    Okay I have to ask, how did you get the hand rails as a separate color? I keep getting my logos bleeding through, even with trying to use the stupid projection tool!

    well I guess there was no completion. I mean this is not the first-time this thread almost died with the help of zbartelt08 we revived it so there are a ton of amazing liverys in the livery designer creations thread but this one seems to be dead

    Theres maybe not enough content in livery editor yet to keep this thread going. Iv no used the editor for weeks as I dont want to do anymore US loco's. Maybe get a revival if some of the preserved stuff gets added!

    I know it is actually a 53' wellcar, but until we get real 48' ones, this will have to do to add visual variety TSW2_Adam_1603647251_00.png

    Actually, I believe that it is 56'. At least that is what the default DTGX livery says.

    They do exist, but are quiet rare. They were made i think to hold 4 28ft containers for UPS but the idea never took off. I also can't find a prototype photo of the 4 28ft containers.

    Ok, interesting.

    But DTG should have used the much more common 53' cars. How did they come across this car. I have never heard of one before today. And then why did they decide that a 56' wellcar was the best one to use as a generic car?!

    Sorry for the short rant. I had to get that out.

    They are so obscure that the only place I could find good photos of them are in this album on rrpicturesarchives
    http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/rsList.aspx?aid=S714&id=DTTX

    But I think most if not all have been resized to either 53ft or 40ft service (Like the 48ft Well Cars)
