Might be a refit on an existing one,I suppose.

No there isn't.

They've not really been out that long have they... Not a surprise.

Why don't you brush down the easel and paintbox and have a go yourself ;)

Wait, are you asking for any available Eurostar e320 in OpenTTD? There is already one, in the NewGRF BRTrains.

This whole thread is better served in here.

To what extent does that set duplicate UKRS?
Is it available on Online Content?

BRTrains is available on the Online Content.

As with regards to duplicating UKRS, it current duplicates UKRS in the later years, however, BRTrains is meant to include the colour schemes and all vehicles to ever operate on British Railways. Of course, such a project will take years to complete!

I have now downloaded BRTrains.
However,if memory serves I think this is a company-color-independent file and that can make telling your trains from competitors' trains rather a chore!

...Eurostar?
There's AsiaStar in OpenGFX plus train.
You could decompile it and change the capacity,speed,and name.

AsiaStar basically IS Eurostar. Eurostar also exists in sets like UKRS etc.

The "Eurostar" vehicle dates to original Transport Tycoon and was renamed "AsiaStar" in TT Deluxe (along with a number of other real-world vehicles being given fictitious names).Both the vehicle-renaming feature and the "Original vehicle names" NewGRF offer ways to reverse this renaming.

However,I started this thread in 2014 asking specifically about thenew version of the Eurostar....which is an upgrade on the old one.
The inclusion of the new model in the BRTrains NewGRF answered my question.

I misunderstood the meaning.

The Transport Tycoon (Original) CD I picked up at a Best Buy bargain bin around 1995 actually called it AsiaStar, as well as having a SH 125, T.I.M., Kirby Paul, Ginzu A4 etc... I don't ever recall seeing 'real' names in my or friends versions of TTO, though maybe an earlier pressing or UK region version did.

AsiaStar ≠ Eurostar class 374, which is what we are looking for. The class 374 is not yet in a NewGRF.

I got my Transport Tycoon on floppies and it included Gresley and Stanier engines etc. rather than the made-up names.
So we have one user on this thread saying the Class 374/e320 is in the BRTrains NewGRF and one saying it has no NewGRF yet...My game with BRTrains activated is too early for me to tell!

Soooo,here's a NEW real-world vehicle hitting the rails that I can ask about being included in NewGRF sets...I suppose one of the internationals...
http://www.cnn.com/travel/article/shink ... 00s-japan/

Is the difference between N700S and N700A too trivial to reflect?...it's the same speed but lighter weight and I guess the lower energy use would reduce running costs.

FWIW the last-mentioned IS now in service:

Perhaps the "earthquake-proofness" could be modelled by greater resilience if natural disasters are enabled and one hits it?
