View Full Version : Brill Bullets

While looking through some info on the Philadelphia & Western I came across these pictures of a 3DS model of a Brill Bullet. If I can find out who did the thing I'd like to ask them to add it to our library as a working model.

The tram is quite good!

Sorry for digging this up...
All you would need is a cab. We have the sounds from the Brill.

Maybe not: it would require a death-defying number of polys. See http://www.phillytrolley.org/3dbullet.html. -Phil

If I only had the time, I would attempt the Bullets and even add in the Strafford cars. The only problem with making these is the route. These beauties would only look good in their own element, on the old P&W with BANKED curves! Maybe if MSTS2 has the ability to make banked curves, I would attempt to make the cars and the route.
I have rode many trains and traction around the world, and nothing compared to riding the Bullets. The sound they made when accelerating to the old air compressor kicking in is unique in itself. And nothing was like riding a Bullet from 69th St to Norristown on a hot summer day with all the windows open, man did it get breezy :)!! The best is when nobody requested to stop. The train would just fly with everybody bouncing along with the cadence of the jointed rail and serving back and forth from taking the curves at speed. Man I miss them, the current rolling stock just canít come close to providing an enjoyable ride home.
