    Animating Pantographs

    Something that has been bugging me for the longest time. When you are building an electric locomotive in Gmax, how to do you animate the pantograph? And how to you make the wheel sets pivot? Come to think of it, how do you animate the doors as well??

          The pantograph should animate itself - I've been dissecting enough files to know that, even though I don't use Gmax (where can I get it?). The doors are usually something with MSTSBin.

            On what Modeling Experience do you base your information on Pantographs animating themselves, and what do you mean by "Dissecting" Files?
