    I love watching some of the works in progress. One of my favorite routes set in the 70's has an auto plant, and these will be perfect.

    A 1968 television ad for 1969 Plymouths (and Penn Central, too, I suppose)

    Oh Man, I love that video, and I apologize for taking over the thread with progress shots. I took it as a challenge to make a late 1960s autorack when I saw the image in wish list items.

    One piece of rollingstock that I would like to see, in a new design, is the type steel coil cars used by MBKX. Seeing quite a few of these over the last year or so, on various outings.

    Isn't that just an NSC Type 5 with a different cover than the standard rounded one?

    This is a transverse-mounted-coil car with 10 individual troughs for loading various sizes of steel coils. These cars also can accommodate 84-foot coils on each end, in addition to smaller coils at the same time.

    Honestly, Grenbriar has docs on it. Should be do-able.

    Aren't Newer NS( don't think The Gray Ones Count, only Re-Painted*) & CSXT Black Ones those too( along with GATX Blue )? CSXT has also sold some in YN-3 to NS, other Class1s, & Shortlines too( but, not same Class/Model ).

    From the MBKX site:
    This transverse coil gondola is a specialty coil car featuring 10 individual troughs for loading various sizes of steel coils in the same car. These cars also can accommodate 84-foot coils on each end, in addition to smaller coils at the same time. These cars are equipped with steel covers to protect the coils from weather damage.

    Specifications
    Length: 58 feet, 9 inches
    Gross Rail Load: 286,000 pounds
    Load Limit: 220,000 pounds

    In reply to Curt C,

    In Becker, MN, along the BNSF mainline is a spur that runs about a mile or so east from the entrance to Northern States Power and the newly-installed interlocking that goes to Northern Metals Recycling. There is a scrap metal plant next door that makes steel coils and loads them into coil cars. About a hundred of them are sitting in the spur near Becker as I went along US-10 today. BN, BNSF, LW, NOKL, and other various roads. My apologies for not getting photos

    Cool stuff.

    So... it looks like it's ready for people to look at in ORTS. Alpha-release. semi-functional... no loads yet.

    At least the couplers seem joined correctly.



    Be sure to check out extra details here --> http://railsimstuff.com/blog.html ...and how you can get it to test it yourself...

    Nice racks Pete. I designed a open rack for Railworks a couple of years ago. It's a empty version. At the time I didn't know how to add a load separate from the car. I now know how to do that and I need to go back and design one with a load. The one I did is for the D&RGW.
