    I know this, yes. But the complete TS is not ready.

    I just saw my first two real NS SD80MACs yesterday on the BNSF Aurora Sub, while at EOLA Yard. They were powering a westbound empty coal train.
    Made me really look forward to seeing your project progress.

    Nice work, and thank you!

    Thank you flanker! Great job on the locos. I particularly like the faded #7206.
    Cheers!

    I also like the faded, less saturated numbers Peter.
    I threw some grime and weathering on them. But, after looking at your SOO bandit pictures, I laughed out loud at my feeble attempts at weathering.


    I'd almost like to hire you full time to weather a couple of hundred locos

    The faded paint is excellent! I agree that too many objects, locos and rolling stock included, are too "White" and "Black" and obscure any of the fine details the artist has put their time into. The low saturation is much better and allows those details to be appreciated.

    I am not near any skill level to do this, but I do appreciate what the various talented people here do.

    @qballbandit, no, not full time, but every day in the last 20 days 2 - 4 hours.



    My wife is already sour.


    And i make skins since 2001, for Trainsim, FS 2004 and Falcon 4.0. Look my Avatar, is a work for Falcon 4.0.

    @Don6218 Everyone who published here at Train Sim a job, has already done a good job because he dares to publish something that he thinks it is good. Even if some people it does not see. But any attempt to make a wiser and one never learns from.

    Is my English course enough?

    Nothing wrong with those Neil, nice job. I've had a couple of goes at NS and haven't done that well. Too little and you can't really see it, too much and it looks unrealistic. I really like what you and flanker have done with them.
    Cheers!
