Grain Operations

Unread postby SD40Australia » Wed Jun 07, 2017 7:20 am

I did a cursory search so not to waste people's time, but I couldn't really find anything.

Are there any grain operations in Train Simulator? Loading and unloading?

I think there are some "grain" loader/unloader objects at either/both Shelby and Cut Bank on Marias Pass, but don't quote me.

You can use RWInfo to check quickly enough......

I know there is one at Shelby for sure with the big loop track just east of the station. The problem is finding grain hoppers with animated grain loading and unloading. The only ones I know of are the LO-PS2 hoppers from Golden Age of Railroading. They have animated top hatches!

There are some Norfolk Western (NW) PS2-LO Hopper repaints in the file library too... do a search and you'll find them. They are the only repaints I know of GN's PS2-LO hoppers. I'd have to do some serious searching to see what other hoppers have animation......

Jim Friedland (Friedy)(JBFried) did some invisible (animated) transfer point objects many-many moons ago that included some grain loader and unloaded objects, as well as some covered hoppers (marked Colton Northern Mining Services) to go with them.

Short of that, I don't know how else to help you......
