Canadian Theme Pack - Trains / Railways [Discussion]

Attachment:
CanRail - v2.0 - Overview.png

Introduction :

Welcome to the Platinum Edition of Canadian Trains and Railways, a major module in the Canadian Theme Pack. It is a comprehensive train replacement set for Transport Tycoon Deluxe (TTDPatch and OpenTTD). It features a large number of Canadian trains, locomotives, passenger coaches and freight cars from the late 1880's to present day and into the future, covering steam, diesel and electric.

The set covers the many rail companies (roads) that have been and still are operating in Canada; to name them :

» Canadian National (CNR)
» VIA Rail (VIA)
» Canadian Pacific (CPR)
» Temiskaming + Northern Ontario (T+NO)
» Ontario Northland (ONR)
» Pacific Great Eastern (PGR)
» British Columbia / BCRail (BCR)
» Algoma Central (ACR)
» Northern Alberta (NAR)
» London + Port Stanley (L+PS)
» Toronto Hamilton + Buffalo (THB)
» Québec, Northshore + Labrador (QNSL)
» GO-Transit (GTR)
» West Coast Express (WCE)

Apart from standard gauge rolling stock, it contains a complete set of narrow gauge engines and wagons, representing :

» White Pass and Yukon Railways (WPY)
» Newfoundland Railways (NFR)

On a very quick count, the module includes in the standard gauge section :

» 14 Steam Locomotives in 53 liveries (using 13 vehicle Ids), of these 20 liveries are new additions, the remaining liveries have all been updated/modified by DanMacK.
» 40 Diesel Locomotives/Trains in 158 liveries (using 33 vehicle Ids), of these 66 liveries are new additions, of the remaining liveries only 33 have been left unmodified.
» 6 Electric Locomotives/Trains in 19 liveries (using 6 vehicle Ids), of these 10 liveries are new additions, of the remaining liveries 3 have been modified.
» 5 Passenger Coaches and Mail Cars in 56 liveries (using 5 vehicle Ids), of these 21 liveries are new additions.
» 28 Freight Cars in 151 liveries (using 25 vehicle Ids), of these 23 liveries are new additions, of the remaining liveries many have been modified. The 17 different Vans (Cabeese) should get a special mention.

In the narrow gauge sections, the module includes :

» 4 Steam Locomotives in 7 liveries (using 4 vehicle Ids), of these 3 liveries are new additions, the remaining liveries have all been updated/modified by DanMacK.
» 4 Diesel Locomotives in 15 liveries (using 4 vehicle Ids), of these 9 liveries are new additions.
» 4 Passenger Coaches and Mail Cars in 10 liveries (using 4 vehicle Ids), of these 4 liveries are new additions.
» 11 Freight Cars in 39 liveries (using 11 vehicle Ids), of these 17 liveries are new additions, of the remaining liveries many have been modified. The 8 different Vans (Cabeese) should get a special mention.

To make up to the 113 vehicle Ids available in TTDPatch; there are still 6 vacant slots and the remaining 2 have been used for the invisible road switchers. If there wasn't that limit of 113 vehicle Ids, we would have been using 116 Ids instead of just 105; but the remaining 6 available ones will be used in the near future too.

Compared to CanRail v1.x, this set has been overhauled totally with many new vehicles added; whereas already existing ones have been updated and enhanced by DanMacK and OzTrans.
