Era 2 has 6 engines and a bonus engine.

Usually the Lynx is the engine to aim for in era 2.

There are two different paths to the Lynx:

  • Panther (A): 46 pts.
  • Black bear (B): 60 pts.

If you didn't get coupling from Era 1, you might still consider path B, if you need a decent Era 2 engine before you've reached the Lynx.
