LNWR 'Precedent' and 'Jumbo' 2-4-0

Description
A hardworking class of 2-4-0 express and mixed traffic locos developed for the LNWR in the mid 1870s. These engines were light but powerful, and could turn their wheels to almost any work bar heavy freight movements.

In the 1880s, the class was 'renewed' into the larger 2-4-0 'Jumbo' or 'Improved Precedent' class. These engines are actually new engines, but branded and financed as rebuilds to the old ones. These engines were just as adept as maids of all work as their smaller predecessors, however with larger driving wheels and significant advancements in steam technology, these were some of the fastest locomotives in England in their time. Competeing in the 'Races to the North' in the late 1880s and 1890s, these engines put up service times on the windy Western route that matched, or sometimes trumped, the Stirling 'Singles' on the far flatter and quicker East Coast Mainline.

Jumbo:

Thanks

Yeah the multiple unit thing should not be there, its getting removed, thankfully not many people seem to have encountered the error.

Check back on this mod either this evening or tomorrow for a fixed and updated version.

Yeah, downloading your LSWR X2 fixed it. I think you should link that here as dependency or delete the multiple unit lua altogether. It will help some people which not already subscribed to your LSWR X2 workshop.

I am not aware of any dependency, however I will take a look this evening as I have an update for this mod anyway. If you wish to use this mod for the meantime, you can subscribe to the LSWR X2 engine if you wish.

Thinking about it, I am not sure about this as this is from memory, go into the mod in your workshop folder (\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\446800) and delete the 'Multiple_unit' folder. I can't say this will fix it but if there is a problem its in there (it's where i'd go).

Bear in mind that would be a temporary fix as this mod will receive a small update this evening regardless that will definitely fix your issue.

This mod keeps saying that LSWR_X2.mdl does not exist. So I can't use this. Is there any dependency needed by this?

Well, good luck. your work's really, really good, and it's nice to be able to see some old british engines in action. There's not been much old british (1830's-1920's) content in railway sims, so i really appreciate what your doing keep it up!

I have been working on 3 midland engines for a long time now, they are proving hard to perfect. I have some in a working state at the moment but I am not happy with how the mesh and textures look. These ones you see dotted around in my screenshots are more placeholders for when I finally finished the meshes and textures.

is... is that a midland 0-6-0 in the 4th picture?

Another thumbs up.
