@dwebster73 - I understand what you are saying, and thank you for what you have already accomplished, and what you may also complete in the future.

@TheOneWhoIs - You are very welcome.

Thanks! This is awesome to see. I grew up in Abbotsford on the Fraser river, and these (along with streamliners of the "Canadian" and the "Rocky Mountaineer") were some of my first ever experiences with passenger trains. While I never did ride either of the latter, the WCE was the backbone of many shopping trips to Vancouver or Burnaby. Thanks :)

@jurgen.presec - Glad you like WCE bilevel.

I would like to include the engine to make a complete package, but at present I only do repaints and I can't find a model of the F59-PHI. There is an F59-PH, but as you know, they look very different. As for the MP36PH-3C, the only one I've seen came in the GO commuter pack that came out recently. At some point I need to look into that and see if I can get permission to repaint.

Regarding the grain cars,... I've seen a request for them previously and researched them. Would like to do these, but it needs to be modeled first. If left to me, it could take a very long time.

Thank you kindly, @dwebster73 - This model looks exactly on point. Will you also be adding an EMD F59-PHI (there are five units, numbered 901 - 905), as well as a MotivePower MP36PH-3C (there is only 1, used as backup since 2006)? That would complete my WCE collection.

In the future, I would also like to see some grain cars for Western Canada (ie. Alberta/Saskatchewan/Manitoba Wheat Pool, and also Canada Wheat cars; I do not believe there are any currently in circulation.

In any case, love your work, it's awesome!!!

Adjustments complete. For brief info on what I changed, see Change Notes.

Top 3 things I wish to change:
1. Real car has 4 windows in lower row. In-game model has 5 (as shown).
2. Main logo is very grainy. I need to clean it up.
3. Need to recheck colors. Purple seems off.
