    I know that this 6 steam where of the Denver & Rio Grande but Rio Grande have selled this at the CRR, I think it would be nice to see it in game has a steam locolomotive add-on and not a re-skin of the UP Challenger Clinchfield Challenger 676.jpg

    A Rio Grande Challenger for the Soldier Summit Route could be a great addon. In fact, the Clinchfield bought six Challengers from the D&RGW. Maybe we could also get a Western Pacific Challenger skin for the Feather River Canyon route.

    I'd love to see a Clinchfield challenger in TS! I'm pretty sure there's some kinda reskin of the UP Challenger in CRR colors somewhere on RWA, but still MORE AMERICAN STEAM!

    Of the 3 types of 4-6-6-4's that the Clinchfield rostered, I think the E-3 would be the most likely one to be made, as it give more options. (With both CRR and DRGW paint as mentioned above) though maybe someone could make the other models as well.

    Another issue I'm seeing is the lack of reference photos of these locos as well.

    E-1 CRR #654

    E-2 CRR #663

    E-2 CRR#661

    E-3 CRR #675

    Also maybe someone could make Clinchfield's other steam locomotives like the 2-8-8-2's

    It may be 'ok' for you but for a developer who wants to make a model accurately a bunch of randomly angled shots from different distances aren't enough.

    I'd much rather have a modified UP Challenger, than a completely new addon. With a bit of child objects and changes it could be accurate to suffice, besides, I would much rather want to pay $8 for the RSC challenger than $20 for a new one that's exactly the same in physics and sounds.

    I will don't agree with you because I like more a train add-on then a re-skin because it's not the same thing

    I mean that is ok for me to buy livery that is of the same company but buy a livery used for UP Challenger that make it one of the Clinchfield I will don't buy that type of livery because I don't like livery of other train of the UP or BNSF that will make that train one of the Clinchfield, Sounthern

    So you'd rather spend more on a separate add-on (say $15-20 USD) rather than a marketplace skin (average $5 USD) because you don't like the look of other railroad liveries?
