<kuid2:64241:21299:1> HO5B RWSX 25001-25270 FCA AFIII textures comes up as faulty. The config file has the thumbnail listed as 'thumb-01.jpg' while the thumbnail file itself is titled tumb.jpg. A quick rename of the thumbnail in the config file from 'thumb-01.jpg' to 'thumb.jpg' solves the problem. I see these RWSX hoppers come thru Dalton on BNSF coal trains, mixed in with HYWX, DETX, and FURX hoppers. Are you planning on making the HYWX and DETX hoppers?

Those aren't the ones that I see coming thru town. The ones I see have a different paint scheme, with red paint where the green paint is. Here's the photographic roster on rrpictures.net, the ones that I see have the number range of 2001-2700: http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/rsList.aspx?id=HYWX&cid=5&Page=1

Here's a video featuring one of the many BNSF coal trains that pass thru town. As you can see, the HYWX on these trains are a little different. They first appear at 0:36.

Here's a more recent video. The video in the post above was from 2019. Unfortunately, the snow day seen in this video was over by 3:30PM. You'll see in the CSX coal train a multitude of GALX hoppers in different paint schemes. Fast forward 30 seconds if you want to skip the intro. The CSX coal train sequence begins at 5:23.

The HYWX hoppers on the site correspond to the prototype paint scheme for the number range covered, as seen in these photos:

However, the darker colored variety does seem to be more common from what I've seen. Railfanned more Georgia Power trains than I can count on the Thayer South Sub in northern Arkansas.

Perhaps instead of whinging about the things you don't have you should be thankful for the 51 (that I know of) Autoflood IIIs that guido73 has produced

http://images.n3vgames.com/trainzportal/mytrainz/470174/screenshots/171204/1000/My-Trainz-Screenshot-Image.jpg

including two one-of-kind railcars,

http://images.n3vgames.com/trainzportal/mytrainz/470174/screenshots/171205/1000/My-Trainz-Screenshot-Image.jpg

and not to mention an additional 10 Trinity Rapid Discharge cars.

Many for free. Just saying... :p

Good question, Johnstown American was the original manufacturer, later renamed Freightcar America. Near as I can tell the original Autofloods were built in the late 70's followed by the Autoflood II and Autoflood III but I haven't found a definitive timeline.

Thanks for your answer.

They look good behind BN SD70macs, so its good to know it prototypical

Based on best available information from new builds tables, Autoflood II were built between 1997 and 2004 from Johnstown America and 2003-2008 from Freightcar America, and Autoflood III between 2000 and 2005 (JA) and between 2004 and 2009 (FA).

Thanks for the reply.

Unfortunately that puts them a little out of my time frame.

somewhat off-topic but someone told me that RRMods is working on an update to the TOFC trailers that used to be on the website. Any news on it?

There is no truth to that, sorry. Eventually when i have time i might re-upload the old ones on our new site but for now there is no new updated mesh in the works.

This is the one-of-a-kind Trinity Industries Poly Flo demonstrator car from 1988 that started the plastics hopper production for Trinity in the late 1980s. The car is very unique as it has two types of plastic pellets gates to showcase to railroads and lessors - YSD Double Groove and Ellcon National Norson pellet gates. The only known photograph is in the book The Legend of Trinity Industries, Inc by Jeffrey L Rodengen (2000).

Reporting marks and number series include:
