Whats next for Golden Age?

Unread postby BNSF650 » Sun Nov 20, 2011 8:01 pm

I have to say Golden Age has brought us alot of good rolling stock cars for railworks. I would like to know if we can see any more great stuff and what to expect?

I would like to put in some request for cars we really need.

More tanks cars would really be great to have. Also Coal cars and coil steel cars and Some 89Ft TOFC's would be great.

I just want to say Thank you for your hard work *!!thnx!!*

He's working on bringing up to RW3 standards with all the existing stock. That's a pretty big task!

A tank. No, not a battle tank.

Either that or someone find me some models of trucks.

Would really like to see a string of these on flatcars.
I'm going to give it a try, or could someone try these?

Well, we know he's already working on an SD9, which I'm very excited for.
viewtopic.php?f=20&t=2639

And also the New Haven route, which I am also very excited for as it is steam-era and could potentially be visited by some equipment from my beloved B&M.

Hi,

Whew, so many ideas! **!!bang!!** But seriously, thanks for the input. A lot of great ideas and stuff to look into. !!det!! The update madness will be over soon (I'll go a bit slower through the repaints, routes, scenarios !*hp*! ) -- so I'm beginning to look for new projects.

Or maybe just complete some of many vaporware items I have laying around here. !!**sorry**!!

Cheers,
Michael

Yeah, don't forget the F7 repaint for the RWA on the MC&SA. Can't run those scenarios inside the cab after 2012.

That gives me a idea, perhaps I ought to build a battle tank as a scenery object. A big army tank.

One of these.

There's the Sherman that comes with the BigBoy... not exactly modern though.

No, but for once with RW, it was prototypical. I love that scenario, and the Big Boy. !!*ok*!!
