The K & Ka class NZR locomotive models in 42" NG have been built by Bill Fock (a.k.a Billegulla) and are compatible with TRS2004 and TRS2006

 

Standard K & Ka class locomotives Streamlined Ka locomotive

HISTORY

In 1930 R.J. Gard designed a powerful successor to the Ab locomotive to meet the requirements of the Locomotive Superintendent (later Chief Mechanical Engineer) P.R. Angus. To accommodate a large boiler and at the same time meet the weight restrictions imposed by the civil engineers, the K class used a 4-8-4 wheel arrangement. 

Thirty Ks were built in the Hutt workshop between 1932 and 1936.  They were followed by thirty-five of an improved version (Ka) between 1939 and 1950. 

In terms of power, the K and Ka were the ultimate development of the steam railway locomotive in New Zealand.

TS2009, TRS2006 & TRS2004

 

 

HISTORY

 

Originally 141 of these locomotives were built, not including the two lost on the wreck of the Wiltshire in 1922.

The Ab class was introduced in 1915 and was designed to the requirements of H. H. Jackson by the Chief Draughtsman, S. H. Jenkinson. It was a simple, superheated “Pacific” featuring the cylindrical Vanderbilt tender. Jackson had been impressed with these tenders on a visit to America and it was adopted because of its light weight and economy of construction.

Originally the Ab handled all principal express services and main-line freight services, until the advent of the “K’s” and “J’s” when they were relegated to freight haulage on branch and secondary lines. They were rated to haul 700 - 750 tons on easy grades. Every district, except Wellington, had a quota of Ab’s. Both the North and South Island had the Ab.

NZ Rogers K88

by Bill Fock

TRS2006 & TRS2004 (will work in TS2009 and TS2010)

 
 

HISTORY

 

The 'K' class 2-4-2, K88, or Washington, was built in 1877 by Rogers Locomotive Works, Paterson, New Jersey. It is now one of the oldest operational Rogers built locomotives in the world.

Upon arrival from the USA the 'K' locomotives (one of 2 ordered) were pushed into service. K88 became the first locomotive to ever haul an express train between the fledgling cities of Christchurch and Dunedin, on New Zealands first 'Main Trunk Railway'.

By 1885 the 'K' class had been superseeded and was relagated to branch line and secondary work - sometimes seen banking the expresses out of Dunedin. Around the end of the 19th Century, the 'K' locomotives - including K88 - received a new lease of life hauling tourist trains from Gore to Kingston, on the shore of Lake Wakitipu. This was the original 'Kingston Flyer'.

K88 continued to race across the Waimea Plains hauling tourists to the Lake until the mid 1920's, when she was written off. Scrap metal prices at the time were low, so it was decided to use the old engines as flood protection. K88 looked to have no future, until the early 1970's, when it was remembered that some locomotives had been placed in the Oreti River as flood protection. So, shovels in hand, a group of volunteers set out to exhume a Steam Engine.

'K' 88 has now been restored with its original 'loud' livery of 1877 and to a mainline standard. It now sees regular service on the Plains Railway.

NOTE:

Attempts have been made to contact the original modeller (Greg Baker) for permission to update the model to TS2009/10.

Unfortunately we where unable to contact Greg but believe that he would be more than happy for the update to be carried out and made available. On that basis the updated model is made available with the understanding that if, at a later stage, Greg objects, the locomotive will be removed from TRAINZONE.

 
 

HISTORY

 

Built in 1880 by Dubbs & Co. of Glasgow.

Henry Dubs, was born at Darmstradt, Germany in 1816. Dubs started his locomotive works in 1864 which was destined to be the second largest locomotive works in Britain.

Boilers could last 40 years. The weight over six wheels could put many a larger locomotive to shame when traction was the order of the day. They could pull long freight trains at 40mph on 1-50 grades. A credit to the designer and quality build.

Later models had Westinghouse brakes, steam heating equipment and electric lighting.

