I stepped in some Schenectady........
« on: December 13, 2011, 02:21:35 PM »
Well,

 I must remember not to take Vicodin and type emails..........   :facepalm1:

 I wanted to let you all know first before I let it out on the Auran board, so here goes:

 As some of you have seen, I have been trying to fashion a reasonable looking ALCO product from an earlier mesh that a old timer in this community passed on to me.

 Whilst in the midst of trying to fumble my way thru it, I ended up having to take some pain meds for my torn thigh muscle.

 After taking them and letting them work, I had an Epiphany....

 I remembered something I had..... I wrote an email to the original Author explaining that Trainz was a bit short on Alco power, thereby cramping my 70/80s railroading vibe.

 I asked permission if I could convert a few of his Alco models.

 I figured I would get told to get stuffed.

 I was wrong.
 
 I received email permission to convert....... ALL of his stuff.

 Here is the list:


RS 11
RS 18
RS 27
RS 32
RS 36

RSC 14

RSD 4
RSD 5
RSD 12
RSD 15
RSD 17

T 6

C 415
C 420
C 424
C 425
C 430
C 628
C 630
C 636

C 630M
M 636
M 640

HR 412
HR 616
M 420

That is the highlights. there might be a few more.... I guess I need to open a Schenectady wing.

See USA pics for an example of how far I have gotten.

Looks like you have a new job, or should I say a career.  Can we expect some SP&S (Spokane Portland & Seattle) equipment?

My thoughts?

 If it existed, lets get it into Trainz.

A nice SP&S C636 and some blue and white GN GP20's pulling freight.... mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
