Re: 34' Box Repaints

I was inspired. There are now 16 repaints!

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: The Colusa & Lake (36ng) for Trainz

In what spare time I have, I am inching ever closer towards having a Beta of the Colusa & Lake. Here are a few recent screenshots. Colusa-Junction.jpg Mills-Orchard.jpg New-Telegraph-Poles.jpg I have a few streams and other scenery to finish up and I expect to have a Beta ready to test in April. Sta...

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...

FYI: T&T 5 and 6 were Baldwin's standard Olive Green & Aluminum as built.

Re: The Mojave & Panamint Railroad

I can probably photoshop a darker version pretty easy. I'll add it to the todo list!

Re: North Tahoe Narrow Gauge

Togog has done some good work on his locomotives, though the engine specs he uses are miserable. He also had help from yours truly to get the colors right. ;) There is a nice color rendition of the "San Juan" on PacificNG done by David Fletcher. Though it is lacking much of the ornamental red. http:...

Re: The Mojave & Panamint Railroad

I always liked the M&P it had the look and feel of the desert in a small space. Have you tried my ground texture: "Dirt - Beneme, California" <KUID:476027:100090> Beneme is located in the Owens Valley on the SPNG south of Zurich. It should be correct(ish) for the area you're modeling. I have more te...

Re: Consolidate to PacificNG forums?

A good example of standard / narrow gauge crossover would be items like the color cards. This link goes to the color card for SPC coach 39 (now down at Orange Empire Railroad Museum). What this card doesn't outwardly state is that the paint layers starting in 1887 are all standard CP/SP paint. :) ht...

Re: Consolidate to PacificNG forums?

It is absolutely welcome. Most of the PacificNG staff are CP/UP fans, understanding the standard gauge system out west is vital to understanding the narrow gauges themselves. If it hadn't been for games played by the CP and SP, many of the narrow gauge lines in California wouldn't have been built. T...

Re: North Tahoe Narrow Gauge

Mason used blue through the 1850s and into the 1860s. Shortly after Mason built the "Highland Light" in 1867, he was pleased with the appearance and made the scheme more or less the standard for all locomotives they built. There were exceptions of course, some larger railroads began moving to black ...

Re: Consolidate to PacificNG forums?

I am OK with this. We have a lot of lurkers on the PacificNG forum that might have some answers to questions.

Would you want to use the Digital Modeling Forum, or create a "Carson Car Shops" forum alongside it?

Re: Union Pacific Flat Cars

Brakes one a single truck was common in the earlier days.

The bolster design is different from the Kimball cars but more commonly used by other car builders.
Here is an example of a similar design used by the V&T on the restored B&B flat in June Lake, CA.
