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 1080 Ti

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Performance Review

The experience of playing RailWorks 2 SW1500 Switcher through a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is going to get a very strong 200+ FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

But then the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti will get a solid big screen performance at 4K, with 200+ frames per second. So we expect you are likely to consider running the game in 4K or 1440p. If you are interested, this is a cost of $0.62 per FPS, assuming we take it based on the GPU’s launch price.

This graphics card, paired with at least 1GB system memory and a suitable processor, like the Intel Core i7-6900K 8-Core 3.2GHz would be perfect to run this game at 4K Ultra.

In summary, if you are looking to play RailWorks 2 SW1500 Switcher in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 200+ frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 200+ FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 200+ FPS in Ultra as well.
