Description
This mod adds Charleston & Western Carolina EMD GP7s to the game. These are repaints of the generic EMD GP9 available in Transport Fever. Two liveries are provided: The original purple scheme as delivered from EMD, and the black scheme applied in 1957.

  • 1950-1957 Purple, silver & yellow scheme.
  • 1957-1959 Black & yellow scheme.

The Charleston & Western Carolina (CWC) was formed in 1896 as the result of the South Carolina legislature forcing the Central of Georgia to give up it's railroad properies in the state. Two railroads, the Port Royal & Augusta Railway (PR&A) and the Port Royal & Western Carolina Railway (PR&WC) were then folded into the newly created Charleston & Western Carolina. In 1897, the Atlantic Coast Line (ACL) gained control of the CWC. However, it wasn't until 1959 that the CWC was fully merged into the ACL.

As you may have noticed, the CWC's paint schemes copied those of their parent company, the Atlantic Coast Line.

Features:
  • DDS textures.
  • 2 LOD levels.
  • Aging with dirt and rust.
  • Multi-unit versions.
  • Asset versions.

Technical Details:
  • Max Speed: 65 mph (105 kph)
  • Power: 1,500 horsepower (1,119 kW)
  • Tractive Effort: 61,500 lbf (274 kN)
  • Availability: (based on era, see above)
  • Cost: (determined by game)

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

Known Issues:
  • The in-cab camera points backwards due to original model being oriented long hood forward.
  • The multi-unit icon shows everthing on 2nd unit backwards, including logos and text. This is because game is using only one icon image and flipping it for the 2nd unit.

Dislaimer:

@Applegate - There is a Burlington Northern GP9 in the workshop, so I'm not eager to do a GP7 version when there are so many other things to do.

As for the others you mention, all are on my list and 3 I have actually started. I have a lot of projects in various stages of completion.

Ever thought about doing Burlington Northern GP7 skins. Including the Northern Pacific. Chicago Burlington & Quincy. Spokane Portland & Seattle. Great Northern and Frisco?

Any USA repaint is good, thanks.

I don't expect very much interest for this one. I did this mod because it is nearly identical to the paint scheme of the Atlantic Coast Line, a repaint that I previously did. Therefore, it wasn't hard to knock this out out. Hopefully someone out there will enjoy this.
