This is the thread for the development of an New South Wales Rail Set. If you wish to join please voice your opinion. I have uploaded the main table for you to see.
EDIT by Raichase: The railways of Australia are like the different nations in Europe. They are, of their own, independant nature, and although trains may cross the border, each state keeps a pretty strong showing of it's own trains, and only it's own trains. Combined with the difficulties of gauges, AU Set Leader Whitehand, has proposed to make this set a NSWGR set, which is probably the most famous of Australian railways. This would limit the set to NSWGR (New South Wales Government Railways) stock, as well as modern stock divided by private company (Freightcorp -> Pacific National, National Rail, etc).
Once the NSWGR componant is completed, there would then be the potential for "custom grfs" to be made, replacing NSWGR stock with stock from other states. Eg a Victorian Railways grf would replace most of the steamers with Victorian Steamers, ditto for the diesels, electrics, DMU's, EMU's, etc, while leaving the "national" trains the same, such as the National Rail trains. This would allow a common basis of freightcars, and "favorite" trains, but allow the set to be customised by the player from state to state.
Reason being, is that each state has their "favorite" locomotives, which are the same as everyone elses "favorites" from a TTD point of view. For example, the 38-Class of the NSWGR is very similar to the other streamlined express locos of the other states, and it's not fair to exclude every other states "favorite" locomotive simply because the set designers choose the 38.
So please, vote in the new poll and tell the team, so that they can help make the set something the community, and not just Australian members, can enjoy.
Thanks. [/edit by Raichase]
OK, It's official. This set is now the New South Wales rail set. However, feel free to continue voting.
