Krauss-Maffei! laugh.gif

Fabulous German heavy-engineering corporation! Unfortunately long since taken over... sad.gif

EDIT: But they are indeed awesome locomotives (unique at least). Only thing I might suggest for a possible update is to make them a bit darker and add more weathering so that they tune in better with other SP units available. smile.gif

OK, Will keep the dirty look in mind. The creator likes the clean look and thought that if some one wanted a dirty one, they can make it as dirty as they want.

David and Erik,

What a model! laugh.gif This is the kind of SP-specific stuff I have been thirsting for. I am especially impressed with the distinctly European-look of the cab--quite a contrast to the standard American cabs wink.gif . And the sound, much like the distinctive GE sounds, set this engine apart from the EMDs. In deference to the comment on the windows in an earlier post: indeed they are visually larger than the old AHM/Rivarossi model (I have one setting on my bookcase), but this in no way detracts from this outstanding model. I, for one, do not get mired in endless debates over details.

I hooked 9002 up to a 3DTrains F7B and 40 cars, and ran it out of Bakersfield. Pure bliss. biggrin.gif

To the prophets of doom over on the Surfliner Forum, here is the answer to your questions about the future of MSTS--great modelers and artists, with visionary route developers will find a way to persevere and satisfy the community. smile.gif

Thanks for your efforts--now, when is the DH-643 going to leave the shops?

Dave

The DH-643 should have been done a while ago, but like all good things it is not. tongue.gif

I downloaded the KMs yesterday, and had the SP units running on Tehachapi last night. These are beautiful locomotives! The detail is excellent. I really like the distinctive cabview and the sounds. They look great hauling a string of reefers up through Bealville.

Hey Dave, I am tired of those doomsayers as well. No doom around here unless you want there to be. Just too much talent and too many nice new things coming out. What we have now is the cream rising to the top....the rest has sunk to the bottom of the barrel so to speak. That's all that has happened to this sim. Hey, I ain't giving up yet! Sometimes when I run conbuilder and find another thousand or so errors I start to think about it, but if I haven't left yet, I ain't goin' nowhere soon! huh.gif We have miles and miles of tracks to run yet in this sim. I am loving it myself!

Wow, how did I miss this one?

A belated thank you for those magnificent Kraus Maffei's!
