    Cool

    Here is a quick update. I have exported the model from GMAX and it is on its way into MSTS for the first phase of testing.

    I thank you for your concern, the extent of the damage I received was a 50ft+ hickory which fell across my driveway (completely blocking access), the trunk had a 2.5ft diameter. Luckily my driveway is classified as a fire road because it has access to a nearby pond, so we called it in and the town's OEM department came and removed the tree.

    Back to the MSTS, I have made the cab view which just needs a few finishing touches, and I have been working on the sounds intermittently throughout the coding of the engine. I am looking to release the M2's in about a week to two weeks time.

    The M3s were not Japanese. They also did not run on the New Haven Line. BUDD(an AMERICAN company) built them and they served on the Harlem and the Hudson. You sure yo used to work for MNRR?

    Only the M8s are Japanese, made by Kawasaki. The rest are either Budd or Bombardier, I think, or maybe just Budd. I never associated much with MNRR equipment outside of P32ACDMs...

    This is my understanding:
    M1 - Budd
    M2 - Budd
    M3 - Budd
    M4 - Tokyu
    M6 - Morrison Knudsen
    M7 - Bombardier
    M8 - Kawasaki
