Train Engines

Here are all of the train engines available in the game grouped by engine type in the order that they appear – steam, diesel, electric, monorail, then maglev. Then they are sorted firstly by climate – Temperate, Sub-Arctic and Sub-Tropical, then Toyland; and secondly by the year in which they were designed.

Trains are, in my opinion, the most interesting form of transport in OpenTTD.
