Because of my PC failures I couldn't release the update through past week, and I will not be able to post it on next one (I'm departing to the sea for 7 days). The list of planned vehicles was changed due to my abilities and reasonability for the set. In consequence in the next version will have this changelog:
-New liveries for some of E- and F-units (ATSF/NYC/PRR/CPR/CNR);
-Remade graphics for F3, F7, F9(New!), E7, E8, PRR MP54, Alco PA, Alco FA(New!), Metra Bilevel cars/Highliner II and Canada MR-90;
-Added CN Electric Multiple Unit;
-Added Metro-North M8;
-Added Budd Pioneer Zephyr trainset;
-Added EMD FP45;
-Added EMD F40PH;
-Added new named train sets and cars:
CPR/VIA Rail The Canadian + F7 livery + F40PH livery;
NYC Pullman Heavyweight;
ATSF Super Chief Lightweight + F3 livery + F7 livery + Alco PA livery + EMD FP45 livery;
NYC 20th Century Ltd + F7 livery + E8 livery;
And some other fixes, like properties of some railcars.
See You soon (In 1 week +-5 days), check for updates.

Would you add other liveries, like the blue warbonnet or yellowbonnet scheme for ATS&F in the future?

Yes. We already have Warbonnet and Bluebonnet liveries for Alco PA, and there will be same liveries for F3 and F7. Also, there will be Super Chief livery for E8.

Make it configurable, whether or not the player uses Vehicles Never Expire.

I planned to start this set as a passenger-only one, but I see people want the freight stuff too. I will think about it, thanks for a proposal.

Although people may not care one second about my opinion : mine is that it should be two separate sets. Freight railways in North America are far more in number and rolling stock than any passenger railroad. Even by counting metros, tramways and people movers, there are still more kilometers of freight railroad and also still more freight locomotives than passenger locomotives, EMUs, metros, tramways, etc.

And for the reason that a set containing as much details as NAPR (liveries, etc) would contain an unreasonable amount of rolling stock compared to all NA passenger rolling stock, my opinion is that both sets (NAPR and NAFR if it was created) should stay separate.

So again, I'm not Tony Pixel, so that's only my opinion.

I planned and thought about creating a freight set, but there are some not so big problems. I think it will be started, when the North American Passenger Railroads set will be playable and comfortable to play, because there are many issues to train parameters I must fix, and not so many trains for the diversity and good gameplay. NAFR may be started, when as minimum as half of steamers planned in NAPR will be implemented in-game.

All spriteset drawing and coding work, planned for this update, is going to end, and I thought about some things that aren't related to graphics but balance. From the next update, there will be a parameters for increasing/decreasing running costs and (maybe) vehicles' prices.
