    I'd like to see a forestry fire lookout tower. Lots of places (Eagle River, Coal Country, and others) where it could be placed. It needs to be fairly tall though.

    As I mentioned in a different thread, I'm building in Trainz 2019 a close replica of the BNSF River Subdivision, and that line has plenty of steel moving from Birmingham, AL to points north. These covered coil cars (40'-3" according to BNSF's spec sheet) are present in almost every Memphis, TN to Galesburg, IL train that goes across the rails. Having them in-game would be an absolute treat.













    Other covered (and uncovered) coil car models are fairly common, but this style is the most prevalent.

    Perhaps some more autoracks?

    Any plans to make a jointed version of the new JR track? Simulatortrains tracks were a nice touch, but I haven't seen much from him lately.

    JR does have some nice Bethgons on the DLS, but some weathered variants would be great. Shiny clean coal cars are virtually nonexistent lol

    more autoracks would be nice especially if they were filthy. not too many clean ones out there. there are some on jrs site that are weathered. some dirty bethgons would be nice. lets face it cars get dirty and seriously doubt any get washed often.

    Has anyone considered making electric switch indicators? They are becoming more common on high traffic TWC routes or in areas where a conductor might have to walk 100 cars to reline a mainline switch. My understanding is green indicates normal route while yellow is the diverging route. Red or lunar shows when a train has occupied the "block". (im not sure how this part would be added, maybe have the train trigger it when it enters the switch zone that can be set?)

    I wonder if it's possible to integrate a signal into the switch. That's pretty much what this is in real life if you think about it.

    I found some more information on the DTMF controlled Switch Machines.

    They also are used for derails.

    What about some 70 ton offset wood chip hoppers?

    I wish JR could make the Clight signals have a lunar light for restricting.
