WOW! Look at that thing lean into the curve...;)

Right after you place your picture link into the post, hit the return key/ENTER once. It'll re-align your wording to make it a little better and easier to read.:)

Don't know about a flat car but I would like to see the Chief flying around a curve.

Have fun,

Rick

There are zillions of 'em. Make sure you tag all four thingys, from 'Pre SP3 Trainz' on up. Most all earlier stuff will work in '06.

Don't limit your searches. You're missing out on a lot of stuff if you do.

There shouldn't be a problem using '04 content in '06 but sometimes there is. It's pretty easily fixed depending on the issue.
You'll have to post the problems(s) for all of us to see so we can fix it for you.

Looks good.:D :)

Just a little advice when taking screenshots.

Hit the F5 button to clear away all the menu's while in driver mode. It makes a much cleaner and a nice screen view.

I also notice you are very ambitous, with a route that large. Go for it but if you strugle we are always here to help you.

Good luck with your projects!:wave:

Cheers,
Adam

Good to see you gave Abi a decent engine to drive - my favourite driver - I generally have to give her some clapped out class 37...

WHAT's wrong with a class 37?:D

They're noisy, clapped out and eat diesel? Abi is a class driver who deserves the best. She may be a little - shall we say - over weight, but she's a tough girl who gets the job done! None of this sitting at a green light reading the paper and drinking tea! And at least she wears the uniform unlike the scruffy oik I've got driving a Canadian imported 66.

Hey Ballastwater, I think you got your flag from the same guy that I got mine:
http://www.zatovisualworks.com/images/auraniaflag.jpg

He lurks about in a backstreet somewhere in Spain selling flags to dodgy countries such as ours.

Best wishes,
Padster

Then I suggest you scrap your clapped out 37's & give her a DELTIC. :D

Well Abi is cleared to drive Deltics, no issue there, but I'd have to give her fifty waggons at least to load it up properly (I tend to run freight trainz), and most layouts can't handle long trains. I see there's a class 25 in CMP, I may try that.

The 66s seems to have bits missing (kuids or whatever they're called), the wheels don't go round, and they look wrong. They do at least have crew, the 37 crew files seem to be missing too.

The scruffy oik (Paul I think his name is) continues to irritate - I have him parked in a shabby 08 shunter in the corner of the yard where I don't have to see him too often. Whoever did the 08 did a good job, it looks very realistic!

The only thing wrong with the 08's is that they are all vacuum equipped, there are no "air brake only" ones.
