Hey, still love using this set. But do you think it would be possible to add mail to the HST sets and the very high speed trains? I realize the Avenger or the Sizzler with express wagons is fast at 115/125 mph but past that you "could" retrofit less used passenger trains with mail and swap back and forth as needed.

I'm considering it, no promises :)

What would be more preferable?
- Dedicated mail wagon (more likely I'd do this).
- Or refit the pax coaches to hold mail (less likely I'd do this).

First option sounds the best way. Opens up the option of having mixed sets on the HSTs.

Iron Horse 2.36.0 now on Bananas.

Not savegame compatible with Iron Horse releases before 2.32.0.

*Changes*

- added HST Mail Vans for use with Firebird, Blaze and Scorcher HSTs

*Fixes*

- set correct buy menu order for Xerxes

I didn't add mail vans for the very high speed trains (Helm Wind and Brenner), they're a little more complicated due to the way the powered coaches work.
Maybe I'll do them later, maybe not :) There's RL precedent with TGV La Poste, but eh. :twisted:

The Firebird has some pax capacity which can't be refitted to mail. I'm not going to do anything about that. Something to be aware of :)

Hello, i like this set and ive been playing with it for some time now. I have some suggestions for this though, i assume this is reality based set so 1 idea in particular could be interesting while still keeping touch with reality.... Electric-steam engines! I always thought since i was kid, why no-one tried to combine electricity with steam and make power full, nature-friendly engine. Well, they did try. :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqsuBj40zw8 It would be interesting to see this, most likely implemented as eletric engine, but one of very first ones?
