Yet another transition boxcar for you. This one with the M & NA transitional herald designed from a boxcar photo Andre had. It's a tad newer than the route but not by much.

You'll find it in my forum ready for download, and Train-Sim will have it in a day or so.

Enjoy!

Thanks Jonathan. This one was pretty easy because I had the original Photoshop layered files with elements on separate layers. I also had a .zip package from previous versions to use as a template.

All I had to do was update the FILE_ID.DIZ, Readme, photos, consist, .ace, and change all references to the name in the .s, .sd, and .wag files.

It has aready been uploaded to T-S along with my night/snow textures for the depots. If nothing else, some may be reminded the route exists and several are already at work enhancing it.

Go for it! I put the herald on the left to match Andre's picture. No other reason. wink.gif

Can't help you with the herald. Don't have or use PSP. many others do.

Sorry Jonathan, yes. It's a professional tool. PSP is a worthy substitute for hobbyists but it lacks a plethora of options and 3rd party plug-ins desirable and required when the going gets tough and time is money.

I use it for much more than repainting trains and planes and if digital graphics has caught your fancy at your wonderfully young age, I'd encourage you to take a course at school which gives you access to Photoshop. From what I've seen, you'd take to it like a duck to water. wink.gif

THIS is Photoshop in a master's hands . . . (not mine!) cool.gif

Cool you paint Planes to, for what. I got FS2004 but I don't run it much Since MSTS takes up all my space. Post a few pics of some planes you have painted.

P.S Again, $700 dollars for me can go a looooooong way tongue.gif
