Just thought of this while watching a few steam locomotive videos where the Steam Locomotive has a booster on it. Would this eventually be able to be implemented into Open Rails? Many American steam locomotives had them. They were used to give the locomotive extra power while starting a heavy train and then shut down once the train reached a specific speed I believe. Here is a link to what Booster engines are and how they work.
