Coming down to the final updates for the K-36's. Here's a couple shots of her in Durango.

Here's some of the new cab details.

I'll be leaving on vacation for a few weeks. I plan on finishing her up and releasing by the end of July. The other K-36's will follow after that.

Regards,
Todd

Wow! Many years of waiting have finally paid off! The K-36 looks stunning, and I'm sure they'll run great!

And since I've just gotten back from C&TS, where it's all K-36s, this just makes getting this so much better.

Thanks for doing the K-36s! So, how are the others doing? :D

Wow! Looks beautiful Todd! Great to see you posting again.;)
This will be and has been well worth the wait, and it'll be a nice treat to have her to download after my vacation to Chama. :D

Wonderful Job Todd,

WOW! That came out nice! Now comes the hard part. Indivdualizing each engine...:confused: :D ie: Whistle's, bells, and other little nitpicks. (BTW, if you need more whistle recordings, I've got a few more. Both from The D&SNG and C&TS!)

So I have to ask, do these engines have the same optional snowplow as did the K-27s?

Lookin good there Prowler! I rode behind #482 on the Durango and Silverton and am looking foward to this.

Great work Prowler, I have all the old K-36's, and look forward to the update so they don't distort in TRS06 or TC when I get it.........:):):)

Prowler901
June 27th, 2007, 05:51 PM
Thanks again folks. :)

These will have the optional snow plow attachments like the K-27's do. I'm also planning on doing both D&S and C&T liveries based on their current rosters. I'll try to capture as many individual differences as I can, but those will be based mainly on their appearance in the 1940's.

My next project will be the K-28's. It's time to start a new loco project and take a break from updating old ones :)

Regards,
Todd

Oh thank you Todd, yes, I have always had a thing for those cross compound airpumps hung on the smoke box front, especially after riding behind a couple of them when I was a kid..........:):):)

Prowler,

Sorry to ask, but when you make the K-28's, do you plan on making #473 in her Bumblebee scheme with the diamond stack?

ummm, please, If you do, make one with the diamond *coughcrapcough*, sorry, had a cough, diamond stack and bumble bee, and one without the diamond stack with the bee?:mop:

Oh no! Not the fake diamond stacks, that was really just for a movie that was being made in the 50's, no no no, can't have that!!!!!!!!!!!:D :D :D

This is entirely Todd's decision of what he does. I have a feeling he might have #473 done in both versions Bumble Bee or no Bumble Bee. And who knows, maybe he could set up the smokestacks in a similar matter to that of the snowplows, where you load which stack you like as a product to satisfy all of you. :p

In any case, I'm sure everyone will be happy with what Todd decides to do. :)

Thats what I've been meaning to ask, where does one get the snowplows? I've looked all over his site, no snow plows though!!!!!!!!!:( :eek: :confused:

You have to click on the loco in survayor using the ?,and then take off the cow catcher or what ever than add,a "load" and look for the small snowplow,click ok,then add the snowplow by clicking the icon,and type 1 and then ok and then it should be on the loco.

July 1st, 2007, 01:45 PM
Ummm,

Well, some of us like it. Well from the looks of it, just me, but I'd like both. I personally think the Bumblebee scheme is nice, but then again, black is nice too.

I'm pretty sure I asked if he would make 2 versions. I regular and one Bumblebee. But of course, it is his project. It would be nice though.

Oh! I thought it was a download somewhere on Prowlers site, something like some type of rolling stock, but after thinking about that, I guess that wouldn't work, thanks for the info..........:):):)

For some unknown reason, those fake diamond stacks stayed on all of the K28's until the Rio Grande sold the Silverton line in 1980.

After playing around with gmax myself, and my abilities are very limited, these guys who can make steam engines, or freight cars, or anything else in gmax, I hold them in high regard, so I try not to request too much, I'm great at downloading these things, I ain't so great at makin' em............:D:D:D

The diamond stacks stayed on the K-28's because the railroad had wanted the current D&S to seem like an "old time" railroad, even though the K-28's and soon to follow K-36's were fairly modern narrow gauge locomotives. I personally like them without the diamond stacks, but it would be a nice edition. Back on topic, excellent job Todd. Keep up your incredible work! :D

Yes,

I see what you mean betsy662. I think this and some suggestions and a new Daylight in the planning in a different forum have been suggestion (as I like to put it) recently.

But yes, I would like a Bumblebee 473, if its possible.

I don't want to start a war here, but apparantly you guys aren't getting the fact that it's these kinds of posts that make Todd not really want to work on the stuff or his own enjoyment (and because he's a nice guy) and for US! You just have to give him some real patience, many things get in the way of Trainz as it isn't anyone's first priority, such as LIFE. I understand we are all very anxious (including me) for his upcoming projects, but we have to be patient; it's Todd's decision on when he does things, and what he works on as Trainz is just a hobby.

That's my 2 cents,
Dietrich :)

yes, as a content creator, being asked a billion times "is it done yet, is it done yet, is it done yet, is it done yet, is it done yet, is it done yet, is it done yet, is it done yet" and so on makes me want to stay away from the forum and working on projects

the less you ask, the sooner it will be done

My apologies ladies and gents. But, currently I'm in-between homes. I don't have my computer. I'm not sure when I'll be able to set up my PC again. It sucks because I've only got about 5 things to finish on it. :(

Well I believe that having a home is kinda needed before finishing the model.
We will be waiting patiently.
