DTM for creating the original GE44Ton-SP - 3D model and base textures. The base GE 44 Tons model is part of the
RailWorks\Assets\DMT\GE44Ton-SP\RailVehicles\Southern Pacific\Engine Package and it is needed for this new add-on
to function properly with Train Simulator. If need be, it may be acquired at Steam under :


QcRail for remaping and repaint

The Columbia Valley Pacific Route Add-On needed a few small switchers to provide flexibility and additional efficiency.  
Aside from yard work, the Ge 44 Tons seemed appropiate to perfom in interchange yard duties - specifically at various industrial
complexes, such as the smelting and foundry Industies at Grand Bend where electric steeplecabs are powerless.
It offers a well detailed cab for operations and, as of this date, it seems to be well adapted to the Twin Peak locomotives
that roam the Columbia Valley.

Since the original Ge 44 Tons shunter is a payware product from DTM, it implies that each version of the CVP switcher be structured
within a unique and seperate file folder to preserve two of the 3d model nomenclature, ie GE 44Ton_SP.GeoPcDx for the engine 3D model and
GE 44Ton_SP_Cab.GeoPcDx for the views within the engine cab.

Now you can proceed with installing the CVP Ge 44Tons engine.

Simple Installation to TS2020: use Train Simulator Utilities and Package Manager to upload to TS2020 the Ge 44 Tons CVP Twin Peaks.rwp file.

Additional steps to complete the installation :

    For the Ge 44 Tons engine to install and function, you need to install the original 3d file from your or any other drive i.e.:
    ..Steam\steamapps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTM\GE44Ton-SP\RailVehicles\Southern Pacific\Engine\GE 44Ton_SP_Cab.GeoPcDx
    ..Steam\steamapps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTM\GE44Ton-CVP\RailVehicles\CVP01\Engine\GE 44Ton_CVP01.GeoPcDx

    *** MAKE SURE you change the file name from GE 44Ton_SP.GeoPcDx to : GE 44Ton_CVP01.GeoPcDx

    Now, a similar attention must be paid to the Cab View files folder. thus, install the original 3d file from ... i.e.:
    ..Steam\steamapps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTM\GE44Ton-SP\RailVehicles\Southern Pacific\CabView\GE 44Ton_SP_Cab.GeoPcDx    
    ..Steam\steamapps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTM\GE44Ton-CVP\RailVehicles\CVP01\CabView\GE 44Ton_CVP_Cab.GeoPcDx

    *** AGAIN, MAKE SURE you change the file name from GE 44Ton_SP_Cab.GeoPcDx to : GE 44Ton_CVP_Cab.GeoPcDx
    Now, you should enjoy your new Ge 44 Tons on the scenic Columbia Valley Canyon.

    Following installation, use the In-game Installer and to insert the Ge 44 Tons switcher into your CVP route using the Scenario Editor;
    Make sure that DTM and GE44Ton-CVP options are checked to activate the Ge-44 Tons locomotive.

    You will find the engine listed as : "GE 44Ton CVP01"

    Note: In the download file folder, a .jpg image should give you a preliminary idea of the switcher's appearance.

1) Each engine is provided as freeware. Please feel free to modify this engine as you see fit for personal use,
   however do not charge for it, under no circumstances! If you use the shape and/or textures, please credit
