Quote from: jonbridg on February 28, 2021, 08:37:59 PMFinally made some more progress on the Stadler FLIRT range, after some setbacks upgrading Ubuntu to 20.04...This is the regional bi-mode variant and is available in formations of 2- to 6-cars, with 960kw or 1920kw power-packs, and optional 'bistro' car or trolley-service. I can see these being popular trains - even limited to 960kw the 2- and 3-car FLIRTS can keep time with contemporary DMUs, while at 1920kw a 2-car can outpace some EMUs!I have coded the power-pack cars as motor vehicles (with tractive effort adjusted to compensate) which makes different power options (including batteries or even fuel-cells) much simpler to implement. A few more tweaks to make, including adding Greater Anglia livery...
