    Default S160 in Germany

    Hello,
    some days ago I read an interesting article in a German railroad magazine (Eisenbahn-Kurier) about the S160 "Rattlesnakes" in Europe and especially in Germany. In the file library I discovered exactly that engine. Before I could use her I had to do some changes: Because I wanted to use the loco in Germany I had to change the vacuum brake into air brake. I also did some changes to the coupling distance and bounding boxes. The tender was defined as "freight" in the wag file. I changed that and also gave it intake points for coal and water.
    Most of the S160 worked in Bremen, but according to wikipedia they also were in Koblenz. So I took German Railroads' beautiful Mosel route (the version without overhead wires) for my first explore run.

    Keep on steamin'!

    Although these locos have an air pump,they would certainly have been vacuum braked when they worked in the UK;but of course in Germany would have been air braked.
