Thread: Where to get the old SLI engine packs?

  1. #1

    Default Where to get the old SLI engine packs?

    Hello guys,

    I went looking through the current TrainSimulations website as I understand they're the new name of the old Streamlines company, but couldn't find their older products. Do they still offer them?

    I'm looking for their engine pack that included the SD-50, I've got some repaints I downloaded but don't have the originals to use them with and can't find them on their site!

    I think you might be out of luck. A lot of the older sets weren't transferred to the new site and for a while you could still purchase them from the old site but I'm not sure it still works. I tried out of curiosity a while ago and was getting errors from the wayback machine when I pressed the check out button.
    Cheers!

    Try this link and see if it works, This is the rebundled SD50 pack (Vol1 and Vol 2)

    That being said, their newest high poly CP SD40-2 set approaches 250 mb in file size. They probably raised their prices to offset the greater bandwidth costs. As more and more high poly downloads are produced, don't be surprised if more and more 'shelf space' in their 'store front' needs to be freed up. Sooner or later, it's going to become a 'you snooze, you lose' situation.

    Bandwidth? Seriously? I mean, it's 2018, not 1998. Business hosting plans are just not that expensive these days, for storage AND bandwidth, even for highest-rates-charged-in-the-world USA ISPs.

    If that's really the reason, which I doubt, then maybe TrainSimulations ought to shop around for a new hosting site!

    That link worked!

    Where did you find that to add to your cart? I'm probably going to want to buy up some more of their stuff in the near future.

    Thank you as well! I thought I had both packs, but it turns out I only had the CR and SBD one.

    Most of what is unavailable from the website today are the single model engine packs. The SD50 combined pack you purchased should have had 12 different SD50s in it.



    https://usd.swreg.org/cgi-bin/s.cgi?...CK&v=0&d=0&q=1

    16 different engines in the combined SD60 pack



    https://usd.swreg.org/cgi-bin/s.cgi?...CK&v=0&d=0&q=1

    18 different engines in the combined GP59/GP60 pack



    https://usd.swreg.org/cgi-bin/s.cgi?...CK&v=0&d=0&q=1

    18 different engines in the combined GP9 pack

    One more straggler is the SP SD70M with Twin-Stack double stack cars trainset. This one seemed to vanish in the rebundling era since there was no other companion SP set at the time to bundle it with.

    And remember that the File Library here contains several early SLI engine packs that were donated by Danny Beck, including SP SD70M 9809.
    Just type Danny Beck in the search box,

    It made sense to combine the separate single loco packs but they didn't stay up long in that format.
    Link worked fine for me today.

    The oldest loco model SLI produced and now even that is gone

    Luckily BLW/ZT have the transition era covered but the withdrawal of these older SLI packs makes many of the reskins in the Library more difficult to implement.
