Description
This modification adds the Canadian National Baggage Car to the game.

These baggage cars were built by Canadian Car & Foundry. They were used on passenger trains in Canada between Toronto, Halifax and Vancouver. During the Second World War, baggage cars such as this one carried wing and tail assemblies for aircraft from manufacturing plants in Ontario to Halifax for overseas shipment. Baggage cars such as 8730 were also used on the silk trains in the '20s and '30s.

Vanilla Cargo Types - Livestock, Food, Plastic, Machines, Tools and Goods

Compatible for use as a mail carriage with New Industry 2.54 using my Mail Expansion mod - [not required]

@mymeatballhero I haven't really tackled any US repaints as I've been trying to get some more under-represented eras of Canadian railway companies ingame. I think I've got another repaint or two of the baggage car on the way, I might ask around and see if anyone else was going to tackle the US ones.

Also I lied, the mail mod is ready TODAY :)

awesome!! loving these mods! can you make these baggage ars in different skins, like UP, SP daylight and NYC?
Col0Korn  [author] Jul 23 @ 8:33am 
Yes @mymeatballhero. The issue is that I forgot I modified some of the carriages in new industry to allows boxcars, trucks, and ships to take mail. Also, a mod where the fertilizer is available in 1850 (Potash was a way of fertilizing crops way before modern chemical fertilizers). I hope to release this in a few days so be on the lookout!

hey there! i have the new industry mod, but it still doesn't allow mail. any tips or settings i have to enable?

Thanks for the tip-off, I'll investigate and see if bumping up the speed on these would be realistic ;)

That one is nice, but only has a 180 km/h limit, whereas the loco has a 200 km/h, would be nice to get a speed match. ;)

@aantono Wief Chiggum has a matching passenger wagon available!

More passenger and baggage wagons are on the way as well!

Would it be possible to have a matching passenger wagon?
Col0Korn  [author] Jul 6 @ 9:16am 
Good catch! Perhaps an update to add another skin and correct the availability?

Another great addition to the game! Just for future reference, Canadian National's cars were painted in a standard Pullman Green without any striping prior to 1954, as it is the colors that their predecessors used.

Here's an old passenger car at Toronto in 1956 still in Pullman Green with tilted wafer logos:
