Not really i mean a drivable one if it would be possible.

I was thinking taking it from the orignal Microsoft train simulator and converting the files so that we could drive it.

I rather like the old 50s, used to see them fairly frequently at Cheltenham Spa.
The hard bit is getting the right sort of pics (sides, front, underframe etc, taken "square on" or near as possible)for exterior & cab plus the proper sounds, always harder when the loco is no longer in service.
Surprised Steve Thomas doesn't have one??? Or maybe it's "in the pipeline" :-)

Right so, found it and may I say what a lovely cab! I might have a go at some externals one fine day, unless you beat me to it Very Happy   Would look nice on its way to Hereford from Newport.

You know what "intellectual property" means, right...?

As of this moment I don't have any plans to make one, why?

Well it's the same problem I have with the Class 37 and the 97/3, I may have loads of photo's of both Classes but none have a good side on centred shot of either the cast or fabricated bogies they have!

I've also felt a bit bad about using the work of Martin's in my own externals and sometimes altering them!

Although he does not always notice what the alterations are when I give him the WIP to comment on!  

But at the moment it's the Mk2 coaches I am back working on and possibly the best train ever to ride the rails in the UK from a passenger point of view next year.

These also more than likely resulted in the Inter City sector actually making £10 million profit in the last year of BR!

Although that would mean nicking an ex TSC product and tweaking it a bit, from Martins site. Bugger......
