SP Vert-A-Pak Releaced

I finished and released my Ver-a-pak  :dancing:

Southern Pacific and a few other railroads experimented with the remarkable “Vert-a-Pak” auto carrier. At the time a normal tri-level auto carrier could carry only 18 cars about and an articulated one (auto-max) could only hold 22. The Vert-a-Pak could hold 30 cars parked on their nose.
The Vert-a-Pak only operated between 1971 and 1977. It was designed to carry strictly the Chevrolet Vega.  After production of the Vega series was stopped all the cars where scraped.

The loads are animated and you can see the cars drive up on to the panels and fold up in to the train car. I think a first for trainz. Due to how I animated the loads when you load or unload the train cars there will be about 2 or 3 seconds where the car seams to not be loading. Just wait and you will see the cars appear and start driving up in to the train car.

The model requires Slave-driver’s trucks from his ballast hopper packs located >Here<

You can download the model >Here<
