Aerospatiale Alouette
This small and maneuverable helicopter can be used to transport people from one heliport to the next. It goes without saying that helicopters are not suitable for high passenger traffic. However, the use of these vehicles can turn out to be quite profitable with a small number of passengers and nature's obstacles that are expensive to overcome by traditional means of transport.
And even if it doesn't – why, a successful hauler can afford a little prestige object every now and then for the sheer fun of it, can't he?!

Up where I live (small town) we have 1 or 2 helicopters like that, and they only carry 4 passangers. And you sit uncomfortable. :roll:

FS E626
The electric locomotive that this model has been based on has left its mark on the appearance of the Italian national railway for many years.
Thanks to its considerable tractive power, we are sure that it'll attract many fans in the game as well.

Rail car CWRM 80
In principle, this is a bus on tracks. Take a conventional bus, remove its wheels, put it on a railroad chassis, adjust the engine-transmission assembly and the steering system a bit – and hey presto, you've got a rail car! Its original looks and reasonable purchase cost make this vehicle hugely popular.

Let me guess: somewhere in the Latin-American region. I think you'll be able to find a fair deal of images on the Internet (look for Railbus or such).

Opel Blitz

One of the best-known trucks of the 20th century in large parts of Europe. This truck was renowned for its high reliability and - for the time - considerable efficiency. Small wonder, then, that this vehicle could be found in a great number of motor pools. Some experts say that this was the first really modern truck.

Baldwin 4-6-0 Ten Wheeler

Image
(Click To Zoom)

The 4-4-0 American was just about omnipresent in the American railroad scene in the mid 1900s. Thanks to its universal applicability, this locomotive was so successful that it didn't have any real successors for a very long time. The 4-6-0 Ten Wheeler was basically very similar in its design, but had larger power reserves. With the introduction of this type of locomotive, wood as a fuel was replaced more and more by coal or heavy oil.

Fairchild C82

Image
(Click To Zoom)

This airplane was mainly used to transport materials and troops. The reason why we decided to make this plane available to TransportGiants is its unusual shape and the fact that it was also used by civil air carriers for airfreighting their goods.

Heisler 2-truck

Image

This time, we'd like to introduce a locomotive that was rarely found in Europe. In the USA around the year 1900, however, this model was extremely popular. It is equipped with an unusual transmission type. A driveshaft is connected with the wheels via gears. This is why these locos are also called geared locomotives.
This vehicle was mainly used for moving timber. They could also frequently be found on narrow-gauge tracks.

Oil tanker

Image

It is well known that oil is often transported over long distances. The development of the oil tanker has revolutionized the transportation of incredible quantities of crude oil by water. Often unfortunately to the detriment of the environment but we assume that you will always maintain your oil tankers up to the latest technical standards as a responsible entrepreneur.


I think they've worked on the oil business :wink:
When can we see this lovely ship in action :shock:

Ships on screenshots will come a bit later.
The very simple reason: We don't have finished waves, and we don't want to show something that's not finished.
