    You can copy a thumbnail tag from another asset and simply put in the dimensions and file name/extension of the pic you wish to set as the thumbnail.

    Before uploading, make sure the license doesn't prohibit it. If you're using a JR loco you already broke the EULA and you could get in some legal trouble for that, with the intellectual copyright policies and such.

    If you want a good GP38-2 model that you are able to upload, look for davesnow's on the DLS. Once you're done, go here: https://forums.auran.com/trainz/show...eeware-Uploads and ask Dave to let you upload it. If he finds it to be good enough quality, he'll let you upload it. Just make sure to put 'permission obtained from davesnow for uploading' in the asset description, I didn't once and I got some backlash.

    Hope all this helps a bit.
