Realistic Electric Trains

Realistic Electric Trains - or RET for short - adds locomotives to Factorio that are powered with electricity from overhead lines, rather than fuel.

Mod Portal
Forum thread

Currently, two basic electric locomotives and overhead line poles with and without integrated signals are implemented. I'm planning on adding higher-tier locomotives and better 3D models in the near future.


A small tutorial/reference for the mod can be found on the mod portal.


If you find a bug, please report it via the GitHub issue tracker or in the mod portal. Please provide useful bug reports. If you want to know what that means, here is an article for you.


If you want to contribute, feel free to do so via a git pull request. Please test your code and try to document it. If you want to submit graphics or better 3D models, you can do so too. For 3D models I need the exact camera and animation setup in order to have the images rendered pixel-perfectly.

Please note though, that I obviously cannot accept any random change. If you want to know whether I like an idea of yours, just ask in the forum.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