HISTORY

The NZR DA class was a class of diesel-electric mainline locomotives that ran on the New Zealand national railways system between 1955 and 1989. With a total of 146 locomotives, the DA class was the most numerous class of locomotives to operate in New Zealand

The DA class was built to operate main-line passenger and freight trains, and some services on secondary lines. They generated 1425 hp (1060 kW), and ran at up to 100 km/h. Although they were not the first class of main-line diesel locomotives to operate in New Zealand (this was the DF of 1954), they were the first class to displace the steam motive power that dominated NZR until the 1950s. They were well-suited to hauling freight and passenger trains, and operated the "Scenic Daylight" service between Auckland and Wellington. When they arrived in New Zealand the tunnels south of Paekakariki on the North Island Main Trunk Railway (NIMT) were not large enough for them and they could not operate into Wellington via the NIMT until these tunnels were enlarged in 1967

HISTORY

The DCP loco’s are a sub-class of the mainstay DC fleet of loco’s used in New Zealand and are used for passenger services by Tranz Scenic. The DC’s were rebuilt from the older DA class during 1978 – 1981 by Clyde Engineering, Australia. They were re-powered at that time, with GM 12-645c engines, which develop 1650h.p. The older DA was 1420h.p. There are 16 loco’s in the DCP class, the running numbers range between 4277 and 4945. This particular model of DCP4559 is currently one of the lead loco’s on the TranzScenic train which runs daily between Christchurch and Picton, South Island, New Zealand.

DRIVING IN TRS2009 / TS2010*

The loco is driveable by clicking on it and pressing button 1. In-cab and outside views by pressing [ …… ] buttons.Front and rear coupler views for yard sessions – zoom in and the letter “F” is on the front coupler, of course, the letter “R” for rear coupler. This helps so you don’t lose sense of which end of the loco is being viewed. Lights = shift + L for dim and L for full. Press “ ; “ key for flashing ditch lights, main lights on first. Best driving performance is obtained in “Cab mode”. While in the cab, the row of switches and corresponding neons do work, but have no actual function – for the thrills only!

*Note,

This model is aimed at TRS2009/TRS2010, not sure about TS2012, but it should work.
I have found that TRS2010 cab FOV visual appearance is a bit weird and the cab looks stretched and distorts when the camera is panned. I would recommend to change the setting in “trainzoptions” file to < -cabviewfov=40 > ( default is 60 ).


RUNNING NUMBERS:

To activate the running numbers in TRS2009 and TRS2010, after placing your loco in “Surveyor”, click on the “ ? “ icon and in the sub panel enter the running numbers. See running numbers above.

N.Z.R. Diesel “LocoStart” Feature – Cab Mode

LocoStart is a feature I have developed to allow in-cab start-up and shutdown of my N.Z.R. diesel loco models for Trainz 2009 and 2010.

Note, this is a feature of my NZR Locos only and is not a stand-alone add on.

 

Features :

1) Locos can be parked and shutdown anywhere, anytime.

2) The function works completely in “Cab mode” (recommended), the loco will still work in “DCC mode”, but with no idle sounds.

3) It is fun and adds a new dimension to the diesel loco driving experience in Trainz.

4) You can have any number of diesel locos parked in the yard without them all creating a din.

 

At this stage the loco is non fuel consuming – I am not yet clever enough to incorporate that feature, but one day!

 

1) Select the loco in “Driver” and press “1” to enter the cab. You will notice a deathly silence.

2) Press “]” once to swing the cam-view around to the start switch panel.

3) Place the mouse cursor on the fuel primer toggle, left click and switch on. An indicator lamp beside the stop button will illuminate.

4) The stop/start buttons are interlocked to this switch, so it is important to switch on first, otherwise no engine start possible.

5) Place the mouse cursor arrowhead on the green start button, left click, press and release. The engine will now start.

6) Press “ [ “ once to swing the camera back to the forward driving position

7) From here, drive the loco normally.

8) To park and shutdown the loco: Return the throttle to 0 idle and apply the brakes “A” to bring the loco to a complete stop.

9) Press “ ] “ once to swing the cam-view around to the start panel.

10) Place the mouse cursor arrowhead on the red stop button, left click , press and release. The engine will now shut down.

11) Turn off the fuel primer switch. The loco is now reset for its next run.

 

* Designed primarily for TS2010, but works in TS2009. Due to new sound file formats and some processes used to create LocoStart, this feature will not work in TRS2006. I am not sure about TS2012 as I don’t have it, but it should work O.K.

