Description
NOTE: Unfortunately, due to limitations of retexturing certain vehicles in this game, some of the logos are mirrored. There is nothing I can do about this at the moment.

Features and Information

  • Introduced: 1856
  • Production ends: 1923
  • Top Speed: 80
  • Lifespan: 30 years

Two paint schemes are included:
  • Grand Trunk 1852 Logo
  • Grand Trunk 1896 Logo

When the Grand Trunk Railway began operating in 1856/1857, it held the record for being the longest railway in the world, beating the American and Canadian transcontinental railways by several years. Many of its first coaches were rather basic, but they got the job done. Some of these coaches were small wooden vestibule coaches with clerestories. They were painted in standard Pullman green. The coaches lasted after the bankruptcy of the Grand Trunk, being used by Canadian National for about another decade or so before being scrapped. Luckily, some of such coaches have been preserved.

That stagecoach comes with the game. It is the second wheeled vehicle you unlock, after the basic wooden wagon that you start with in 1850.

Where can I find that wonderful looking stage coach? I wasn't able to find it here in the workshop.

It is one of three water tower models that was released by model_citizen. Here's the link:

I really don't mind people giving me requests, it always helps for when I don't have any ideas. I was thinking of maybe reskinning model_citizen's caboose into the scheme of the Toronto Railway Museum's restored 1913 TH&B caboose. I'm also thinking of reskinning the GP9 into TH&B colors as those were the most common diesel that they used.

I am not sure if your are interested in requested. It would be great to see someone do something for the Toronto Hamilton and Buffalo Railway. Again thanks for the GTR car.
