    Default Shortlines of Vermont

    Moving this discussion to a new thread...

    The Shortlines of Vermont pack is going to feature equipment from 8 various shortlines around the state, as they appeared in the 1960s and 1970s. Much of the content comes second hand from other area railroads like the Rutland, D&H, B&M, and CV.

    Kicking things off is VTR #6, the Burt Nelson. Formerly a C&O S4, it lived on the Clarendon & Pittsford during its tenure on the VRS. After the C&P retired their 70 ton GE and 44 ton Whitcombs, #6 was the main power for the C&P, supplemented with VTR RS3 #603 when needed.





    And of course, you have to have rear end protection! Both the GMRC and VTR inherited former Rutland 'vans' which served both roads for decades.

    Another graduate of the Central Vermont is LVRC caboose #100. This is actually another photo skin/paint hybrid!

    G'day, great work, I really like these because they have the "I've been there look" well done.
    Regards

    I'm looking forward to all of these Max! Did I ever send you the LVRC 200? Wasn't photo texture though.

    I just realized that some of those cabooses are actually Conn River models we haven't released yet!

    Some VTR 40' boxcars that will be part of this set. I'd like to do a bunch of the 8' door ones as well.

    Adding a patched Rutland box to the mix.

    Any thoughts on including this one in the pack? Taken shortly after her arrival on the BR&W.
