB were variants of the FA/FB. While the FA/FB were originally built for freight, the FPA/FPB added a steam generator and large water tank for heating passenger cars.

Though the FA/FB have a similar look to the PA/PB, there are a number of physical differences, not least of which is the FA/FB are shorter and have different trucks.

The FPA-4/FPB-4 were visually different due to the additional radiator space that was positioned below the shutters. It had less horsepower and a lower top speed than the American ALCo PA, but the FPA-4 had a higher tractive effort.

Also, making a baggage car would require making an entirely new model, as the windows and doors are actually part of the model and not simply painted on. I could make a repaint of donoteat's PRR B60b baggage car with his permission, though it doesn't look much like baggage cars of many other railways

What's the difference between this and the FPA-4? Also, would it be possible to do a baggage car repaint?
