VRC U30c

This offering from VRC just about has it all. Exquisite attention to detail on the pieces and parts, animation all over the place give this a great piece of eye candy. A detailed 27 page instruction manual walks you through a total complete realistic start up and operating controls. If you are the lazy sort just push the z key and sit there for a minute or two and watch while the switches click in and the prime mover groans into life. The sounds are recorded from a real live U30 at the Illinois Railroad Museum and are first rate. For those of you old enough just close your eyes and remember.
Of course I have no idea of what driving one of these magnificent animals was really like but this thing just has a sense of heft and smoothness. This is a keeper and worth the investment. Additionally it's pretty easy to paint so I suspect there will be a lot of variations out there before this one has run it's course.

If you buy this you will not be disappointed.

I got mine last night totally amazing the talent applied to making models for this sim. Could of never dreamed when I bought my first copy of this game that we would ever have models like this that are being offered now. Outstanding Package.......

I have all of VRC engines and like them all very much. Last night I found on his site a section with some distressed NS engines and scooped them up right away.
To my surprise these are great pieces of beat up engines that work real fine. Looking forward to more road names and more Rust:)
Prices are great also.
Have a look at his site for the distressed engines.

Keep um coming Jerry

Hi guys!
You have released great amazing U30C(B) model! Imho, it is more intresting than DTG one. But I think you have some small problems in them.
1. In exterior U30B model has front kickstep, but interior model hasn`t it;
2. There is no lamp`s light circle

Have you thought of posting this in a PM to VRC since it's highly likely he will never see it here?
