    Where can I get the ESE 2.0 or the USRA Light Mountain by Train Artisan?

    So basically, I have found some locomotives that I want to add to my MSTS roster. However, these locomotives are however aliased to the ESE's cabview and sound folder. Someone also told me that Train Artisan's USRA Light Mountain has the ESE's Cab and Sound folders. I basically tried to find everywhere for the ESE, then the USRA Light Mountain. Turns out that it isn't here on TrainSim. However, I tried going to Train Artisan's site. What do I get? A redirect virus that goes to Oopatet. Even if I manage to get past that redirect wall, Train Artisan's site has been on sale for a long time with buttons that go somewhere unrelated. So, if anyone has the locomotive, can someone tell me where it is available? I don't want to buy the American Classics CD however.

    TrainArtisan's ESE is a paid product, so you'll have to buy the Classics CD to get that.

    The USRA Mountain... that was a free download on their site. In the License, it states:

    You may freely distribute this software in its full unaltered archived format provided that you do not receive any financial gain from said distribution or use.

    Fortunately, the WaybackMachine has a copy, so I've added it to the File Library as a Remote Link.

    ​Run the installer in Compatibility Mode, and the B&O, IC, and Southern versions should all be available.

    If you like what you see here at Trainsim.com, be it the discussions and knowledge in the forums, items saved in our library or the ongoing development of our TSRE Fork, I hope you'll consider a paid membership to help support keeping the site operating.... Thanks!

      Sad to say, but the site that originally still had this (I think JustTrains?) took it down. Another piece of classic content gone.

      Though since you've added that remote link to the library, think it could be done for the other freeware items they had on the wayback machine?

        Honestly, while the Mountain is fairly unique, the other TA trainsets have been eclipsed by newer models. The VIA set isn't any better than the free BLW/ZT set... and Rick F's latest E7 model (also BLW/ZT) is decades better.

        But if you find others that should be cataloged, send me the Wayback links...

          I get the part with the VIA rail, since both sets are the same thing.

          Maybe the Canadian Pacific holiday train on there would be a good candidate? That thing is old as ever, but the set that would've surpassed it (the SLI version) ain't available anymore.

            Tiger Trains/TMT usually makes their version of the CP Holiday train available around Xmas. That’s a really cool version

              I still have a copy that I paid for, of the American Classics CD and a digital backup, but the thing to remember here, is even if you find a copy, that the whole thing was compiled as 16bit and won't run on anything newer than a Windows XP 32bit version. I have to run windows 98 SE in a VM to run it and then put it on a Virtual Disk to even access the CD anymore.

                That's probably the best version currently out.

                  Don't forget their Halloween trainset, that is only available until tomorrow.

                    Hi jdgewmsjr,
                    May I suggest that you try my Utility22 to unpack the American Classics CD using Win 10?
                    It's available from the library as utility22_v1_0.zip but PLEASE read the instructions!

                    Cheers,
                    Ged

                      If the only issue is you need a cabview and sound, and you know how, you can use a different cabview and sound. Even if you don't know how to change those out, honestly, it's not that hard to do. There are people here and info online that can help you to do that.

                            Here's a link within our file library. You should be able to do a description search on "USRA Mountain" and find it.
