Few things: 1- Is it a buckeye coupling? 2- Is there plans for a SR Bulleid pacific (If someone has link for a bullied pacific mod then pls send it 2 me) 3- There is a prioblem with the P2 and its coupling rods. Can u get onto it pls? 3- Are there plans for any Irish equipment? The only irish vehicle on the workshop is an Aer Lingus A320 reskin. Id really like to see some Irish equipment but if you dont have time to do it, maybe u cud put a modding tutorial on youtube so people like me can makie mods too :D

That's great to know! Darn and I just made it to the 1900s on my most recent US game. Looks like another restart is inevitable.

Keep up the good work!

Wouldn't know how to even if I did! I may look into it if people are willing to do so but I can't guarantee anything as this is something I do in my spare time.

As for USA steam, I have version 2 of the USA Variety Pack in late testing at the moment, with better textures, sound effects and a small handful of new engines.

It doesn't matter because you're the best thing the American steam engine community has right now for this game. I'm actually glad you've jumped back here for another one.

Just wondering, do you accept donations?

I plan to. In all honesty I am spending more time updating my older mods right now, instead of new ones. My LNWR fleet are all being treated to the custom sounds treatment, and the Striling and Caledonian engines have been reworked heavily with new tender meshes and a overhaul of the animations and wheels, along with much smoother texturing.

Regarding the vanilla models, I think the biggest transformation is that the LMS Coronation is entirely made from the Vanilla A3 model. The streamlining itself is technically the boiler cladding, but heavily reworked.

Fun fact: Inside the casing is a full model of the Duchess loco, as originally I had plans for a track-asset where the casing was opened for maintenance, sadly that never came to be.

Thanks for the response, Steve.

I appreciate it and it does satisfy my curiosity. I'd even say that it's more impressive to know that you are able to use the game's resources to create those locos. I do agree with GrizjePilion on this, as you do make a lot and a large variety of engines.

Keep up the good work.

Your locomotives don't always look as accurate to the real thing, but I think you more than offset that by the fact that you make so many of them, and that they're actually useful in-game.
