    Thanks!

    Hey, sorry for the delayed response, admittedly I don't visit the forums terribly often these days.

    I am still actively making content in various forms, which I suppose is something. I haven't touched the SD49 in a hot minute; we took that model off of the Carrabassett Valley roster last year and since then it just hasn't been a priority, though I'd honestly be hard-pressed to say it was ever a particularly high priority to begin with. The model has had a decently significant amount of work done to it since the renders you mentioned back on page 13, though if you were to see it now you'd probably (rightly) think that the model has kinda gone backwards in terms of progress. The reason for this was that I did a test export of the model (I wanna say this was 2019, may have been early 2020, don't remember for sure), and this export showed that the model had some rather considerable scaling issues. For example, since the engine shares the SD50's frame, it should be 71' 2" long at the pulling faces, however, when compared to a SD70M, which comes in at 72' 4", the SD49 was 2-3' longer. The scaling issues on the broad strokes of the engine have largely been corrected now, and during that process I decided to strip a lot of the original detail parts off and rebuild them. I believe the most recent project to that end was the handrails, which are currently about half finished.

    It's one of those things that'll be finished eventually, but for the moment I have no plans for it. Whenever I pick up my A&SE project again is probably when I will start back on the SD49's, since at this point the model is pretty much a one-off for that railroad (alternatively, the CBVR does use SD50's, and if I decide to go and fully model those instead of doing them as skins, the SD49 will probably make an appearance as an offshoot of that). Until then though, I have more pressing projects to work on in terms of models and skin work that will be taking priority as I try and get the roster of the CBVR taken care of. Appreciate the interest though, I didn't think there really was that much interest in that model to start with, never mind having anyone still wondering about it all these years later

    Thank you Southern1581! I have a known interest in wacky and odd locomotives (SD45X anyone?) and wondered if you were gonna do some fun skins with it, like SP, DRGW, BN, UP etc. Since CBVR is fictional, you wont have any rivet counters on your tail about a fictional locomotive!

    I would hope I wouldn't have the rivet counters on me for a unit like that but you never know lol. As far as fantasy skins go, I believe I had planned to do C&NW, UP, and ARR, maybe some D&RGW as well. The SD45X ironically enough is planned, and I'll probably come back to that particular model once I get most of the big number group skins made for the Carrabassett. I'm planning to start with 5740 and then move on to the SP-spec units, though I'd like to find some proper drawings of the units before I go diving in on them

    Awesome! Sounds great. A CNW and D&RGW skin (give it a gyra too) is the icing on the cake.

    First Time using a forum so don't really know how this works, anyway, would anyone be able to send me the Central Of Georgia Northern Pack?, if not then that's perfectly fine.

    Heh, I've got my own RR, the CD&N. If a blank model is released I'm gonna try a CD&N SD49
