The delayed NTD releases are up!

Sorry for the delay. I had Trainz issues last weekend, then got a virus over the week. But everything is back up & running. So here are the releases we were going to release on National Train Day.

The BBLs can be found under 'Train Packs'.

I had hoped to get a public Alpha release of my P40 out as well. But due to problems with it, I've postponed it for now.


Bombardier BiLevels now available on DLS

Posted by PerRock (Administrator) at 14 Feb 2014, 18:57. 0 comments

Over the next few weeks I'll be uploading my Bombardier BiLevels to the DLS. The process will be a bit slow as I will be updating the older releases to be more in line with my more recent releases. The first batch are currently being upload and will show up on the DLS in a few days; They are:

  • Go Transit Can-Car BiLevels
  • South Bay Commuter Express BBLs
  • Tri-Rail BBLs

The Metrolink ones (all 3 different types) will probably be next after that, there are some minor adjustments to be made on them.
I've also made some new unreleased ones that will be uploaded around the same time (maybe later today!) They are Montreal's AMT and NCTD's Coaster. When applicable I will also be uploading an F59PHI with matching colors (AMT, Metrolink, etc)

The rest of the BBLs all need some adjustments and will be rolled out when they are complete here is the list in no particular order:

  • Amtrak California (fictional)
  • Amtrak Cascades (fictional)
  • Amtrak Surfliner (fictional)
  • Sounder
  • Rail Runner
  • Frontrunner

Pictures of the new BBLS, as mentioned earlier, there is still some tweaking to do:
