The rebuild of the UP caboose is just about done. It's my first full model using the new PBR textures. I've also started work on a route set around the Golden Spike ceremony 149 years ago last May. Follow the progress over at the PacificNG forums. I also (finally!) finished a simple model of a hand cart in three different colors. They should be on the DLS within a day or so.

I've been working on some sample PBR materials for use in some new traincars - the old UP and CP rolling stock first.

The first of the combination car rebuilds is completed and uploaded. I also rebuilt the oranges product with better optimizations and a normal map. Currently, I'm working on some CP / UP rolling stock.

Trainboi has posted some nice V&T cabooses and coaches over at Trainz-Forge under the freeware section.
This year's presentation (the V&T's Reno yard) for the Virginia & Truckee Railroad Historical Society has been posted to the Presentation page. I've uploaded a bunch of stuff from the presentation, including lots of roads, some railroad crossing signs, irrigation ditches, and buildings. I also updated the V&T moguls 10, 13, 14 with the proper frame color.
