Dont expect a fast turn around on this pack..
I have a lot of other packs that take priororities over this pack...
I am taking over this pack from AI for a few reasons, Mostly.. he is busy, I know the American counterparts of the equipment, I have permissions for most of the equipment, and i have most of it done already (some of this stuff is over a year old so it will still have sandbox bugs).
This Pack MAY merge with the Amtrak Pack and become the Amtrak/Via Pack just to cut down on the number of packs I have floating about . (good or bad idea?)
BUT... Yes BUT.. It is canadain.. I dont cross over the border often. so I need help. So I don't waste hours searching rail photos and books, you guys are doing my research for me if You want this pack... i need to know what they run and what dates...
Ok Guys, I have some questions that i need a few answers for....
Engines. what i have done.
LRC-1 - LRC-3 engines, are they all retired at this point? (1981-2002?)
AMD101 / AMD103 (P42's) (same dates as amtrak?)
F40PH's (same dates as amtrak?)
F7A & b (same dates as amtrak?)
E units's (same dates as amtrak?)
Via coaches: .. what are they / did they run? I know they inherited the old CP / CN equpment like amtrak did.
I have streamlined coaches (old pullman.budd style CP cars) in silver and the new blue. (done). (via start tilll they crash and burn? what year did they change to blue?)
tilting LRC cars, coach and first class/lounges. (done) (1981 - forever?)
Do they have Bombardier coaches?
what eles did they have?
CN and VIA: Done
I know they only flew the via rail colors for a very short time. I dont think I'll release those with a 2 year lifespan, I'll probably just release it full life cycle in bolth liveries.
Done.. some already released?
VIA & CN. were there CP?
type 1,2 and 3?
(dates yeah in know i have this in my budd book but anyone want to resresh my memory?)
Before You guys ask For CP Passenger trains and Go... Go will end up in My metro pack if i bother, it is a commuter train.. CP named trains are already in my passenger pack. altho.. I am thinking it might be a better fit in this pack... the rest of my named trains are already in the other pack.
I'll try and update this as the info comes in....
~runs off to watch terrance and phillip for research~
