    That's a great PDF Pete! It also shows that we actually have quite a few obscure Amtrak trains already modelled. Some could do with an update because they were made back when files had to be smaller and detail left out.

    My query about the blue underside comes from this useful site:
    http://www.trainweb.org/amtrakpix/lo...CELACOACH.html

    It's strange but the 2 really good routes included in the default MSTS were MP and the NEC. Some may sneer at that but trust me the UK one and the OE one are laughable by comparison.

    Spent the weekend and today making the set even better. I thought just the repaints wasn't all I could offer. Now they're download ready.

    Here's the new features:
    • New locomotives: Power Car 2020 with crew and 2009 with no crew (the no crew power cars will be designated as tail units)
    • First class interior for those that want to ride the NEC in luxury (image shows here you'll be sitting)
    • New light coding (Active flashing ditch lights & red markers on tail units, xenon yellow color)
    • Reverse consist with 2020 leading (first class first to business class end last)
    • AmtrakConnect and handicap circle labels by the doors, and tiny Acela logo by the door (just like real life Acelas)

    Forgot to mention I changed the seat color on the backrest in the business class. Also the armrest. Still doesn't match, but blends somewhat better.

    Hi Keelen,

    great skins.
    I've redesigned some Horizon Cars and I'm using the Malgun Gothic Font. I think that's better than the Helvetica font.

    I hope, the Community can understand my posts.
