RailWorks 2 SW1500 Switcher packshot image
Built by the General Motors Electromotive Division as a replacement of the SW1200, the SW1500 was intended for switching duties, and was capable of light branch line work as a road switcher. It was a development of the SW1200 and previous SW-series switchers dating back many years earlier, and was fitted with a 1500 horsepower two-stroke V-12 diesel engine. A total of 808 examples were built from 1966 to 1974, serving industrial and railroad operators across the length and breadth of the United States, with approximately a quarter of the whole production initially purchased by the Southern Pacific Railroad. A huge number of SW1500s can still be found in use today, proving the durability and versatility of this old locomotive design.

RailWorks 2 SW1500 Switcher

GeForce GTX 950 2GB

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 950 2GB Performance Review

Getting the RailWorks 2 SW1500 Switcher running while using a GeForce GTX 950 2GB can see it could return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. And those results are assuming a 1920x1080 screen resolution at High setting level.

Playing RailWorks 2 SW1500 Switcher on Ultra 4k is certainly possible with this graphics card and we expect it will return around 200+ frames per second at that top scale resolution.

Finding a PC with this gpu or better would return some strong FPS in RailWorks 2 SW1500 Switcher. We would definitely recommend running at 4K screen res and on ultra, before trying any lower screen resolution. You would also need at least 1GB of RAM. Perhaps couple this gaming PC with a processor that's as powerful as the Intel Core i5-4460 3.2GHz and Ultra 4K would be a smooth experience.

In summary, the GeForce GTX 950 2GB is clearly an overpowered bit of hardware for RailWorks 2 SW1500 Switcher, but it certainly gives you the choice of desired in game visuals. With 1080p Ultra coming in at 200+ FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 200+ frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 200+ FPS.
