The Locomotives window allows you to edit your Locomotive roster. You can enter a locomotive's number, road, model, type, and length. You can optionally add the engine's build date and owner. If you want a group of engines to be assigned as a unit, you can create a "consist". The engine type is used by the program to determine where engines are picked up and or stored at the various locations on your layout. Some of default engine types are electric, diesel, gas turbine, and steam.