The correct numbers for Tranz Rail blue DCP’s are: 4513, 4611, 4628, 4634, 4755, 4761. 4559 is another, but has recently been refurbished and painted in the new Kiwi Rail scheme. Of course, you can select any number you like, but this would not be politically correct.

This model is available in S.G. and 42” versions. The 42” version sits correctly on track kuid’s 47439:38001 and 44640:38003.
I present these models in weathered and “battle scarred” condition.
 

NOTE:

I have found that TRS2009 cab FOV visual appearance is a bit weird and the cab looks stretched and distorts when the camera is panned. I would recommend to change the setting in “trainzoptions” file to < -cabviewfov=40 > ( default is 60 ). This view in TRS2006 is fine and requires no attention.
Also, my own personal preference is to adjust the gamma setting, TRS2009, to 1.25, but the choice is yours.


*Note, this model is aimed at TRS2009/TRS2010, but will work in TRS2006, minus “pull lever” horn function ( use keyboard “H” for horn sound) and no flashing ditch lights.

HISTORY

The DA class locomotive were built by General Motors Electromotive division and origionally designated G12.These loco’s were introduced to New Zealand between 1955 and 1967.A total of 146 loco’s were owned by N.Z. railways . During the 1980’s many were rebuilt as the DC class, but some remained in use as DA class, but given new TMS numbers. Eventually all DA’s were withdrawn from service by N.Z.Railways by 1989. A few were purchased by private groups and still survive today.

ABOUT THIS MODEL:

I have modelled this loco on DA1471 which was one of the later batch which arrived in N.Z. around 1964. Later, this loco was overhauled at Dunedin Hillside workshops and emerged in

the new “Fruit salad” scheme livery and TMS number DA725. During 1989, DA725 was withdrawn from NZR service and sold to a rail enthusiast group who have restored this loco back to DA1471 and its old red and silver/white stripe livery. I have fitted this model with phase 3 bogies and phase 2 controls, also the later dual sliding cab windows.

 

DRIVING THIS MODEL IN TRAINZ 2009 / 2010*:

The loco is driveable by clicking on it and pressing button 1. In-cab and outside views by pressing [ …… ] buttons.Front and rear coupler views for yard sessions . Lights = shift + L for dim and L for full. Best driving performance is obtained in “Cab mode”. While in the cab, the row of switches and corresponding neons do work, but have no actual function – for the thrills only!

NOTE:

I have found that TRS2010 and TS12 cab FOV visual appearance is a bit weird and the cab looks stretched and distorts when the camera is panned. I would recommend to change the setting in “trainzoptions” file to < -cabviewfov=40 > ( default is 60 ).

*Note, this model is aimed at TRS2010, but works in TRS2009 and TS12



RUNNING NUMBERS:

To activate the running numbers in TRS2009 and TRS2010, TS12, after placing your loco in “Surveyor”, click on the “ ? “ icon and in the sub panel enter the running numbers. See running numbers above.

 

N.Z.R. Diesel “LocoStart” Feature – Cab Mode

LocoStart is a feature I have developed to allow in-cab start-up and shutdown of my N.Z.R. diesel loco models for Trainz 2009 and 2010, TS12.

Note, this is a feature of my NZR Locos only and is not a stand-alone add on.

Features :

bullet

Locos can be parked and shutdown anywhere, anytime.

bullet

The function works completely in “Cab mode” (recommended), the loco will still work in “DCC mode”, but with no idle sounds.

bullet

It is fun and adds a new dimension to the diesel loco driving experience in Trainz.

bullet

You can have any number of diesel locos parked in the yard without them all creating a din.

At this stage the loco is non fuel consuming – I am not yet clever enough to incorporate that feature, but one day!

 

To operate “LocoStart” in Cab mode:

 

  1. Select the loco in “Driver” and press “1” to enter the cab. You will notice a deathly silence.

  2. Press “]” once to navigate the cam-view to the start switch panel.

  3. Place the mouse cursor on the start/run isolator, left click and switch on to start/run.

  4. Place the mouse cursor on the fuel primer toggle, left click and switch on. An indicator lamp below this switch will illuminate.

  5. The stop/start buttons are interlocked to this switch, so it is important to switch on first, otherwise no engine start possible.

