Another of my WIP's. Is nearly finished, have done a lot more since when this shot was taken but nevertheless to give you an idea...

There will be 2 versions, one to suit containers (eg. butterboxes) and one to suit steel coils (will have steel coil cradles on top rather than container pins).

Looking good. The steel coil ones would work for recreating the Long Island steel train as I'm fairly certain it uses these or variations of these for both its container and steel coil loads. The gondola type cars I'm not sure what they are.

G'day tommyg,

Hey, Tom, it's not often I get excited about something far too modern for my liking but I am "gob smacked" over the realistic look of those bogies...

That bogie Garry is available from JointedRail (theres a link in my VFHX beta thread)...they really are incredible pieces of work.

@tom12, yeah everything I've shown other than my FA log wagon is still unreleased mate, still got work to do on them :)

Hi Yianni,

Tom sent the PH vans to me for updating, while I was at the exhibition I was with everyone, but was trying to remember what I was going to say about the PH vans, but with the excitement of the exhibition I couldn't remember.

The PH vans have allot of hidden polys that haven't been deleted, such as all the Louvres, each one can remove 2 polys, however my Gmax is also a little glitchy and difficult to work with, meshes tend to disappear and you need to rotate/move the scene to get them to show.

Yeah,

Here's the video of the issue.

All Gmax models do this and it's annoying.
