I decided to give those of you who frequent this forum a head start on the download of this engine. We still need to add the download link to the SLW site..
Have a good night

Thanks for the download, it is a fine looking enigne. I have it with a short consist but was wondering if when V.2 comes out will it couple up closer? Right now I see a space between the engine and the first cars' coupler. Also, any suggestions for a proper looking cabview? Great new horn sound.

Thank's for this great new engine . Everything looks good except the coupler spacing.

Size ( 3.55826m 4.3924m 11.135m )
and the bounding box line in the .sd file with this:
ESD_Bounding_Box ( -1.77813 0.064 -5.557509 1.780131 4.3924 5.557509 )
Let me know if this fixes the problem, and dont forget to backup, backup, backup! :-)

I did make the changes to correct the coupler problem and it did help a lot to bring the couplers closer together when coupling up or standing. I have noticed that it now looks like the couplers are holding by about a knuckle and when accelerating to about 15-20 mph they move apart. I only made the changes as you described but noticed that in the .eng file there are two places that have size, the other being the InertiaTensor. Should that match the 'size'?
Thanks for your help and for a great model.

Ooops, looks like I missed that line. Sorry about it! The InertiaTensor line should be the same as the Size line. This is my first loco project and I'm still learning all the intricacies of the .eng file. My version has these figures and the couplers overlap slightly, and the bounding box is just behind the coupler head.
This is V.2, in case you were wondering why it looked different
Hopefully this change should fix the problem.

For your first project I'd say you have done very good. I will make the added changes, thanks. I also used a SW1200 cabview instead of the default GP38. It's not exactly right with the wrong type of side windows and the twin stacks but it'll do for now.
