Quote from: DrSuperGood on June 14, 2015, 10:50:16 PMAlso the cooling truck comes in 1963 I think and not 1950 odd.
QuoteThe horse drawn "cooling" wagon is probably the latest addition to the pak64 project (either that, or the Japanese passenger EMU). I don't know why it's obsolete long before the cooling truck becomes available. Maybe horse drawn vehicles would be to much of a hindrance to other (motorized) vehicles beyond 1930. It was added to match the fishing sloop, which was available for over two centuries without any corresponding land vehicles. So maybe it wasn't intended so much as a precursor to the cooling truck as the cooling wagons, although there is considerable overlap with the first cooling wagon.

Quote from: DrSuperGood on June 15, 2015, 02:12:30 PMThe reality is that the horse drawn vehicle for perishables is not viable. They just move so little so slowly that you need at least 3 parallel streets from the dock to the marketplace to move the goods (I once tried). Such a line can be replaced with pretty much a single train line and 2 or so train convoys and is profitable enough that you could stick the entire thing underground.
