Here’s a VIA Rail Canada F40. I had to edit the livery slightly to account for the longer length of the -3C, but I think it turned out OK. Next up is weathering as well as some coaches.
My final product (for now). A VIA train as it would have appeared in the late 80s/early 90s.
Great job they look nice
One question: Are we able to create liverys for the Br185 now?
Meanwhile at London Paddington
Don't forget to paint the headcode discs.
My Tokyo Olympic train is finally finished.
I made 3 versions. One that is numbered 903, another with 906, and the final one numbered 909.
Unfortunately, I am on console, and I'm unable to use this train in-game due to it looking pixelated. Hopefully, this is fixed in the next update.
Honestly, I might come back to it in the future to see if the Logo needs to be centered or not, but it is finished for now. Time to move onto the Passenger Cars, and some of the other trains.
I like this. Did the class 40 ever run in nse colours?
This is great, how many hours did it take?
I think it took about 30-40 hours
I saw this livery for the ACS-64......not sure if it is a real livery....does someone know?
Ah, class 50 did I think?
The ICE 1 on a demonstration run in the USA
The reason for the ICE demo ride was that North America had growing interest in intercity passenger transport with high-speed, high-comfort trains. That's why Siemens and AEG wanted to present their technology in America. The advertising tour was financed by Siemens and AEG, while Amtrak and DB AG provided organizational support for the project.
Together with Siemens, Amtrak worked out a schedule for the ICE deployment in North America. This consisted of the following parts:
-Four weeks of approval and test drives in the northeast corridor
-Eight week presentation tour across the USA
-Twelve weeks of regular use as "Metroliner" between New York and Washington
The multiple unit vehicles were prepared for use in the USA within 6 weeks (see technical adaptation). Among other things, a conversion kit for the line voltage of 11 kV / 25 Hz had to be provided.
After the conversion by the manufacturers Duewag, LHB and Krauss-Maffei, the multiple unit was transferred to Berlin (Henningsdorf) for two-week commissioning. Ultimately, a due and necessary deadline investigation is carried out in the Hamburg depot. Only then could the "Amtrak-ICE" be transferred to Bremerhaven for shipping. The ICE was in America from July 1 to December 15, 1993. During this period he covered a distance of around 80,500 km. A total of around 120,000 people saw the train with their own eyes or even rode it.
So that the ICE could also run in America, some techn. Changes are made. These goods:
The contact wire voltage had to be changed from 15 kV / 16.67 Hz to 12 kV / 25 Hz.
This change was made to the traction control software. The traction power was reduced by 30% to 3300 KW per power end.
Exchange of pantographs with products from Brecknell + Willis. These pantographs are also used on the Amtrak locomotives.
Installation of a driver's cab signaling and speed control system, as is common with Amtrak on the north-east corridor.
Installation of new air brake pressure valves and software
Replacement of the UIC brake hoses and air shut-off valves in the bow area with American standard components. This meant that the brake lines could also be coupled to American locomotives.
All running and motor bogies were matched to the American superstructure.
Installation of the Amtrak train radio system
Display and operating devices in the driver's cab were labeled with American designations.
Installation of the Amtrak train protection system in the ICE brake control. In addition, a rapid braking accelerator was installed in the intermediate car.
Application of the Amtrak logo to the power car and the intermediate car
Since there is no ICE of the 1st generation in the TSW 2, I repainted the ICE 3 on its paintwork.
Yes. Class 50 along with class 33, class 73 and class 47 among others.
That livery is a photoshop, here's the same photo with a NH livery as well, Amtrak doesn't have any liveries of other railroads aside from their own.
Thanks.....it was still fun to create.
My next projects, VIA Rail liveries….the Kool-Aid one will be the first
Wow that looks really good. Do you play on PC?
Thanks very much
No….I’m on an Xbox
Here’s my unfinished one
Can I ask what codes you used for the Blue and Yellow?
The ones I used on my reskin of Andania looked satisfactory enough in the editor but once I viewed it in game it looked far too bright, especially sat next to another 40, I don't mind having it just out of the paintshop look but it looks just wrong.
Welcome to the world of Livery Editor….. Always go duller than you need in the editor then check it in game for the true colour.
Kool Aid done and the next one started....a peak at the last pic
For anybody who owns the F40, this might be a Fun livery to do (pun entirely intended)
(Not my picture)
I use https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_UK_Railways/Colours_list for the colour codes, and then stick the codes into http://www.perbang.dk/rgb/084058/ to find the HSV. I believe the British Rail Blue is H:198, S:91, V: 35
Yes it does….might try that
VIA Rail F40 with CBC livery is finished.
Just in case people have missed it the mastery rewards for Boston Sprinter are some extra weathering shapes for Livery Editor.
It so annoying that they wont just give us those normally ):<
Still broken 4 months in....won't let me paint any of the new ones or any of my old ones either. 163/300 shouldn't be an issue.
EWS Class 40
Like this, did ews operate 40s? Or is this fictional?
Fictional. The last of the class 40s were withdrawn in 1985 and EWS didn’t come about till the late 90s.
Nice, although the roof is a dark blue
You are right, just noted, ...and a couple of other things to be modified. Thank you
Had a go at making my own fictional livery. Any suggestions for other features I could add?
One side complete of the VIA Rail Canada 150 6454....there are multiple locos with different cities on each loco. the other side has different cities on it. Had to create the one with Halifax on it, as it is my home city.
