The west coasters will be getting a freeware mega pack. Old Amtrak Geek Zone projects that had to do with the west coast will be continued when I finish the Surfliner Route from Los Angeles Union-Ventura. There will be more information and pics on the route over winter break.

Hi all, if you have been wondering if this died, no it hasnt :), i've been working on trying to get a few of my projects done for release, For this package, i've rebuilt my St Louis Baggage car (formerly a hospital car) and have added a bunch of cool things to the texture aka chipping paint, the welding scars from the door and a few water stains. I have also been working on rebuilding my original CBQ diner as i felt it could be alot more accurate.

Enjoy the pics and more info to come!

This is my rebuilt vermonter baggage car, shes only 4k of polys, roughly 5 of these equals a typical passenger car, i think it looks alot more realistic and flexible from my previous version.

VirtualBeechGrove
December 17th, 2006, 05:30 PM
Now heres a classic car that was most commonly on the very back of the train, it was used as a place for off duty crews to sleep, shower or just hang out, there was also baggage space. On the lake shore limited, the Baggage Dorm was used to handle New York Bound passenger's baggage, where as the full baggage car went to boston.

Heres a screenie, still needs a few vents and underbody equipment, but is fairly done!

These look absoultely awsome. They bring back memories of sitting at Princeton Junction in the early 90's watching E60s pulling the Silver Service trains and the all heritage Broadway Limited. This is the most anticipated release in my book. Keep up the great work. :D:D

I'm pretty sure he has one somewhere, however I don't think its being worked on at the moment. There is interest in such a thing, and probably when all these other cars are finished it will be worked on. :)

PerRock
December 22nd, 2006, 06:06 PM
hey, can i make one request?
Back in the 50's and 60's ATSF had odd looking cars that allowed the train to step up from a single level passenger car to a double level car like a superliner.
do you think you can make any?


there has been one in the talks. please make your request at our forums.

VirtualBeechGrove
December 22nd, 2006, 09:45 PM
i wont work on one of those until my amtrak stuff is done, than im going to do the ATSF El Capitan set. Including Coaches both step up and standard, a lounge and diners, plus Baggage Dorms with the additional roof.

I most likely do somewhere. I'll just need to dig them out of storage. Sure is a shame Amtrak got rid of most of the heritage fleet. Especially the baggage dorms and clocker coaches.

Happy Holidays,

Dude! That's Awsome! although one question, why are the windows solid black? Do the cars have interiors? Are the prototype's like that?

VirtualBeechGrove
February 10th, 2007, 12:26 AM
The windows are 85 percent opaque, they are like that in real life and at night in trainz the light from the interior shines through, just like the prototype would.

And this isn't even the right thread to bump in the first place considering the viewliner is not part of the Heritage Fleet.

Only a select few have them :o and they won't be distributed.

For whatever reason the original creator leaves trainz. And mostly everything he did was never transferred over to anyone to complete so you get infamous vaporware.

Lots of great detailed to the point stuff was made at one point but has never been released. I just do not understand sometimes. The Metro North m1 and m2 were made at once but were never released because the creator left. It is now vaporware. The closest thing looking like an m1 right now is the non overhaul r46 created by Magicland
