Yeah, you heard it right. This is for people who have edited trainz shots to model GE's firestorms. You don't need to photoshop it though, look at Jointed Rail's U30Cs they blow fire out of the exhaust. So, post screenshots!

hey where did my post go? it was here yesterday..... anyway

Nice pictures, you think you could thicken the smoke... and make it a darker grey or black? maybe add a bigger "belch" of smoke?:hehe:

I think this would be a really cool feature for trainz to incorperate into the game.....

It's called GIMP2k, not PHOTOSHOP. I'd google it.

It's not even photoshop! GIMP 2, try to edit with it. Not the best, but good enough for me.

personally i dont think trains should be on fire (unless something is wrong or...). this does happen on older GE models at the exhaust because of injectors dumping in too much fuel and it gathering in various places. i think the dash 9s had this problem fairly under control as opposed to the older series. the Evolutions seem to have solved it altogether.

Thanks for te insight. I'll make sure of that for future screenshots. What's coming along at jointed rail?

:cool: Yes, too much fuel back in the old days of mechanically fueled injection did a lot of backfiring..

There seams to be a turbo-design problem that is related to heat...like overheated oil running in the turbo-bearings...the turbo stops turning when it begins to seize up, then it all comes out at once.

GEVO locomotives just simply blow up...

Anyway...

I think this is what you mean...no retouching here...

This is NS37's CSX C30-7 Stealth locomotive...no U30C is there...yet.
The "fire" is a separate kuid that may be assigned to the exhaust stack attachment of any locomotive(according to NS37).

Well I know it's not a screenie, but this blowout beats yours by a long shot:

Looky here! (http://www.trainnet.org/Libraries/Lib019/01_1100.JPG)

Of course I could make a screenshot of a browser window with the piccie in it, but can't be bothered. :hehe:

It's a German BR01 oil fired steamer blowing it's tubes after a hard day's work. :D

:cool: This my friend is a U30C (http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=287951) with the paint scheme God blessed it with, utilizing the greatest crew protection US-American industry can provide, bi-directional single-controller(old GE style), long-hood forward.

I think this one was mixed with other brands & descriptions of motive power previous to this point, reducing it's almost inherent desire to backfire under the most awesome conditions...

I thought God blessed it with the Family Lines paint scheme.:D

Me, I prefer the U30Cs that the Reading had. They looked more like a U28 because they were off of the same style of body since they were among the first U30Cs purchased, and just like the Southern, they were bidirectional.

But it doesn't really matter what scheme it is in, what matters is that the U30C was one of the best locomotives that GE ever produced.

No, I just seem to remember Allen saying he likes the Family Lines paint.

I have a model of some GE in Illinois Central/preICG paint.
The wheels and underbody were gone at the time of purchase, so I can't really determine what model it is, however it is very long.

NS9708, you're pics on the first page with the B40. Flames on B40s are pretty common. Just thought I'd tell you that

Yeah, thanks. That's one of the reasons I started this thread, the old dash 8 spartan cabs seemed always to flare up like that. I haven't seen it around here though. :( IC, I heard about TRS06, tell me how WBE works! :wave:

not too long ago i saw a burnt up Gevo on rrpicturearchives

that may be true, but it want likely related to the problem i was mentioning. excess fuel delivery is more or less a thing of the past on the gevo engine itself. this is not to say that they cannot catch on fire by other means. the flameout i took this thread to be about is a result of excess buildup on the rack or in the exhaust system being ignited.

817TAYLOR, if you read the rest of the thread you would know that he used GIMP2k to edit the screenshots that he took of the trains in Trainz. He did not use an asset on them to make them burn up in Trainz.

CSX ain't the only one with locomotive issues. Train #2743 is a long-distance freight going 40mph up a 2.4% grade.

Look closer at some of the earlier EMD locomotives...


There are spark arresters mounted for a reason.
