    Default North American Stations?

    Took a break from MSTS/TSRE to breath life into a couple of RW projects.

    Somewhat dismayed to see very few US/Canadian style passenger stations (or depots if you wish) have been created for the sim, even after all these years. Checked RWA and couldn't see anything over there either, apart from an interurban flag stop. The DLC or built in routes have mostly named buildings or stations that are constructed as complete units and therefore not much use other than their original purpose.

    If anyone knows of a secret stash of such items, please let me know. And before anyone suggests, "Build it yourself", I can't 3D model for toffee. Reskinning the items in the DLC routes comes into contact with EULA not to mention how you access the art files without being in breach of reverse engineering etc. etc.

    You have just highlighted the value of having a strong community, and not just a vendor, developing content for a game.

    There's a selection of clapboard depots here.

    Thanks SD40, some useful stuff on that site.

    Ain't that the truth, Chris. Both MSTS and Trainz have thriving freeware communities and you can find just about anything you need to go in a route. IMHO, DTG TS never really clicked in that respect, or everything is so scattered it never gets found even on a Google search.
