If you can describe the problem a bit better, especially show us some screenshots of it, you might get better advice.

Sorry for these basic questions, but I don't know how experienced you are at content creation for Trainz.

Can you at least see the mesh in PEV Mesh Viewer?
Are the texture images in a format that Trainz can read (.tga, .bmp, .bmp)?
What are the dimensions of the image files - width and height in pixels?
Do you have a set of .texture.txt files in the same folder as your .im mesh?
Do the contents of those .texture.txt files correspond to the images you are trying to use?

Please answer all my other questions too, otherwise I can't even begin to help you. If you don't understand what the questions mean, say so.
