Track Maintenance Vehicles Set
A set of vehicles for OpenTTD to use for track maintenance. We are not going to be adding any features to make these useful (yet), just adding them.

Ok, I think it would be good if OTTD had some track maintenance vehicles (even if they are just for show), so I am going to have a go at making some.
Here are a few pictures I have found on the web.
Most of them seem to be coloured yellow as this one is. An ordinary shunter is used when repairing or building tracks as you can see here - well I am guessing thats why there is a thing that looks like a crane at the back.
Here is another one, just a crane type thing. Yes, its a model.
Here is a vehicle that is used (I guess) just to check the track to see what condition it is in. I saw an Intercity train with a few carriages like this (with a more modern design) at Bristol a few months ago. Yes, this ia a model too.
Anyway as I said I will try and make OTTD versions of these. If you have any suggestions, comments or pictures please post them.
