Sorry for the delay in getting the link to the betas. Here is the current version of the repaints: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0pf7gpgqh...

Re: 34' Box Repaints

As promised, here is closer look at the repaints: Atlantic & Pacific #500-599 Unlike AT&SF, the A&P ordered a series of 34' cars with normal sliding doors. AT&SF preferred the Wagner plug door design which was a wooden plug door. I've used a typical mineral brown for this color. AP-500-Series.jpg Ch...

34' Box Repaints

I needed some yard fodder for the Colusa & Lake route that would be suitable for 1890s. I liked the idea of all the 34' box repaints that are in the DLS, but found them to be a little too fanciful for reality. To solve this, I created my own repaints that might be of interest to others. Box-Repaints...

Re: Trainz in the Calico Mountains: Sunrise Canyon/Palm Borate

Norm, All striping would be Aluminum. On a Baldwin spec the second notation in Olive Green & Aluminum would apply to all striping or anything that looks white. If there were multiple stripes on the domes one of them could have been red or another color, but this is a pretty straightforward scheme. A...
