Gondola 1955 Pack 1 - Northeastern USA

Description
This mod adds the following repaints of the generic 1955 Gondola available in Transport Fever.

  • Bessemer & Lake Erie
  • Boston & Maine
  • Central Railroad of New Jersey
  • Delaware & Hudson
  • Delaware, Lackawanna & Western
  • Erie
  • Lehigh Valley
  • Maine Central

This is the first of what I hope to be several gondola packs. This one includes gondolas for northeastern United States railroads.

Features:
  • 3 LODS
  • DDS textures
  • Aging with dirt and rust.
  • Cars as rail assets.

Technical Details:
  • Max Speed: 99 mph (160 kph)
  • Carries: Coal, Grain, Iron Ore, Slag, Stone
  • Capacity: 72
  • Availability: 1955 - (no expiration)
  • Cost: (determined by game)

Notes:
  • This mod adds new vehicles without altering anything in the game.
  • Custom colors and logos have been disabled.

Personal Note:
Typically before I do a repaint, I identify the real-life vehicle on which the 3D model is based, determine when it was in use, by which companies, and what paint schemes were applied during it's life span. However, in this case, I was unable to identify the 3D model's real-life counterpart. As a result, I did something I am loath to do,... I based these repaints on model train cars. To the purists out there, I sincerely appologize. Since I can't identify when (or even if) these railroads used this type of gondola, I used the generic gondola availability dates.

@GDracer15 - Yes, it always seems we have the loco we want, but not the cars, or the other way around. That is one reason I wanted to start this gondola project. We have some good box cars, but few choices for tank cars and gondolas.

By the way, I did just post an Alco HH600 in CNJ livery. I know it's not what you meant, but it's something.

@JPichardo - There are a few repaints I would like to see of vehicles done by other modders. Hopefully the original modder will get around to it. If not, I would consider it, but only with the original modder's approval.

Do you consider repainting locos and rolling stock that other modders have made?
