    Default Train Opperations Window?

    In MSTS Bin, why is it that when you open the Train Opperations Window the icon that represents a diesel is an EMD GP38 or SD40 or SD45 or GP39 placed long hood forward?

    It's more likely to be a British "shunter" and not a North American diesel.

    Really? It doesn't look like any British switching engine that I recognize. I think it looks like an EMD GP38, GP39, SD40, GP40, GP50, SD50, SD45, GP40X, SD45R, GP35, GP39, GP30 or any EMD American or Canadian 4 Axel Road Switcher engine placed long hood forward.

    The standard MSTS diesel engine icon in the trainops window is of US outline. The MSTSbin file changes this to one of European outline.
    Beer is not a matter of life or death, it is much more serious than that.

    So why aren't we arguing that it's an RS-1, 2, or 3, could be a GMD-1, or most Southern units?

    I'd hate to rain on anybody's parade here, but why is this such an issue? I mean, it is working...isn't it?
