your new locomotive can use some of those sounds. If you altered these folders, you will need to reinstall Microsoft Train Simulator.

TRAILING UNITS  VS.  LEAD UNITS
If you attempt to run a TU locomotive as the lead loco, the simulation will not load properly. That's why it has
a unique name in the activity editor (i.e., 'TU SP #7505') so that you don't confuse them with other locos in the locomotive 
list.

TU locos work well as idle units on a siding etc., and will throttle up when coupled by a drivable unit. 
Locomotive information can be found by clicking the 'details' tab in Train Simulator

These locomotives come with the 1024x1024 textures only.   

If you don't already have the Train Simulator update, you can get it from the website:  
www.microsoft.com/games/trainsim/

The activity editor WILL PROMPT you upon saving that your lead engine is not 'drivable'.
