    Default Flatcars with modern miltary equipment?

    Hi All,

    I'm new to the forums and I don't know if this has been asked before. If it has been asked before then my apologies. From some of the replies I have seen when a newbie ask redundat questions I ask that you not try to snap my head off please.

    I saw a Military train a couple of months back when I went through Vickburg, MS that was heading east toward Monroe, LA. I thought it would be nice to be able to build a modern day miltary train. I have seen a few military items in the library and enjoy those quite a bit. Only I can't seem to find any flat cars with modern day miltary equipment (ie..modern tanks, rocket carriers, and various other modern day military trucks). I don't have the expertise or software to create models like this so if someone could tell me were I could find them I would apreciate it. Thanks:)

    Dave,

    There is one piece fitting what you describe in the FL already. Search under TTX. Once you search, this should be one of your 5 results:



    Hope this helps

    Thanks Thomas.:) I already have this one and I enjoy it very much. More than anything I'm looking for some modern tanks and military transport trucks on flats.

    I would like to see some M-48 tanks to do some activities using F-7's over ATSF tracks. i took some screen shots from the Pentrex Dvd ATSF across Arizona where several military cars were at the back of a pig train. There were only water carriers and APC's on the train. Any one wanting the shots I will be glad to send them when I get back home in a couple of days.

    I have not tried it, but it should be possible to take a military model that has been exported as a .s and add it to a flatcar using FreightAnim in the wag file.

    I noticed that BNSF's new railfan security program specifically includes in their guidelines: "Do not take photographs of military trains and equipment". OK, since I think their program is good idea and good for railfan relations, I'll go along with that, but it seems a bit pointless. I guess there could be some super-secret weapons riding uncovered on open load flat-cars.
