Hello everyone!

today i present you the variant version of last weeks locomotive - the Porter 0-4-2-T


This variant features an additional trailing truck, a small tender and a tail light, which makes pulling trains at night easier - even in reverse.

More fire wood can be stored thus allowing greater distances to be travelled. However the base price and maintenance costs will be higher than the basic version.

Stay tuned!

Hello everyone!

Today i present you a new locomotive for 1.5. It's the Porter 0-4-0 steam engine.



It will be one of the cheaper locomotives in the game with relatively low base price and maintenance costs. However it has a small water tank and not much space to store fire wood so the range will be rather limited as well as the tractive effort.



I tried to focus a bit more on the cab details like levers and piping this time.
Some details are still missing but it's nearly completed.

Next up will be the 0-4-2-T variation with advanced stats! ;)

Let me know in the comments below what you think!

Hello everyone,

today i want to present you my lastest model i have created. It's a 1800s style handcar.



This vehicle was used by many railway track workers to travel to their designated site for repair or maintenance jobs. It is a rather simple construction powered only by muscle. On this particular model the frame and even the rims are made out of wood, which were later replaced by steel.

The finished model will also include a usable toolbox which allows players to store and transport various equipment!




Credits:
There are still a lot of drawings and photos for this machine around. I got some of them from the site "railroadhandcar". They have the old factory brochures and even started producing these things again. If you are interested check them out.

Have a nice day!

Hello everyone,

The boiler consumes firewood and water and needs maintenance. Added vehicle stats (can be toggled on/off)

Hello! Just a quick look at the new log loader!

The loader uses rails to move from one car to the next one while lifting logs onto them.

It will also need regular maintenance, water and fuel.
Stay tuned!

the textures were very time consuming but i think they turned out quite well


in the pit


for greater realism the new tracks are now bumpy. also the heightmap has a higher resolution which means the track bed is more detailed


line to the new logging camp + 1 new tree


hope you enjoy!