  6. Place the mouse cursor arrowhead on the green start button, left click, press and release. The engine will now start.

  7. Press “ [ “ once to swing the camera back to the forward driving position

  8. From here, drive the loco normally.

  9. To park and shutdown the loco: Return the throttle to 0 idle and apply the brakes “A” to bring the loco to a complete stop.

  10. Press “ ] “ once to navigate the cam-view to the start panel.

  11. Place the mouse cursor arrowhead on the red stop button, left click , press and release. The engine will now shut down.

  12. Turn off the fuel primer switch. Turn the start/run switch to off. The loco is now reset for its next run.

* Designed primarily for TS2010, but works in TS2009 and TS12. Due to new sound file formats and some processes used to create LocoStart, this feature will not work in TRS2006.

RM56 VULCAN RAILCAR

by Barry Munroe and Trevor Burt

TRS2006

 

This RM56 model is Ex MSTS and was originally built by Barry Munro a.k.a. “Captain Bazza”, who kindly allowed Trevor Burt to convert it for use in Trainz 2006. Trevor has also added a typical cab module.

HISTORY

New Zealand Railways ordered 10 rail motors from the Vulcan foundry works, Great Britain, in the early 1940’s. Several shipments were made to New Zealand as each unit was completed, but one, which was to be RM59, was lost at sea when its transporting ship was torpedoed during W.W.2.
All 9 RM’s were assigned to duties in the South Island N.Z. As far as I know, they were not used in the North Island N.Z., but I could be corrected on this. The diesel motor/transmission was located at the lead end behind the forward driving cab . In its time, this railcar held the railcar top speed record ( N.Z.) of 75m.p.h. , recorded on the Midland line.
Some examples of this railcar still exist. One, RM 50, is preserved at The Plains Railway, Timwald, Ashburton, N.Z. and RM56 , RM57 are preserved at Ferrymead, Christchurch, N.Z.
Trevor created the cab module for the RM56 using photographs of the actual RM56 cab, so must thank the staff at Ferrymead for allowing me to crawl around inside RM56, presently undergoing a flash new re-paint.



RM 56 ready to depart Ferrymead Station, Christchurch, New Zealand.

DRIVING IN TRS2006

The driving choices are DCC or Cab mode. To change cabs forward - rear, press Alt - C.
The speedo does not work in the rear cab when going forwards. This is not a fault, but just one of those things in the sim.
There are multiple views in cab, outside cab/H.O.W. and passenger views by pressing [ … ] keys

Cheers, I hope you enjoy this model in Trainz 2006.

N.Z.R. Articulated twinset 88 seater railcar RM109

by Trevor Burt Copyright © 2008

TRS2006

 

    

History


The railcar is modelled on RM109 in the Coronation red with silver/white cheatstripes livery.

RM 109 was placed into service with N.Z.R. in February 1956 and withdrawn in December 1971.

These railcars were built by the Birmingham Railway carriage and Wagon Co. Ltd., Smethwick Works, to a Drewry design. They were fitted with two horizontal Fiat diesel engines of pre W.W.2 naval design which were never specifically designed to drive a railcar via a multispeed drive.

Throughout their life, they gave many troubles and were very costly to run and maintain, mostly due to engine problems. However, these railcars were popular with the commuting public and the mention of Fiat engines had the masses calling them Fiat railcars.
 

Later on , around 1968 some were refurbished and repainted in a new livery of blue with a violet waistband/striping and intended for a plush new life as the “Blue Streaks” service. However, due to low patronage, this service was short lived and by 1978, all drewry railcars were withdrawn or scrapped. Some did ponder on for a bit longer as engine-less, loco drawn coaches or “grass grubs” as they were called due to their green colour scheme, but come 1985, these too were scrapped.

Someone did think to preserve one or two of these railcars and the Pahiatua Railcar Society, Wairarapa, New Zealand is busy presently restoring at least one of these twinsets. I recommend a visit to their website : http://railcar.netfirms.com/

 

DRIVING IN TRS2006

These models are similar set up to the DM units, i.e. run in pairs of one “A” unit connected back to back with one “A2” unit. When placing in surveyor, the A2 car will be facing the same direction as the A (lead/ driver) car. If you click on the A2 and “rotate train” it will then face back to back, as it should and line up correctly at the central articulated bogie. They can then be connected as one or two pairs. Each unit is driveable by clicking on it and pressing button 1. In cab and HOW and passenger views by pressing [ …… ] buttons.

