    I d'loaded your jet train and it sounds and runs great........but when I hit the "H" key, I can get the head lights to come on and the lights to flash but when I press it twice for full only the head light comes on but not the ditch lights. thanks

    keep up the great work....

    Turn your graphics sliders all the way up and see if that helps...

    Chuck:
    Just downloaded the jet train. A BEAUTY. Clean crisp lines. I'm a Via rail guy up here and I was just wondering - Why the Via New colors for the head engine and not for the rear? It's a train set isn't it. They should match just like the Amtrak set? I've been on the passanger cars and the newer VIA coaches look more like the one you used for the Amtrak (F5 key). Can We change them around? I don't think VIA would use a flag/logo cloth for a headrest. Also as a suggestion - since there is no pantograph on these engines - why not use the (P key) to open and close the doors on the coaches. Would make a nice added touch when at a station!!
    As for the jet sounds; they could be a little louder on the outside and as u pick up the pace the pitch should change a bit more or be more prnounced.
    Other than the above items; I'm very happy with this new addition. It is very well done. The engines (at least on my monitor) looks very real. Almost like looking at a 3d photo. Much thanks to you and your team. Great job.

    A fellow Canadian of your's (Tim Kent) decision to use one each of the 2 different proposed colour schemes that Bombardier showed us...
    Remember these are from marketing brochures and drawings as only the 1 power car really exists at the moment...

    Again talk to Tim and Bombardier... Creative license....
    And you can mix and match to your personal hearts desire using conbuilder or the MSTS Consist Builder....

    >Would make a nice added touch when at a station!!

    That function only works on electric trains and since the jet train is defined as a "diesel" to MSTS the physics engine does not allow that animation to work...

    > As for the jet sounds; they could be a little louder on the

    I already made them louder than Bombardier has the real ones for creative effect And the pitch difference between partial and full is more than the real ones according to BBD...
    However you can look at the SMS files and play with the "pitch offset" and volume on your copy....

    It is under consideration by Florida, Canada, California and the HSR hub out of Chicago.

    PS I still can't see my engines...has anyone else had this happen? I can see the cab interiors from external view but the shell is missing? What is up with that? All sliders maxed...what about the resolution..I have seen some engines that have used a higher resolution (I think) and have gotten the same result...

    Thanks
