Train models

I was wondering if it will be possible for somebody to make some phx gauge (80 source units between the two inside edges of the rails) train models…

The interior doesn’t need to be modelled but it is a plus (especially the cabin where the driver sits)

One thing that these trains should have is an empty space where the wheels should be, This is so that players can make their own wheels to put on the trains and allows a bit of flexibility for the different train maps out there.

Any train type will do really, so I’ll post references of a couple of kinds and then you can decide which you want to do, if any.

Feel free to post reference images (please img_thumb them!) of your own trains you want modelled.

Pendolino? Hornby? That flat ended train?

I fucking love you.

I used to know the person who ran the Crewe Heritage Train centre, they have a HUGE train set there, It had about 10-15 tracks running independently and I used to go there with my grandad and run it at weekends.

It was amazing :smiley:

I’ll try and get a picture of their setup.

The place has pretty much closed down now though :frowning:

I’ve also been in the driving seat of this exact one

but you have never been in the driving seat of this one http://www.nicospilt.com/anderen/RvP20090424_DSC00784bb.JPG

Probably shouldn’t say this, but I’ve driven a HST 125 before. :3:

I had help though, in case I did something wrong by accident.

What? Did you honestly think they’d let a 12 year old at the time drive a fucking train of 435 passengers? :3:

I’ve been in an HST 125 too, but it was broken :3

I see. :pseudo:

Oh Gawd, I can see this train thing is taking off. If someone were to help me make them, or make them for me, I’ll add them into my map. Or, I’ll work on them when I’m done the actual mapping part.

VR Pendo model is a bust still (unless my 2nd in command can snag the TRS2006 one). The others…we shall see :v:
