    Hi all,
    I’m currently in the process on creating a livery for a 2+8 HST, I’m just wondering if there is any way to add a different powercar number on the rear end. I only seem to be able to edit the leading powercar & of course the coaching stock. Has anyone got this issue or know how to get around it and have two separate numbers rather than two PCs with the same number
    Cheers all

    Afraid not, what's on ne PC is also on the other. Out of interest which livery are you doing?

    The only real work-around is a cheat I'm afraid.
    When you create your leading powercar put a different number on each side. Then when the game flips the rear powercar you'll see the other number instead giving the impression of two different powercars.
    As you can never see both sides of the train at once this 'cheat' is quite effective. :)

    Many thanks for your reply, I’m doing the Merlin livery, I see there is also a few already been made, my version of it is trying to be almost a replica of the real thing despite only using a PS5 editor so it’s a huge challenge without most of the editing tools which a PC offers. Currently into my fifth day of working on the set. It is a slightly weathered Merlin livery with many little features in which others sadly haven’t included on their brilliant edits.

    That is actually a very good idea! I was thinking along them lines however didn’t think more of putting it to my design. I will give that a go as it’s a brilliant idea. Many thanks for your reply :D

    Very nice. Do pop a link here when you get it done so I (we?) can check it out! Certainly a challenge on the console, but achievable nonetheless.

    Don’t worry I’m on PS5 too and I can assure you that many things can be done on console, I was amazed by myself to be able to recreate some details I thought, was was only achievable on PC.

    orrrr what you can try and do is just make the liveries on the sole powercar. Because either way you can spawn in GWR's MK3 carriages in (attach it to a loco+a mk2 to spawn them in) and then spawn the 2 power cars down and attach them to it to form whatever formation amount of mk3 carriages u want. Although that isnt as realistic. Its one way to get each end of the power car to get a different number.

    I have so many liveries to do, I’ll try to do it later but I’ve done some annoying logos to do like “Silverlink” and these below. What’s more annoying is the fact that all these hours making such details are gone as I can’t use these liveries. They were made on TSW 2 and 3 and there’s a glitch were they don’t appears correctly, DTG is aware but they don’t care as always.

    I might have spent hours just for the coat of arms but anything is possible, if you have a strong mental lol.
    Your Merlin HST is really well done good job mate.

    My edit is finally uploaded, I think I have covered everything that I could get onto it. I’m not sure on how to pop a link onto here for you.. I’m not overly good at these kind of things “embarrassing I know” if you head to the creator part I’m sure you’ll see it buddy. If you are able to download it then I hope you enjoy using it.
