View Full Version : My Observation

February 17th, 2012, 05:10 PM
To be honest I really didn't pay much attention until just recently about the rolling stock for Trainz. As good as it is there's one thing that's missing that I don't think anyone notices. There's no FRED(Flashing Rear End Device)!! Now I'm not complaining I just thought it should be brought up to everyone's attention.

No worries I still love Jointed Rail's and RRMODS fantastic freeware rolling stock, locomotives as well as there payware. Oh and I can't leave out World of Trainz. Just a shout-out.

Did you search the DLS before posting ? There's several there.

Don't you have to include it onto the train-car? Because I've downloaded some Road Railers from VMD, obviously no longer there because it's obsolete and they are remodeling and modernizing their equipment. What I mean is have a mesh file of a FRED & attaching it to the rolling stock. Hopefully that'll clear it up.

How did you do that??!! That's neat!!

February 17th, 2012, 06:11 PM
I had a drivable superadaptor, and used it to drive a drivable flag (see it ?):hehe:

And that drove the walker guy, who coupled to the fred, as the fred was not attached to the railcar coupler, but instead it was placed on a complex "U" shaped BNSF Invisatrack-age ... a huge illusion.

Most of the "FREDS" on the DLS ar configured as train cars, or at least bogies, and couple to the rear of the last car of the train.

February 18th, 2012, 01:41 AM
I thought every car had a FRED. Just only the FRED on the last car was active.

February 18th, 2012, 01:48 AM
How else could you see the ones that weren't the last wagon?



February 18th, 2012, 02:38 AM
The Chinese wellcars are all fitted with Freds, the Ortner Hoppers used to have the ability to have them fitted to all hoppers.

February 18th, 2012, 02:15 PM
Oh yeah I just got the Chinese Well Cars. I thought they'd be American when I first looked at them but they're not. Oh well I still like them. I purchased the CONTZ PACK- Standard Edition if anyone was curious.

Check out this asset...

Mill Gondola, 52', WL&G (5700 series),<kuid2:124017:5006:7>

It has an automatic FRED... and works on both ends of the car. Place it in the rear of the consist and
when a loco couples to the consist, the FRED appears.

Well I shall get those FREDS ASAP.

Have you ever seen a real train?

Have you ever seen a real train?

Yes!! Who hasn't??

September 19th, 2012, 01:52 AM
Sorry about the bump but are there any all black ones with no railroad? All I have on the list is BNSF and SJVRR, UP, etc. wouldn't go well with my railroads.

September 19th, 2012, 06:35 AM
Just realized yesterday I didn't have one of these.
