Granger Heartland: Kansas City – Topeka

Anchored on the great railroad town of Kansas City, Union Pacific’s Heartland Service Unit is perfectly named, stretching through America’s vibrant and busy granger heartland. And now, extraordinary Union Pacific granger-country main line railroading comes to Train Simulator with the Kansas City – Topeka route!
The 67 mile Granger Heartland: Kansas City-Topeka route extends from Union Pacific’s 18th Street and Armourdale yards in Kansas City (Kansas) to Topeka, junction site with three important Union Pacific lines that stretch on westward. In addition to hosting expansive main line traffic, the route is home to multiple and diverse lineside customers including skyscraper-tall grain elevators, auto distribution facilities, and manufacturing companies.

Union Pacific SD9043MAC

Climb aboard for some heavy freight-hauling – with the Electro-Motive SD9043MAC wearing Union Pacific’s famed and classic yellow-and-gray livery.
North America’s large railroads have historically had an appetite for ever bigger and more powerful locomotives and in the mid-1990s, both Electro-Motive and General Electric attempted to satisfy that horsepower hunger with single-power-plant, six-axle, 6,000-horsepower diesel locomotives. GE’s entry into this 6,000-horsepower locomotive competition was the AC6000CW, while Electro-Motive cataloged the SD90MAC.
During the SD9043MACs active years on the Union Pacific, the diesels most often worked heavy-tonnage trains such as unit grain or coal consists and regardless of their lack of commercial success, the massive diesels – which stretched 80-feet long, weighed more than 400,000 pounds, sported huge flared radiators, and rode atop advanced “steerable” trucks – made for an impressive sight from trackside.
The Granger Heartland Twin Pack is available now on Steam at 30% off when you purchase together!
