The GM Aerotrain addon pack takes you back to the streamline era when this stylish train toured the railroads of the USA as a proposed means to the future of passenger haulage.
By the 1950's, passenger revenues on America's railroads had long since passed their heyday. Automobiles were fast becoming an affordable option for the modern traveller, and flight was also steadily gaining in popularity. If railroad passenger services were to survive, operators realised they would need to change their thinking and somehow take a more cost effective approach.
Today both Aerotrain locomotives and some of the cars survive as inoperable exhibits. GM T1 is on display at the National Transportation Museum in Kirkwood, Missouri. GM T2 can be found at the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, Wisconsin. A third locomotive was constructed for Rock Island's experimental Talgo 'Jet Rocket' train, though the locomotive and cars were not preserved. Gone but certainly not forgotten.
This train looks really slick and futuristic for the 1940-1950s. While driving this train is fun, what makes this DLC weaker than the others is the attention to detail. While the outside looks incredibly good, the inside looks really poor, to the point it looks like two different games. Overall, while it might've looked better, I still recommend it, because there is nothing better than enjoying your coffee while driving the 1950s train through the USA.
