    Played about with the overhead live wire plates to make them a little less bright..... And someone has wiped the dirt from one of the Tinsley depot allocation stickers. :) 2021-03-11 (11).jpg 2021-03-11 (12).jpg

    Indeed. Alot of me reference pictures showed that logo to be more accurate. However, the only thing stopping me is the rather low resolution that the livery Designer renders your design in. Dont wana spent ages on a nice logo only to see a pixley mess so I opted for somthing I could at least see.

    Not 100% sure this livery combination ran together, but I just wanted to test my new reskins, Class 52 in rail blue with small yellow panel and Royal Mail Parcels MK1 NEA's.

    Both very nicely done though by the way.

    To further the description above "Chessie" was part of the C&O's marketing campaign for their passenger trains back in the day, it was later used for the Chessie System logo.
    AmtrakGuy365 did a decent video on the subject if you are interested.

    Class08 in "Network Rail" yellow. It was a little challenge to match all the stripes at the front and the rear end correctly.

    One thing that puzzles me, and it seems to be very consistent in CSX-era Chessie locos: the panels on the cab sides, upper, lower or both, have been repainted to cover up the old road numbers and reporting marks, unsurprisingly, but almost always in a pale yellow paint that certainly isn't Chessie but doesn't match any of CSX's yellows either. I'm trying to figure out what it is.

    Revised sneak peek; it's nearly ready:

    [​IMG]

    I know about the lights, but Chessie liked their logo and painted it as big as there was space for. It just looked wrong shrunk down.

    Thanks! I have to admit, that I didn't google the color codes before. But I guess the company colors are available in the internet, at least with the manufacturer for model construction paints. What I found: EWS red 418 "Maroon Red" and EWS yellow 419 are available in the stores, but no specific RGB codes...

    Sadly there is no way to download this since I am on xbox. I think pc users can share things, but it has been an issue we've brought up with DTG for console users. Something about copyright issues is why they say we can't.

    One site which can be helpful is this one: http://www.art-paints.com

    You have to go by type and (there's no site search function) manufacturer, and only the ones which do model paints really are useful, but you can look under enamels, acrylics and airbrush paints under Badger, Testor's, Humbrol, Floquil and Model Master. BUT -here's the good part - each chip comes with RGB and Hex (HTML) codes, which can be converted to HSV easily enough.

    Also, at least for US RR, there is this page: http://bondystrainz.bondysworld.com/?page_id=3445

    Also, hang out in model railroad forums; there's lots of discussion of paint colors and substitutions, for example that L&N's gray is nicely reproduced with Floquil Reefer Gray (or almost; L&N to my eye was just a teensy bit greener).

    Now, BIG CAVEAT: there is no guarantee that any of these are accurate. Both model paint companies and enthusiasts often take a "best guess"- so try out a color in game lighting (why LD's lighting is different from in-game I don't know but it's a bad design oversight); use timetable mode or a custom scenario and compare it to photos- lots of photos, because their color balance is always dubious; you need an average.

    If you are feeling hardcore, start loading photos into a graphics program like Photoshop or GIMP and use the eyedropper function to sample colors (with the usual caution about old photos often being faded, poorly shot, poorly developed, taken through a filter etc etc etc).

    It shouldn't be so bad to make- but getting it to you will be difficult if you're on console

    I could do it up and post a screenshot of the layers screen

    OK, here it is: the final member of the original planned set of seven. These are all the fallen-flag liveries applied to GP38s which made it into the CSX era

    • B & O
    • C & O
    • Chessie System
    • Family Lines
    • L & N
    • Seaboard Coast
    • Seaboard System
    [​IMG]

    But before I trim them up and package them for download, I think I'll attempt one Bonus Mystery Locomotive. I'm not sure if it's possible to do it decently within 300 layers, but I'll give it a go....

    Fictional TCDD E43000 for Class 66

    If you'll let me know which TSW2 locomotive you would like this logo on, I'll put the logo on it for you and tell you how to upload it. Unfortunately, I can only do those engines which came out with or after TSW2, and the very small number so far of TSW2020 locos which have been made Livery Editor compatible.

    Thank you for your reply.
    I figured out how to install them by tsw livery manager. I am using tsw2 and I would like default SD40 for TCDD DE24000 and Class66 for TCDD E43000.

    I think I can do TCDD DE24000: would you like it in red or blue?

    I'm afraid I only have the GWE version of the Class 66, which isn't Livery Designer compatible yet. One would need SEHS for that.

    ...some liveries for the BR Class 52. Somehow I like old classic diesel locos, no matter which country they come from!

    Train Sim World 2_20210313223634.jpg
    This livery based on the real "First Great Western" with a little artistic variation, but including the real logo.

    Train Sim World 2_20210312202302.jpg
    This is a former East German paint scheme from "Deutsche Reichsbahn".

    Train Sim World 2_20210313231911.jpg
    Last but not least, I created my own version for the "West Somerset Railway".
