Supercheese's Eyecandy GRFsContents:Eyecandy Road Vehicles
Here one can find the first of many GRFs I hope to code in the coming months. The Hot Air Balloon grf has already been posted in another thread
and uploaded to BaNaNaS, and since that was a collaborative project, that will (likely) remain separate from the grfs here.
To begin, here is the Eyecandy Road Vehicles grf, currently featuring an Ambulance, Fire Engine, Police Car, Tow Truck, USPS-Style Mail Truck, Garbage Trucks, and a Horse & Rider.

Being eyecandy, they have no purchase or running costs. This means they are fully compatible with TownCars AI
(also available from BaNaNaS). The emergency vehicles have flashing lights and the good old emergency siren that we are used to here in the United States (from what I recall of my stays in the UK, their sirens sound rather different). If you would rather the sirens not blare all the time, fear not, there is a refit option to disable the constant sirens, though they will still play once when the vehicle starts.
[It is still recommended to limit the number of vehicles with sirens enabled on-screen to ~4 or less, or else the sounds tend to compound and get very loud.]

As for AI-built vehicles, there is a parameter to enable the constant sirens (they are disabled by default).
The vehicles' speeds, introduction dates, powers, and other statistics are based on basic research only, so if anyone wants to suggest better numbers, please feel free to do so at any time
Please report any bugs, annoyances, or other criticisms for consideration.
