    Default Mallet's, Garrat's, Shay's and Heisler's

    Just wondering what OR is thinking about on future proper support for the above locos. In MSTS one has to do much rigging of the ENG files to get even an aproximation of decent performance and the end is NOWHERE near any kind of accuracy.
    There are two separate problems, in the Mallet and Garrat one boiler is supplying two engines both one the one vehicle. In the 3 and 4 truck Shay and the 3 truck Heisler one boiler and engine is driving and using the weight of two separate vehicles, the locomotive and the tender.

    No rush, just wondering,
    Lindsay

    Lindsay,
    We're working on this issue in our new steam physics model.
