Good Morning,
first of all a warm welcome to the forum. :D

I wrote a tutorial (English and German) on how to convert vehicles from MSTS to Locomotion.

I have also converted more than 10.000 vehicles.
Perhaps the one you are looking for is already there?
If not, I wish you lots of fun and luck. You can always ask if something is unclear. :wink:
