this is a direct head to head comparison of all standard engines of each era.
all engines are tested 100% upgraded and serviced.
please note: this is a pure profit per hour comparison.
yes, there are 3-4 other tools floating around, but, i wanted something people could see the results on 1 sheet without having to enter 5-8 parameters.
sheet is read only, feel free to copy or share at will.
Tested on Live servers.
Each engine was put on the exact same route (that does mean all used the same facility at the same time to haul from). all routes were single stop runs between 1 to 8 tracks from a city.
No, this sheet does not factor in Wait time difference, declining service levels, age of engines, lack of research, track maintenance, strikes, overtime, storms or integration.
It also does not cover any bonus engines.
And no, i will not add different variables. if you want that, copy the sheet and add them yourself.
this has been designed as a simple at a glance sheet for new players, or for those who don't have the time to dig into the more advanced comparison tools.
