Just a "thank you" note to Harold for the excellent work that he's been doing on loco and wagon liveries for Canadian Pacific.
I've long been a fan of CPR....I held onto a dream for ages about travelling from Vancouver across to Montreal by Canadian Pacific, but that'll never happen now.
So thanks, Harold, for allowing me to customize my "North American zone of operations" in MTS and re-equip my entire diesel fleet with CPR units and to have them haul CPR-liveried consists.
Once somebody models an F unit, I hope that you'll suitably dress that, as well, so don't stop now!! :)
Well I suppose you all know by now that I'm a 3rd generation CP man with 29 years service.. My son makes it 4 generations..
So thats why the CP stuff.. Glad you appreciate it, and thanks for the kind words, it really makes the effort of having to argue with MSTS's loony texture maps worth it.. Marc from 3dTrains is working on F7's, and I will make sure we get an ABA set run up to mathc the restored f7's.. FYI, I'm almost done skiining some of the OE380 cars to look like pseudo CP heavyweights.. NOw if I could get a Hudson, I'd skin it to match 2816, which should be running this summer.. Last I heard the
superheaters were being done...
Cheers and thanks..
Also wish to thank you Harold. Live on Vancouver Island. We had CPR here for many years with some of our own special locomotive paint scemes. Hopefully we will see a Canadian route to run your great cars and locies on. Thanks again.

Harold, I understand that someone is creating a NYC-version of a Hudson, but it's the streamlined one and obviously won't be suitable as far as appearance goes.
But never mind...it's early days yet and more steam is bound to be created.
Incidentally, you've answered my question regarding the relationship between yourself and the "other" Clitheroe :)
Thanks again for your creations. For an Aussie who fell in love with the CPR through books and magazines back in the 1960's, this is a delightful way to see those images come to life. I look forward to the debut of the passenger fleet.

I must add my appreciation and thanks to Harold also. His work is steeped in history and the magic of N. American RRs. Bravo!
