    Thanks Paul, your tutorial got me as far as this https://www.dropbox.com/s/d3ljp4orgc...eview.png?dl=0 (sorry can't get the pic insert to work with dropbox)

    As soon as I select more meshes then the preview just gives me the grey slate with yellow grid lines without any content.

    The reason why I am trying FBX with my Blender model is because it seems to be bringing materials across and I cannot get UV unwrapping to work. FBX seems so much simpler, I just cannot get past this blocker. Any advice?

    Perhaps it might be better to ask your questions in the Content Creators forum rather than this thread. You should get more help there. Currently, I'm a very long way from home so my contributions will be limited for a week or so.

    Anyway, a TTTE loco is mostly plain colours (blue, red and black AFAIK) so onetex materials should work well.

    A loco consists of (usually) three separate assets: the loco body, the bogie, and the interior. Don't think I've ever seen a TTTE interior so I suggest using using the Auran PB15 interior.

    The loco body asset should be exported as one FBX file. That export can have multiple meshes. The image you provided seems to be the boiler and foot plates only.

    The bogie asset, for Thomas, is probably only two wheel sets. Each wheel set could be one set of wheels but repeated as bog0 and bog1.

    If you prepared to wait a week or so, I can provide much more help directly via e-mail. If that appeals then PM me and we can exchange e-mail addresses.

    Paul
