I'll be posting my updates in here from now on (and they might not just be vehicles...)PS: yes, the image is from an alternate universe where LNER has 10-car Azumas and the ECML has TVM signalling

Quote from: jonbridg on July 23, 2020, 06:59:29 PMA busy scene somewhere in the North of England. A 2-car Class 195 trundles over the mainline as a 4-car Class 331 with a stopping service makes ready to depart. Passing on the fast lines is a Class 319 on its way to Liverpool while in the depot a newly-delivered Class 769 undergoes tests in diesel mode.On the subject of retirement dates, I'll add it to my list. As it happens I'll need to modify a number of .dats to accept new trains so it makes sense to take at the same time.Below: one of these new trains has long been retired, and the other should have been years ago!Ah, Pacers. The marmite of British Railways! In the cream and green of the West Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive is Class 141, the first production run of Pacers from 1984, so Pacer fans can have one a year earlier! You'd better be quick though, it becomes obsolete with the introduction of Class 142 in 1985. The class was retired in 1997.Beside it is a Class 144, the only Pacer available in 3-car formation, in WYPTE red and cream. Driving cars will be available from 1985 and the middle car from 1987. The class is not due to be retired until the end of August 2020 thanks to an exemption from disability regulations to cover for late deliveries of Class 195 above, although many are now in store.

Quote from: jamespetts on July 23, 2020, 08:09:12 PMIs there a Github repository where you are uploading these (and the .blends for them, in case anyone else needs to add more liveries, etc. in future)?Apologies if you have mentioned this before and I have missed it.
Quote from: jonbridg on July 24, 2020, 01:09:08 PMYeah, they're not the most attractive of trains, but I'm sure people will prefer them over Pacers.

Quote from: jonbridg on July 26, 2020, 04:32:03 PMIn preparation for new vehicles I've been updating the livery definitions in simuconf and en.tab. These changes have now been pushed to my repo.The figure in brackets is the number of liveries added with each scheme.Added livery schemes for TransPennine, Wales & Borders (4), Bristol & SW (Wessex Trains, metrobus), Caledonian Sleeper (Serco), Merseytravel (4), Essex Thameside (3, c2c), WCML Franchise (Avanti), Tyne & Wear (4) and Thameslink GN (5, includes wagn)New livery definitions under existing schemes are LNER, East Coast Trains (2021), West Midlands Network, TfL Rail and Overground (2018 revision), and a name change for the London-Midland livery scheme in en.tab - to London & Midlands - to enable LNwR and Silverlink without starting a new livery scheme.I've also corrected what looked like an error in the Lynton & Barnstaple livery: one entry carried the number of the livery scheme preceding it.

Quote from: kierongreen on July 27, 2020, 06:48:34 PMThat depends on which side it is as the toilet will be on one with a passageway on the other in the centre carriage that doesn't have a pantograph - see image at https://www.communityraillancashire.co.uk/news/class-769-driver-training/ for the other side for example.
Quote from: thegamer7893 on July 27, 2020, 07:08:14 PMAs seen in the picture below, the toilet side is corrected marked on the class 319s non-motor coach whereas on the class 769 it is incorrectly marked (as they are both the same train with the class 769s being the dual-mode versions)

Quote from: jonbridg on July 27, 2020, 11:12:02 PMKieron, well-spotted - I hoped no-one would notice that one! I mapped both sides of the vehicles with the same texture to save time. I'll take a look at re-mapping it when I'm finished with the dats.
Quote from: jonbridg on July 27, 2020, 11:12:02 PMThe extra toilet window is indeed an error common to both Class 319/769 and has been corrected.A class 196 in West Midlands Railway livery, fresh from the workshop. Like classes 195, 331 and 397, this is a CivityUK product from CAF. The very similar class 197 has been ordered by Transport for Wales but it's low priority until better info on it becomes available.Kieron, well-spotted - I hoped no-one would notice that one!

Quote from: jonbridg on July 29, 2020, 12:47:34 AMWas this to compensate for the tractive effort of 100kn per car?
Quote from: Vladki on May 24, 2020, 10:39:29 PMI have got to try the class 801 (800) and found some discrepancies. (and this old thread).Diesel engine has correct power 700 kW, but electric has 4x 226 = 904 kW, according to http://www.hitachi.com/rev/pdf/2014/r2014_10_105.pdfPower and weight is also here (for the whole train). Power agrees with the above.https://web.archive.org/web/20181005071852/https://www.railengineer.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Table-1-Hitachi-800-802-orders-V3-Avenir.pdf
