Thread: Is there a free ACS64?

  1. #1

    Default Is there a free ACS64?

    While the TigerTrains one looks nice, I have so far avoided paying for any train stuff and would like to continue that if possible!

    Is there any free ACS-64 engine for MSTS? Or is TT the only one?

    Hi,

    WHY?? Without these companies, which are often "one-man affairs", we'd be all the poorer. $11.00 isn't a large sum, so empty your piggy bank and splash out on an ACS-64 set!

    The alternative is for you to build your own - you can get Train Sim Modeler for free, so all you need is your time and, more importantly, skill.

    What Ged said. For the price of a pack of smokes or a couple of $tarbucks drinks, you could have almost any model you want.

    It's true that it's cheap. I just try to avoid paying.

    I have purchased the TT ACS64 and it is a very good model, I am currently testing it with freight.
    I am finding it difficult to get good information on tractive effort.
    The blended braking is new to me so taking a while to get used to.
    Cheers

    Wikipedia has all the performance data on the Siemans ACS-64 including traction effort and braking,

    I don't feel comfortable with those figures.
    It is using IGBT technology and those figures suggest 50% less that other IGBT loco's?
