I would like to know where are all the coal hopper assets that are required for our coal transporting railroads? I am newbie to Railworks. And I have spent a frustrating last several weeks lurking around every one of the hobby forums that I been able to find and gleaning rolling stock assets from all the download libraries, both freeware and payware. I have yet to find many, if any, coal hoppers or ones reskinned for C&O/CSX or N&W/NS. Even the basic default coal_hopper.bin files are hiding from me. They don't appear to be bundled with TS2013 in the Kuji or RSC asset folders of the latest version of Railworks anyhow. I have box cars and covered hoppers coming out the wazu. Where are the coal hoppers needed to populate long strings of the coal drags in our mountain divisions haul behind MU diesels and heavy steam. The Scenarios that I am collecting so far have losts of missing but necessary assets that leave them impossible to run.
I realize that the payware sites, like Golden Age of Railroading and G-TraX Simulations, are currently shut down while discovered conflicts are being resolved with the new RailWorks_4. Maybe the coal cars are hiding on these sites. I don't have enough personal posts on Elvas Tower forum to qualify for download privileges there yet, so I am stuck playing the canned scenarios that come with the DLC on Steam.
