Consolidation WIP - in-game screenshot

I did a test to make sure the model exports properly into Railworks. Keep in mind that the textures are only temporary (I think I'll make the final model look a lot more sooty).


  1. Looking great,

    Curious though, is this version of it here currently a running model.

    Can't wait to see it finished and released to the file library.

  2. No, it's not actually running yet. I just put it in as a scenery object to check how it looks and see if the level of detail had any adverse effect on frame rates (which it doesn't). I'm really looking forward to getting to the stage of animating it ... and driving it!

    The tender is going to be tricky, because I don't have any engineering drawings for it, so it'll have to be done entirely by eye. I'll get as many photos as possible and try to make it as close as I can.

  3. Thanks!

    I just noticed that the cab is a few feet too far back. It should be much closer to the first dome and aligned with the rear of the frame. I'll have to go and check those drawings again!

  4. I've fixed the cab, and also added the foot plate frame.
