First of all, thanks for the awesome work, in my opinion the best trainset for general use so far! Just three comments/suggestions:

a) Why are the torpedo-wagons limited to the FIRS-Steeltown set? Why don't allow them as transport for metal in the Extreme or Basic economy? The list of vehicles is already so large, some more don't matter at all and if someone really finds them annoying, he doesn't need to display them.

b) Why is the list of potential cargos for the normal container wagon other than for the express container wagon? In m opinion it would be good the limit the list of potential cargos for the normal ones a bit (e. g. exclude all real bulky goods such as coal or iron ore) but then use the same list for normal and express containers.

c) Although I know that the set is primarily based on British material, is there a chance to add https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iore to the set? That’s heavy metal in the best sense of the word.

And again, thanks a lot!

Hello,

very nice grf! 1 question, Do you plan to add running costs reduction parameter?
I (like many others I think) like to play with the day lenght factor set higher, but the running costs grow very high and using the trains is unsustainable.

Cryo tankers in 1900? Were they even already around at that time? :shock:

Almost certainly not :twisted:

From a 'history of cryogenics' site:
1939 First vacuum-insulated railway tank car built for transport of liquid oxygen
This PDF shows a portable oxygen tank on a road truck around 1900. There's another picture of a tank in a rail box car also in there http://www.cganet.com/wp-content/upload ... ryBook.pdf

But in general use in 1900? I doubt it :twisted:

Just got round to playing some OTTD again...great work on this set. I started in 1860 to get the full range...ran some freight routes and built up my cargodist network for passengers. Good job because by the 1870s my company is losing money and the game is actually challenging! Took £500k off the value of a £1m company over a few years, now lending money like crazy to try to fix it! I have had to up my game and put in ro-ros etc etc. Fun stuff.
