• why is it that some train sets have deisel engines but carry passenger & mail. that gives a 45% bonus & if passenger wagons are in set with electric engines you will get 100% bonus right? i thought cargo went with deisel engines & passenger & mail went with electric engines in order to get the best bonus. i'm confused..easily. lol.

    • Why do hot dogs come in packages of 10 and hot dog buns come in packages of 8?

      How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?

      The world may never know...

      Seriously, though, I'm not sure why they do that. Usually they compensate by giving the diesel passenger sets higher set bonuses.

      E.g. you may see +25% set bonus on an electric passenger set and +140% on a diesel passenger set

      The one that will really make you scratch your head is King of the Race, an electric freight train set...

    • There is an advantage to buying diesel. As you move thru the game, better sets are offered. If electric, the old is retired/sold. If diesel, the loco is still useful for hauling freight.

    • King of the Race is not the only electric cargo set in the game.

      Another answer to the question in the OP is: Because it shows that there's a time and a place for everything. Even if the bonuses need to be adjusted to keep the game balanced, it's appropriate for Pixel to give us a diesel passenger set and an electric cargo set occasionally.

      Some would argue that they're not only appropriate, but also necessary. After all, those things exist with real trains. Why shouldn't they exist in one of the best train games ever made?

    • Yep, makes the game more interesting. My DB Class 602 was short lived as a passenger loco, but ran for another month as a cargo hauler. (It'll be retired this weekend.)
