A mod that CHANGES the base stats of the locomotive to make it much heavier and powerful (resulting in MUCH lower acceleration and deceleration while still having a high max-speed).

This mod is designed for all people who find current train management too simple.
You will be challenged by:
-placing signals more carefully
-designing junctions in a way that a lot of trains can pass through at the same time
-designing train stations in a way that trains have to start/stop less often.
You will be rewarded for using much longer trains (because trains will block each other less often).

New stats as requested by greengem:

Locomotive:
    Weight: 500,000 (250 times the amount)
    Max Speed: 646 kph (2.375 times the default amount, to compensate for the slow acceleration)
    Braking Force: 80 (8 times the amount)
    Max Power: 4000kW (6.66 times the amount)
    Burner Effectivity: 10 (10 times the amount)

Cargo and Fluid Wagons:
    Braking Force: 0
    Max Speed: 646 kph

The FARL locomotive is unaffected!
Using more than one locomotive facing the same direction will NOT result in having higher acceleration.
If you find building train stations tedious and annoying, check out my other mod https://mods.factorio.com/mods/Burny/BurnysTSBC
If you don't like the stats of this mod, unzip the .zip file and edit the stats in the data-updates.lua file!

TODO list:
-Balancing the brakes and fuel consumption
-Add another version of this mod to create a SEPERATE locomotive instead of REPLACING the normal locomotive
-Add compatibility to other mods (mods that add more locomotives / cargo wagons)
