Description
UPDATED!
This is the heavily updated version of my earlier CNR 2-8-2 Mikado Pack, which includes an additional paint scheme as well as resized numbering on number boards, and fixing the lettering on the 1919 Mikado. The old version has been removed from the workshop, and you will need to subscribe to this one.

Features and Information

  • Introduced: 1919
  • Production ends: 1960
  • Top Speed: 80
  • Tractive Effort: 243.42 kN

Three paint schemes are included:
  • Canadian National w/ 1919 Logo
  • Canadian National w/ 1923 Logo
  • Canadian National w/ 1943 Logo

The Canadian National Railway's Mikados were very unique for railfanners of the time, because even up until their demise in 1960, you could easily tell which ones belonged to the Canadian Northern Railway and the Grand Trunk Railway prior to CN's creation. Canadian National, in a cost-saving effort, simply painted over the old predecessor railways' logos with their own name. In the case of the Canadian Northern, CN simply painted "National" over "Northern", and in the case of the Grand Trunk, the black-and-white "Tilted Wafer" logo was painted over in red and white, bearing the name "Canadian National" instead. In 1943, Canadian National went through a corporate restructuring in an effort to separate its image from that of its predecessors. A new logo was devised for use on passenger locomotives only, a circular logo with a maple leaf inside it. Steam locomotives with the 1923 tilted wafer logo were used in freight service from that point on.

All of these liveries are included in this pack, with the ex-Canadian Northern being introduced in 1919 to reflect it being purchased by the Canadian Government upon its bankruptcy in 1918. The ex-Grand Trunk livery is introduced in 1923, when it went bankrupt and was absorbed into the then-new Canadian National Railway. The third livery is introduced in 1943.

Hello, everyone. First off, I want to sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by the reuploading of this mod to the workshop. This was a terrible mistake on my part, but unfortunately I cannot undo the old mod's removal. I will not make this mistake again in the future. :coach:

Save game for the current series once again brought back from the brink...

Good tutorial from SoftwareSimian below on how to (hopefully) resolve the problem.

Love your work Chief W, but please don't remove mods from the workshop, you can replace your work easily by updating instead.

Though this likely won't help some of you, here's how I restored the missing mod. I backup my Workshop mods to a separate partition. Went there. Weeded through all 190+ mods until finding one whose Workshop Image matched the removed mod. Copied it to the folder where we place non Workshop TpF mods. Launched TpF. Clicked load. Installed the mod from its new location. Voila. My save launched successfully. Switched two train lines I knew for sure used Canadian Mikados to other steam locomotives to be safe. That's all there was to it in my case. Only real hastle was figuring out which back up mod I needed. In other words, it pays to back up your mods. =) Leastwise in this case it did.

@Ian.C: The deleted mod should be there (under [+] when loading), but you need to sort by name to find it at the top of the list. If you search for it, you won't find it.

Unfortunately when I press +, its not there tu disable it. Its only in the - version of the list.

How do we stress to mod authors to never ever delete their mods? It seems to be a recurrent problem recently.
If you have a new version of the mod, update it! Don't delete it and make a new one. That just breaks everything for everyone for no reason.

How to unbreak your savegame if you have locomotives from the old now-deleted version of the mod:
1) subscribe to this new version of the mod
2) from the main game menu, load game, click the [+] to select mods to load with. First sort by name and you will find the old version of the mod at the top with red !! saying mod not found, disable the old version of the mod. Then in search box type "mik" and enable this new version of the mod. Load your savegame
3) Once in the game, go through all your trains and replace any modified Mikados with the vanilla Mikado (set the replacement train, click Replace Now, wait till the train gets to the next station for replacement).
4) When all the modified Mikados have been replaced with vanilla Mikados, save your game, quit to main menu.
5) From main menu, load game, click [+] to select mods, type "mik" in search to find this mod, disable it. Load your game.
6) Your game should now load without problem.
