That's not the cab, that is the roll-on/roll off thingie for vehicles I think! There is a cabin on top, between the two front fans!

TGV

Image

The TGV is probably the best-known high-speed train in Europe. The investment for this up-to-date and fast train may seem a little alarming at first, but with high passenger numbers, this money will probably prove to be well spent in the end.

No animation. :?
Alcohol is not the answer, it just makes you forget the question.

Concorde

(click to zoom)

Who would have thought but a few years ago that this magnificent modern aircraft would already be looked upon with nostalgia? History or not, in TransportGiant hauliers can still employ the prestigious Concorde even in 2004. That is if they are not put off by the horrendous running costs

Oxen

(click to zoom)

Hauliers with heavy loads to transport at the beginning of the game don't necessarily have to use railroads in the early days of their venture. Carts pulled by oxen may well be a better choice particularly for covering short distances

How much horsepower :mrgreen:
Seriously, what's next, in the old days they used dogs to pull carts
On the other hand it hasn't been done before (I think)
Well, back to work, lot's of it in the near future

Thoroughbreds

(click to zoom)

The first locos in the game are anything but fast. This might make a horse and cart using thoroughbreds for passenger transport seem the better alternative.

Boeing 747 Cargo

Image
(click to zoom)

The Boeing 747 is sold in two versions. What you see here is the cargo version. The plane may seem huge, but compared to a train, it has a relatively low capacity.

agree, but I am afraid it will be too big for airports and map

To the attentive observer and regular visitor of our homepage this ship might look somewhat familiar. And they wouldn't be wrong: It has been published before in the oil tanker version.
This time, we show the bulk goods freighter version. It becomes obvious, then, that ships need to be purchased with regard to their intended purpose.

General cargo vessel

In keeping with the building of the week, we are presenting you with another version of the ship make that you are already familiar with. If you want to transport bricks by ship, you need a general cargo vessel.

ÖBB 1040 Transalpin

Image
(no zoom)

This is one of the best-known passenger trains of the 1960's in Austria. It has – for its time – extremely high speeds and luxurious interior features making it extremely popular with travelers.

Mega-sized pantographs, but looks good on the whole.

Goodyear Zeppelin

Where else would you find a train with a design like that but in the United States! No wonder that this passenger train was famed in its time. Even those who usually can't be bothered to take any notice of a train will not be able to resist a double-take here.
