    These locos were really ahead of their time with the amount of detail they had. This was a time in Trainz when most rolling stock were boxes with little detail and very low resolution graphics. Interestingly, an Santa Fe FP45 was one of my first model railroad engines in the late sixties. I think it was made by AHM. It ran very smoothly.

    I came too late when it comes to me purchasing payware and I'm just patiently waiting on N8PHU. However, TUME's FP45 models and Ronin13's BN F45 model did me well since when I had Trainz 12 despite the colors being off or bright, especially in TANE.

    yeah, ran those for as long as I can but they really started to drive me crazy next to the SRS C44s and the JointedRail content. Before I started this thread I was seriously debating on finding users that had the one I wanted and tossing money at them, that’s called complete desperation

    Well, the creator Threeheadedmonkey shows as having TANE registered to him although he hasn't been on the forum since 2014. You could try contacting him and if he would in writing give his permission, I would share what I have on a as is basis. Clearly that is his intent in allowing N8phu to update and release them. Sg1 was also part of VMD although I think he mostly did textures.

    that’s the original creator, Steffen, right? I doubt pming him would get me anywhere but in all technicality, wouldn’t n8phu be like a “new owner”? I know he’s going through tough times right now and I applaud him for even having a will to help this community during his busy life, but would getting it in writing from him be worth a shot? I know he’s not ready to post up his copies of them, so I wouldn’t bug him to rush, but maybe he’d allow a one-time distribution since he’s almost had the units placed in his care?

    You are correct on this.

    Part of the agreement that was made to get these units is that I do the work and distribute them solely thru TEH. Im afraid patience is the keyword here.

    yeah, which I was planning on. I know you are still testing and updating the units, but so long as wreeder has them working in TRS2019 I was seeing if there was any possibility to get in touch with Steffen or you and and offer to pay Steffen if wreeder were to provide the units for me. Unlikely and probably hair-brained stupid, but coming from a player that bought into the game when the good content creators was shutting off, you can understand where I’m coming from. Nevertheless, really excited to see what else TEH has to offer, I’m probably the only person willing to pay for old, outdated content

    thanks for the clarification. N8phu might be right, even if you’re willing to let me have your copies, that might go against the grain of VMD’s wishes for where the content is going, I don’t even think there’s a way to contact either

    Does anyone know where I might be able to get these models, even if they are payware? I'm willing to pay for these beauty's!

    Just be patient because N8PHU is working on them and they'll be freeware. Just do not bother him at all.

    Just a quick update...

    As I am Essential Personnel during the Pandemic, I am still working. In fact, I have been picking up a lot of overtime and currently preparing for 1/2 of my coworkers to retire at the end of the year, which is leading to some interesting times.

    Plans are to include a better cab view for the F45/FP45s, as the F7 cab view just does not do it justice.

    Hopefully things settle down or a cure is found...either way, im a busy bee as of late.
