    Not enough business for a solid train. So intermodal added to the point of a feed train heading back east. Hottest empty train on the railroad.

          So let me get this straight. You want to fly on a magic carpet, to see the king of the potato people... and plead with him for your freedom, and you're telling me you're completely sane?

                          Great screenshots of the new bethgon hoppers. I'd like to see more, if they're available!

                            They're the newest trainsimulations release. https://www.trainsimulations.net/bethgons-vol1

                              Used shape file manager to reverse the direction of the hoppers. They all were built with the B end of the car (containing the brakewheel) leading, and the rotary end trailing. In order to set up a rotary dumping train, the entire consist of hoppers needs to be flipped in the consist editor. To end the need to constantly flip *all* the cars in a consist to get the rotary end leading (rotary end needs to be attached to loco coupler), I just went in to the shape file manager and reversed the direction of the bethgon shape.






                              Also, there were a few skins from late-MSTS era SLI releases where the bethgon hopper car lacked the top rim of the car. I assume that was to lower the poly count to accommodate MSTS. The BNSF bethgons from Scenic 2, and the UP bethgons from UP on Green River pack come to mind as lacking the top rim of the car. Maybe even a CN or CP set that came with ES44s. I grabbed those textures and applied them to some Mullan bethgon shapes in order to add some not-yet-repeated textures to the OR grade equipment party.
