    Moin,

    they are useful for nothing whatsoever, but then, they are fun to make and to look at when they're finally done, and maybe other people round here like them too: Some out a few (a few hundred, that is) drawings I made over the years. In varying scale, varying levels of skill and detail.

    Maybe you recognize some of these from our common favourite trainsim game ;)

    I can see where DTG is coming from not wanting mess with THAT license - I didn't want to either, as could genuinely see the Branson empire going after some random painter on deviantArt who doesn't even make money from using their logo.

    Still wanting to draw that (fairly badass to be honest) livery, I did this:
    HST Virgin Black.PNG

    Maybe something like that - or just leaving the logos out entirely - could also be an option to revive these DLCs later TrainSim-Matt ? NWC is one of the more popular TS routes after all.

    Always looking for inspirations for what to draw next by the way, so if anyone has an idea, lemme know!

    What software do you use to make these? I would like to draw one locomotive.

    As for the inspiration. Take a look at some of the Eurocity trains. There are always interesting paint jobs to be found.

    The software? Oh... unless you're with the CIA, the Pentagon, MI6, or any other outlet of the illuminati... forget about it. It's so damn top secret software, you're not going to get your hands on it. I can tell you the name though, maybe you find it on the black market somewhere. It's called MS Paint. The Windows XP version, I should add.

    Eurocity? Like Eurofima coaches and such? DB, ÖBB, SBB... these?

    I mean an Eurocity train with an interestingly painted locomotive and coaches from various countries that the train runs through.
    Something like this:

    Nice job! These are fantastic! The Virgin trains are especially awesome. Have you heard, by the way, that Virgin Trains has bought a high speed rail line in the US? It's called Brightline and runs in Florida.

    As Madonna stated it's "Like a Virgin". :)

    Speaking of America.. I hardly ever did US stuff, but a bit now and then, yes. Like.. Two trains overall. Ispired by "the other" trainsim though rather than TSW.

    Not as of now unfortunately. Been wanting to do some F40s and the likes for a while, maybe I'll get to them one day.

    A misfortune we will never see this or other Virgin trains for TSW. DTG recently retired the license with the end of WCML.

    Aight, they're on the wishlist :D

    Weird actually, it wasn't that long they posted the article about visiting Virgin. Looks like something didn't go as planned by DTG either.

    I think that's what surprised people the most. The fact that it looked like Virgin would make an entrance soon and then them say we'll never get them as a railway.

    Well that's Virgin for ya -.-

    Bad thing for us players tho, if I were DTG I'd rather not work with them again if that's how they want to be like.

    I know the feeling. BNSF is a American railroad I'd like to see since they have many Amtrak trains running as well as Union Pacific running on their tracks. But they won't sell content to anyone except for the US. I'm in the US, but not everyone is.

    Oh yeah... I was so excited when I saw Marias Pass was available for TS20xx... except it wasn't available to me. It's strange. I mean, I can see what the point of "Buy American" is, but sell American? I don't get it. And then its such a fabulous livery I'm excluded from...
