Adriana County Heritage Foundation restored Alco S-2 by tagsdm
Included is a repaint of the Rich Chargin (Dogmouse) excellent Alco S-2 into a freelanced Adriana County "as delivered" 1941 livery. Not in regular service, the engine is available for excursion and charter service on the ACR of today. That's the plan, anyway. The latest Adriana County route can be found at this site as "ACR Adriana County by Mark Howarth (Handbrake)".
This is one individual, single number model. Locomotive number is painted on the cab sides. Autonumbering is not used, as this is designed to be a single restored example.
You will need the original Alco S-2 model by Rich Chargin (Dogmouse) installed in order for this repaint to work. It is free and can be found at this site as "Alco S-2 by Rich Chargin (Dogmouse)" Why any railfan worth his weight in clinkers wouldn't have this brilliant model anyway, is a mystery to me.
To install these repaints, extract the ACDX_AlcoS-2.rwp to a convenient location for you (like your desktop) and install using the Package Manager utility located in your Railworks main folder. You should find an "ACDX_S2" folder in ...Assets\Dogmouse\alco_S2\RailVehicles\Diesel\alco_S2 after installing.
Because the model is freeware, and we've been given permission to upload for (free) repaints, no file copying is necessary. Please read the origALCo_S2_Readme for more information.
To use in a scenario, be sure Dogmouse then alco_s2 are checked in the Editor. In the left locomotive flyout you should find one new entry...
Drop one on the rails, place a driver and you're good to go. You can make excursion or demonstration scenarios for railfan days, special events and so on.
Because the ACR has no passenger equippment, the Heritage Foundation has aquired some used lightweight cars from another railroad and has had them refurbished. They are actually simple repaints of the freeware cars by G-Trax. They'll at least give your S-2 something to pull. Only the coach and diner are included at this point. I've made a seperate .rwp for them so you can install them or not at your discretion. The passenger cars use autonumbering.
You will need the G-Trax passenger car pack available at this site for free as "G-TraX 4-Pack Lightweight Passenger Cars" for the lightweight repaints to work.
To install the passenger car repaints, extract the ACDX_ltwt.rwp to a convenient location for you (like your desktop) and install using the Package Manager utility located in your Railworks main folder. You should find an "ACDX_Lightwt" folder in...Assets\G-TraX\Trains\RailVehicles\Passenger after installing.
Because the model is freeware, and we've been given permission to upload for (free) repaints, no file copying is necessary. Please read the GX_Ltwt4pack_RW2-readme.txt for more information.
To use in a scenario, be sure G-TraX then Trains are checked in the Editor. In the left rolling stock flyout you should find two new entries...
Select one or more to build your consist.
All credit for the Alco S-2 model goes to Rich Chargin (Dogmouse). I did only the ACRR repaint repaint.
All credit for the lightweight passenger cars goes to Rick Grout of G-TraX. I did only the ACRR repaint repaint.
And many thanks to my testers this time, JM1261 and NStrains.
Neither I nor the original builders of the model(s) will accept any responsibility for any damage, real or imagined, to your system by using these files. There shouldn't be any, though. Hope you enjoy!
