    transparency would be controlled in the alpha channel for the skins for each car normally.

    Yes, the dome is an F/A. I have plans to set up the windows just as SLI did just so everyone knows.

    Looks good, although those are all chair cars, no?.... For an officer special, you'd have a couple of sleepers and a dining car or the Portland Rose diner dome... maybe a fuel car or power car. Each of the exec cars has its own generator, but they work better with some HEP when actually being used as a hotel...

    The cars do look like but it would like real cool if we had the 7400 to go with this train.

    You can make it yourself, or just wait patiently...

    Good point about rebuilding the interiors. Not easy. Well not difficult but it sure takes a lot of time to do.

    You have to first alpha out everything in the interior, and only if they can be. Otherwise some shape editing needs to be done and that makes it tough to release to the public. Then you have to make a freight animation for the new prototype interiors. If the car already has a freight animation, well then you might be in trouble. Because then you will have to redo the original freight animation to include the new interior and whatever the original freight animation had. Takes forever to do. trust me. I'm still working on the Streamlines Superliners...been with these on and off since they came out.

    Nah... Releases that need shape editing have been fairly common, I'm sure people have the hang of it by now.
