i would interested in seeing a trainz layout of SPSF and youve even got some engines for it. if you do a good job you might be able to convince me to make some SPSF SD40-2's, ive always liked the scheme:)

Why don't you work on YOUR OWN route instead of always saying oh I can't wait to try it and all that other stuff you always have to say...and now you say "oh mine now won't be done till 2007" work on yours and zip the lip or more like fingers

I agree.. sort of. You should really contribute to the community if you expect something in return.. Yeah.

That loco looks cool! I'm sure if you did a reskin, it would look cool, too. :D

WCL to make the process a bit easier on me i have gotten some yards of the DLS and merging them in the route so i dont have to go through the annoying task of putting together a yard. if that sounds like a good idea to you.

Yeah, the Kodachromes rock! Is there any still out there? It would be cool to see a skin of this on SPORBUST's Tunnel Motors. -Chris

Ya, ive been wanting to to make some but doesnt really go with any of my routes so cant find the time, mabye you should make a Santa Fe or SP route set in the 80s....
I think there are a few left, i know a few SF C30-7's survived the merger in SPSF and there are some leasers left in it i think.

Anyway, about the paint, looks weird to me, course that might just be because its a badly done MS Paint thing

dont take that offensivly please, thats what it it.

If you want some reskins, i can do that style paint on just about any loco you want, dosent look all to hard a shcheme to do, course if there is an ATSF warbonet for the loco already....that just makes it easier to change :D

like my BNSF Dash8W repaint

Checkout the blue and yellow ES44DC concept at http://www.tower55products.com. That would have been cool to see even before the superfleet colors. is it possible someone could reskin something like that? Sorry i couldnt post a screenshot, i'm still kinda new at this.:):D
