GNR Teak Coaches

Description
Teak was a popular coach body in the late 19th and early 20th century, especially on the east coast railways.

One of the key characteristics of these coaches were the large, stylised numbers on the doors designating class, 1st, 2nd and 3rd. The compartments were often lavishly decorated with very comfy chairs in 1st class, and small benches with bare walls for 3rd class.

These lightweight teak bodied designs were ideal for the express trains of the era. Being hauled usually by locomotives called 'Singles', engines that had one large driving wheel, adhesion and acceleration were at a premium, and these coaches were designed for this kind of work.

In this mod, I have included 3 different designs of teak coach, adapted from the Urban Games 6 Wheeled Compartment Carriage. The capacities for the carriages are somewhat accurate, the 6 Wheeled Commuter carriage was usually used on trains from Hull to York, and from the north of London into the capital. Passengers would be crammed 5 or 6 wide on the plain wooden benches inside the carriage in order to get into the city for work.

Also included is a 4 wheeled variant from 1868, a reskin of my Express Passenger Carriage from the 4-2-0 Crampton mod. With a slight stat change, this small coach is ideal for high-speed inter-city travel.

Lastly is the 8 Wheeled Rigid-body Carriage from 1880. These coaches were used right up until the late 1930s, being hauled behind everything from the tiny 'Single' engines to the mighty A class Pacifics.

1868:
4 wheeled Express Passenger Carriage
62mph

1870:
6 wheeled Commuter Passenger Carriage
50mph

Can carry 15

1880:

Light for its size
Can carry 19

1900:
2 Articulated Coaches
100mph

not working (on no windows systems).
2 errors in file res/config/multiple_unit/2_articulated_coach.lua
lines 4 and 5
{ name = "vehicle/Waggon/articulated_coach.mdl", forward = false },
{ name = "vehicle/Waggon/articulated_coach.mdl", forward = true },

the folder is named "vehicle/waggon" not "vehicle/Waggon"

Excellent! I love these coaches ... and I use them in my American game (after tweaking their stats.) Thank you.

It's working! I can load my old save files as well as purchase the coaches in new files. Good job, and thanks for persevering! :)

Another update issued. Please no more errors *crosses fingers*

Ah well done that man! That is exciting, how did you do that? Looking forward to seeing if it solves the issue our ends too. :)

I have finally reproduced the error. Now I can finally fix this for good!

file: vehicle/waggon/composite_coach.mdl
railVehicle/configs/axles: mesh vehicle/waggon/compartment_car/lod_0_w1.msh does not exist.

I can find the latter 'missing' file in the core game files, but I cannot locate 'composite_coach.mdl' I only have the 'composite coach' folder that contains all the .blob and .msh files unless it is referring to that folder (i'm not an expert on this stuff :p )

Tried unsubbing and resubbing, still the same error as soon as I purchase them from the shed. Will look and see if I can find what the error is talking about.

Unsubscribe and then resubscribe to this mod, that will put you on the very latest version. I have gone through a lot of tests but if this is still happening with the newest version I have no idea why it is occurring for you and not for me and others.

You may have gotten unlucky beforehand as there was a small 1 day period where the coaches were broken and it seems a few people have retained that version and it seems to have tainted any save-games it has touched.

I would love this mod to work as intended, as I am fond of these coaches myself. However they are beginning to become more trouble than its worth.

Hmm fair enough. It is odd. I started a new map, and all was running fine until I purchased a teak coach, and the game crashed and closed with that error. Will try a couple of things to see if it works.
