I just send a mail to NS and the Spoorwegmuseum for some information about passenger coach liveries and the locs which dragged them. I'll keep you posted when more info is available.
And what about the National Model Railway Museum in Sneek?
Purno, those trains look great, but I notice a livery change between the two non-RegioRunners on the picture... Is this coded this way, or is there a wrong train on the lower right track?
A 12-car RegioRunner will automatically consist of 2 MUs of 6 coaches. All others have 3 or 4 coaches per MU (due to missing sprites). The other trains are Mat'54's. After a specific date they'll randomly choose between the stoptrein and intercity livery.
I just wonder, an ACTS loc in your latest screenie pulling passenger coaches (most right platform)... I thought those locs were only used for non-pax transport...
After a specific date the NS 1200 will turn in ACTS livery as nowadays that's the livery it's been used for. It still can pull passenger coaches then, simply because I do not know how to prevent that. (I even don't know wether I want to prevent that at all or not).
Also IMO the Koploper looks kinda very blue to me.
That's probably because it's an Wrd, not a Koploper.
Further, I just can't wait to help you guys along with the coding (since GRFMaker runs clean of errors for the coding part, sprite selection keeps bugging) or to play with the Full Set.
ATM I'm better off coding alone, since having multiple coders working on the same GRF makes things a bit messy.
In reverse order:
The blue looks bluer in the snow than it does in the grass. On grass it looks quite ok to me - shouldn't be any darker or it won't stand out.
What makes you think the locomotive is ACTS? I think it's just a rather old locomotive (1200?)
The 1200 also had a darkblue livery from the NS. Besides, are you guys sure you don't confuse the engine with the NS 1000?
The two non-Regiorunners have different liveries - the one top left is either a Koploper which looks very strange or a Mat '54 in IC livery, with the one on the right a '54 or '64 in local train livery.
Those are both Mat'54s, one 4 car consist in intercity livery, and one 2+2 car consist in local livery.
