A Light Rail Locomotive is used for mass transit of passengers and/or cargo.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Light rail networks frequently serve large urbs, metropolises, and dense urban areas. Since they focus on lighter intercity urban traffic, they can be built with less robust tracks, locomotives, and passenger wagons, significantly saving costs and materials compared to their larger, industrial freight carrying cousins.

n.b. Light Rail Locomotives may double as Railroad Carriages when they are named Railcars.
