I'm wondering if jointed rail has given any thought about doing some roadrailers? The ones out there are very outdated and do not :'( even look good with any of your stuff.

We've thought about it yes, but lack good plans for them as of right now. However I do have access to a Roadrailer on a daily basis that the CR Historical Society owns thru a gracious donation from Triple Crown so maybe one of these days I can fully measure it up and get some good detail pics for a good model of one. Definitely wont be one of those things that gets made yesterday though! The one the CRHS owns is a Mark V type Roadrailer such as the one below.

I think this would be a great thing to be built for Trainz.With this I can run the trains I normally see!

I agree. Although I am not a huge fan of RoadRailers from the point-of-view of a railfan, they serve a major niche, one that has been largely missing from Trainz.

VMD had a selection of "RoadRailer's" but sadly those aren't around anymore.

On one of his RoadRailers you will see that is has a missing kuid that is not on the download station. Simply go into the config file, find that kuid, and delete it. That will fix the problem.

I found a backup link for the old VMD server with downloads, just navigate your way through it
