Was wondering if anyone out there could be working on British trains, buses and lorries with their own schemes. Been playing this for a while now and I am quite looking forward to seeing British Engineering in the game.
Would like to see (only know trains a little) – class 395 Javelin (South Eastern), class 390 Pendolino(Virgin), Class 43 (FGW, EC, XC, VT), Class 375/379(Southern+South Eastern)
Please reply your thoughts,

There has been some Class 08-11 Shunters and 55 Deltics in BR liveries added, (ask for links if you want) also there has been a 158 DMU added in East-Midlands livery.January 6, 2015 at 09:12 #15677
I did some shunters they can be found here http://www.train-fever.net/filebase/index.php/Filebase/18-Diesel/ then I die No 5 Shannon, AS presevered in didcot railway center http://www.train-fever.net/filebase/index.php/Entry/645-No-5-Shannon/ and I am currently building more rolling stock to match thoseJanuary 6, 2015 at 17:07 #15697simonmdParticipant
Beautifully done as your shunters are, I found them not to be economically viable in the game because of their speed. We are constantly tied by this ’20 min’ rule and a train that travels at 30mph is not going to compete very well. I don’t want to discourage you though because the models themselves are very nicely done and I hope this spurs you onto making some more for us Brit fans! If you like Diesel, how about a class 43 HST?January 7, 2015 at 14:55 #15729
I now about this problem, I puplished these shunters with their original speed. These were my very first models and I didn’t want to make something that is in anyway important to the game, because if I would have screwed it nobody would have been angry. If you want to make the shunters more useful in the game, you can do so by opening your steam directory and then going to steamapps/common/trainfever/res/models/model/vehicle/train there you find the mdl files of every engine in the game. You can open the Class 08/r 08; 09/r 09; 11/r 11 mdls with the editor or notepad++ line 127 contains the top speed of the model and you can change this value to your liking 🙂January 8, 2015 at 00:29 #15738simonmdParticipant
That’s a good idea, I didn’t know they could be changed so easy, i’ll use them on a short goods line then.January 14, 2015 at 11:08 #16002
I have tried looking in steamapps/common/trainfever/res/models/model/vehicle/train as suggested. My system says that the folder is empty?
Any suggestions? I install most mods using TFGM mostly, and the few that are incompatible I use TFMM.January 14, 2015 at 13:07 #16004
try using the search function for your res folder and look after “Class 08.mdl”. If the folder would be really empty you shouldn’t have any locomotives in the game. Therefore I think your system might be hiding them in some way.January 14, 2015 at 17:40 #16009
Thanks, your suggestion worked!January 27, 2015 at 21:30 #16415
I just released some freight wagons and started a poll what i should mod nextApril 23, 2015 at 17:26 #18445
I just finished work on the Class 156 DMU. There are now 3 Versions available at: http://www.train-fever.net/filebase/index.php/Entry/969-British-Rail-Class-156/May 7, 2015 at 18:42 #18508
I finished the LNER Gresley Teak coaches http://www.train-fever.net/filebase/index.php/Entry/1158-L-N-E-R-Gresley-61ft-6in-side-corridor-composite/May 15, 2015 at 22:35 #18549
I finished the LMS 3F Jinty http://www.train-fever.net/filebase/index.php/Entry/1196-LMS-3F-Jinty/June 5, 2015 at 20:28 #18797morietyParticipant
Putting famous British Shunters into this game is pretty pointless: They did exactly what they were intended to do: shunt rolling stock around at individual stations or marshalling yards, and were never built for public service or speed, just traction and pulling power, the class 08 probably being the best example: high traction and very small for her output.
I’d like to see the Castle (4073 class) and Deltic classes in the game! Seeing the then beasts of the railways: Classes 37, 52 and 55 would be good. The Deltic had two engines and her pulling power was such that it meant that no more than one engine was ever switched on, if a breakdown occurred (very rarely) the crew simply put the other engine on.June 6, 2015 at 11:25 #18809
The Deltics always ran on BOTH engines in service, they needed all their power to maintain the tight schedules on the east coast main line, these frequently required 100mph running. They only ran on one engine when they had breakdown on one of the engines, this allowed them to continue their journey at reduced speed rather than becoming a cripple like other single engined locos.
PS: The twin engines made so much noise that many of their drivers suffered from hearing loss in later life.
