  1. Hello to all my friends and Trainzing family here at TrainzItalia. I would like to share some photos of trains I have taken here in Colorado. Ciao, Cheers and Best Regards, Owen
  2. Getting ready to have some good Mexcian food* and margaritas! June in Colorado with dear family! I will let her know to look ahead and that the best of life is still to come and I will pass along the train of wishes from Das Karognenführer -- who else here could do so with such passion, conviction and aplomb! As a few here might be able to guess from getting know me over the years , she is far more serene than I will ever be, so she has that already going for her! Thank you both! * technically Tex Mex for th
  3. Hello Good Friends! Today my oldest daughter turns 21! Today is a great day for celebrating her and all of life and living! Here is a swinging, singing Moon and June song that expresses my joy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zj1FifK3bbg Just a cartoon from the mid 1930's I Love To Singa Hope you all have a great rest of your Sunday! Ciao, Cheers and Best Regards Owen
  4. Hail, hale and well met! Thank you ettore48 and pegaso52! I very much appreciate the hellos and greetings from Turin and Rome! Take care, be safe and strong and be well! Health and happiness to you both! Cheers to you both my friends!
  5. Hello to all of my friends and Trainzing family at TZIT! A long overdue hello and a heaping helping of “howdy ho!” from Lakewood! As a famous Roman author once stated: Arma virumque cano, Troiae qui primus ab oris Italiam, fato profugus, Laviniaque venit litora, multum ille et terris iactatus et alto vi superum saevae memorem Iunonis ob iram; inferretque deos Latio, genus unde Latinum, multa quoque et bello passus, dum conderet urbem, Albanique patres, atque altae moenia Romae. Musa, mihi causas memora, quo n
  6. Yes. The Big Ten hopper wind shield is perfectly placed, well considered static asset; I admire it every time through the Big Ten in WFD ML. Most of Highway 93 from Golden to Boulder is typically very windy; frequently there is enough dirt/dust in Summer, snow in Winter that either particulate, driven by high winds, reduces visibility to under a mile. The mountain winds really open up around Coal Creek and tear down hill towards the Big Ten "hill" and Highway 93.
  7. Update to USA Locomotives and Rolling Stock: This was certainly news and new to me. Labeled "Yard Clutter," static locomotives exist and were made by btvfd! I have no idea when these were made but they are CM build 3.5. Amazing ingenuity proven yet again by Trainz content creators. These are locomotives models, specifically reskins of Dave Snow models, but they are not drivable so at least use less resources; as to how much less resources perhaps another person with such a Trainz skill set and or PC graphics/benchmarks knowledge could test and determine.
  8. Thank you for the elven protection GianFranco! (fireworks for magic spell) Like the elven cloaks given to the Fellowship by Galadriel and Celeborn, such magic will be used wisely and well. I am continuing to research and am leaning towards Blender; your recommendation is in synch with the (little) research done so far online. I have performed a few general google searches about 3D modeling; Blender looks like it is being used by a lot of content creators who post and mention using it in the auran forums. Thank you for the recommendation. Apologies to all about m
  9. In earnest attempt at moderating or modulating my previous tone or attitude, I need to add that the others who have posted here before me are far more intelligent than I am; beyond their Trainz knowledge DennR, ettore48 (Das Karognenführer), UP844 and jango all have keen minds, remarkable life experience(s) and decades/lifetimes of productive creative capacity and output. Having corresponded with all 4 for a few years, I know this to be the truth (e.g. truthfully, besides ordering a beer in German, I cannot even manage a little meaningful text or words in another language). Having
  10. Important topic here: static locos that look good but have low poly count for scenery use in sessions or routes. Although I have never tried 3D modeling I recognize that static locomotives that look good but are not resource hogs have been needed for some time in Trainz (since long before I started Trainzing). I think I can remember some static locomotive scenery in Ionut Chircu's routes (please do not throw sharp objects at me; I know about some of the issues, both with regard to technical use and copyright ownership, in his work) but they also may have been "static"
  11. I will post screenshots at the Auran forum. I had no idea Sherman 3.2 and the summer version of Rollins 1910 were in the works. Thank you for the good news. As you can tell I am excited to be back with Trainz and TZIT but I will be patient: with much good stock content in the standard version of TRS19 and a good deal of favorite content to import into TRS19 from TS2 Mac, I am going to be busy for a long while.
  12. Hello TZIT! I just installed SH 3.1 and RP 1910 in TRS19 and the routes look incredible and the install process was a breeze! All the hard work and hours put in by all the dedicated folks here at TZIT is greatly appreciated! Thank you very much: great work by all involved! Cheers! Thank you to Jango and all content creation artists, beta testers and everyone who helped make and deliver Sherman Hill 3.1! Having run SH 2.1 (and DP/DPW) for hundreds of hours in TS2 Mac, I am very glad to have SH 3.1 in TRS19. Thank you to Jango and Chris
  13. Thank you for sharing and posting this. Problems facing US passenger rail -- let alone high speed passenger rail -- as this piece says are widespread, have vertical and horizontal economic conflict with many different successful US companies and institutions that stand in the way of change and is now 60-70 years in the making. To make high speed rail a reality in the US lots of $ from federal and state governments and private investment needs to be raised. We need something like all of the investment in railroads that took place in the 19th century when there were
