Ladies and Gentlemen,

Look what the famous shops of the mighty Pennsylvania railroad company have brought to our little town today: a brand new baggage car!

Oh yes, of course there will be a full pack of these cars. Baggage, combine, coach, all what your little 1890s commuter or local passenger train needs. The cars will come in two colors, brown and green, and while they are actual PRR cars, I will include the numbering system that Dick Cowen introduced with his steamers, so you can run (so far) 17 different roadnames on the same model, simply by editing the car number in the scenario editor.

Two down, one to go:

And I still need to add some passengers and mail / freight objects.

That numbering system is a really clever idea. I am glad to see it being used.
Thanks, Pete

Hi,

The cars have been released.
http://golden-age-rails.com/freightcarpacks/prrpax.html

@Pete: Yes, it's a neat system with the dynamic road names, isn't it? I'm not sure who came up with this idea at first, but it sure works like a charm. To my knowledge Rick Grout (diner names on his lightweight cars and Dick Cowen (tender roadnames on the steamers) were the pioneers, but these are only the ones that I am aware of. There might have been others before that.

Cheers!

On his Support page, it says this:

To change the Paypal shopping cart language to English if appears in German at first, all you need to do is delete the "de/" from the "https://www.paypal.com/de/..." in the shopping cart's browser window's address bar.
