Move your freight the way it's meant to be moved, through The Power of The Atom!

Nuclear locomotives run on uranium fuel cells, rather than coal, solid fuel, or other combustibles. Each nuclear locomotive can take the place of two regular locomotives, being twice as heavy but also twice as powerful.

Nuclear locomotives research is available when Railway, Nuclear power, Electric engine and Low density structure technologies have been completed.

Nuclear locomotives receive random, nuclear-themed names on placement. Want to change them? There's a mod for that.
