Howdy,
To be honest I've given Mr. "DickyJim" ALOT of money over the years, and I've never regretted it.
I guess my point is I'm just surprised DTG never made an E-unit of any variety. Considering some of the routes and trains they have produced over the years, E's would of been right at home on some of them. Comparatively, we have had its British counterpart since Rail Simulator days (The Deltic); which I would be remiss if I didn't mention is still a great engine.
Either way, not meant to be a gripe more of an observation.

Looking forward to whatever the future holds.
!*cheers*!

Did alittle work on the Bi-Levels.
Fixed the AC unit roof vents and changed the Milwaukee font to a "more" accurate one.
Also, learned how to use Blender last night and imported my first child objects, Marker/Class Lights! !*YAAA*!
Sky is the limit now!

I have no intentions of making the lights work and they will be repainted to match the cars a little closer.

Have a nice day!

Nice work so far! I've been in the com for a long time now, but I have yet to master child object making. *!sad!*

As mentioned before, we need E units to go with this. Now, we can have E units! http://store.steampowered.com/app/67800 ... oco_AddOn/

Honestly, I would have done them by now, but I don't have the DLC yet. *!embar*!

Are these gallery trailer cars from the Racetrack that is available on Steam? The cars itself look like its smoothsides and that the ribs are textures. I tried repainting the Peninsula Corridor cars to the old SP gallery cars but it didn't work out because of the ribs being part of the model.

Technically they are the Very Low Poly (VLP) cars they created for yard filler and AI trains. However, to get the cabview from the Caltrain cabcar to work I used the .bin from caltrain and the .geo from the Racetrack. Naturally they didn't match up well and that involved ALOT of futzing. On another note the trailer car will use the passenger view from the racetrack Metra car. I'll post shots of that when I have something to show off.

In my travels gathering information on Gallery Bi-level cars I came across those SP cars. As a Midwestern boy I had never seen hide nor hair of them. Regardless, they look great! If your interested shoot me a PM CArailroader and maybe I can help get you started and save you alot of headaches.

!*salute*!
Take care folks!

Is the underside black or Silver? I can get you photos of some MILW E9s at the museum, and I do believe I have the font for the logos around here somewhere.
