The China Railways HXD3D is a six-axle AC electric locomotive, produced by the Dalian Locomotive and Rolling Stock Company, and designed for mainline use. It is one of the highest powered (7,200kW) Chinese locomotives, with a design speed of 200 km/h. In normal service, however, its speed is 160 km/h. As the HXD3D is a dedicated high power, high speed locomotive, it is expected to ease the pressure in the railway system where less powerful locomotives are currently used.
Supplied as bonus content with the HXD3D is the ChengYu Railway Part 2 Route and a large selection of Chinese rolling stock from RWSO!

Chengyu Railway Part 2 Route
The route features the Shi Yan Qiao to Lan Gan Tan segment of the Chengdu to Chongqing (ChengYu) Railway. The Chengdu to Chongqing railway, often called the ChengYu Railway for short, is a 505km railway connecting these two cities. It was the first mainline railway built since the foundation of the People’s Republic of China. (Please note this route is not Quick Drive compatible.)
Bonus content compatibility
The RWSO rolling stock was created in RailWorks (prior to the Train Simulator 2012 update) and is compatible with Train Simulator 2016 apart from a known issue of bogie transparency on the passenger car bogies which only appears when viewed from the front of the horizon, which the developers were unable to fix without rebuilding the vehicles from scratch.
The ChengYu 2 route was created in Train Simulator 2012 (prior to the Train Simulator 2013 update) and is compatible with any copy of Train Simulator 2016 purchased before 20th September 2012, or any copy of Train Simulator purchased after 20 September 2012 with the European and US Loco & Asset Packs installed. (Please note: the European Asset Pack is essential, while the US Asset Pack is highly recommended.)
A comprehensive 54-page colour PDF manual in English is included and covers the operation of the locomotive, the Chinese signalling system and details of the rolling stock and route bonus content.
The China Railways HXD3D Electric Locomotive comes with scenarios designed to be used with the ChengYu Part 2 R Route and the RWSO Rolling Stock Pack, both of which are included in this package.