Note, the cab module is not the actual cab, but I have created something very similar using artistic license.

Both  S.G. and NZR 42” versions available.

N.Z.R English Electric class DM UNITS

by Trevor Burt a.k.a. Fender

TRS2006

 

Trevor Burt a.k.a. Fender originally built these DM models for MSTS, but has converted them for use in Trainz 2006.
They are basic and have no passenger functionality, but they really do look the part in the N.Z. routes

HISTORY

In 1937, New Zealand Railways ordered 6 x class DM units from the English Electric Co. The initial batch were painted in royal blue with a silver side cheatstripe. These units proved very popular and in 1942, further units were placed on order. A few years later, 40 more DM units and 71 D trailers were ordered to cater for expanded services to the Hutt Valley and Paekakariki. Many of these robust units have now been scrapped, but 10 x DM-D sets have been refurbished and kept going to service the Johnsonville line, in fact, they are still running to this day.

On the old numbering system, units DM 1 to 6 ( blue with silver cheatstripe) put into service in 1938,
Units DM 7 to 9 (red) put into service 1946 and units DM 10 to 49 (red) put into service between 1949 and 1954.

N.Z. TranzRail Ganz Mavag Multiple electric units
Models for Trainz 2006 by Trevor Burt a.k.a. Fender. Copyright © 2008

HISTORY

Forty four of these Hungarian, Budapest built units were introduced to Wellington, N.Z. over 1982 - 1983 to replace some of the loco-carriage consists which plied the Wellington suburban areas. They were built by the Ganz Mavag Co. and equipped with G.E.C. electrical traction gear from the U.K. Due to size constraints, they were not granted running rights on the Johnsonville line and to this day, the older DM units still service the Johnsonville line. After having said that, these models can be run on the Johnsonville line in the Trainz sim, where the tunnels ARE big enough - this makes for a unique experience.

N.Z. KiwiRail EO electric loco as refurbished 2009

Models for Trainz 2006 / 2009* by Trevor Burt a.k.a. Fender. Copyright © 2009

HISTORY

Five of these electric locos were built by Toshiba for New Zealand Rail and introduced to the Otira section at Arthurs Pass, New Zealand in 1968. They were originally classed as Ea and replaced the older EO of 1923, but were reclassified to EO in 1980. They serviced the same section of line at Otira from 1968 to 1997, when they were replaced in favour of diesel power. The five locos were placed into storage until 2008, when three were refurbished ( EO45, EO51 and EO74 ) for use on the ping-pong trains which ply the Wellington – Hutt Valley line at peak hours. This is to be a temporary measure until the new Maitangi trains are introduced in 2010. Who knows, they may live on after that !

N.Z.R. FP/FT Class electric multiple units

Models for Trainz 2010* by Trevor Burt a.k.a. Fender. Copyright © 2011  

 

HISTORY

The first of these new units were introduced to Wellington towards the end of 2010. There will eventually be 48 FP/FT units to service the Hutt Valley, Johnsonville, Melling and Parparaumu – Waikanae lines. They will supplement the current Ganz Mavag units and the older DM units will be withdrawn.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

bullet

Traction motors = A.C. via electronic control fed from 1500v.d.c.

bullet

Track gauge = 3ft. 6” ( 1067mm ) Std. N.Z.

bullet

Axle arrangement = Bo - Bo

bullet

Length = 20.7 metres each car.

bullet

Builder = Hyundai Rotem/Mitsui, Changwon, South Korea.

bullet

Classification = FP/FT Matangi

bullet

Running Numbers = 4103,4126,4132,4149,4155,4161,4178,4190…………………….4610.

DRIVING IN TRS2010

The loco is driveable by clicking on it and pressing button 1. In-cab by pressing [ …… ] buttons.

Continue pressing [….] buttons to access the passenger cabin. Lights = shift + L for dim and L for full. Press “ ; “ key for flashing ditch lights, main lights on first.

Best driving performance is obtained in “Cab mode”. Best sounds are in TRS2010.

 

NEXT STATION READOUT:

 

The drivers screen includes a “Next Station” digital readout. To best understand how this works, I suggest you look at the Harlem Line route, session 4. Then create a

new session on the Harlem Line and save it as “Matangi test”. Place your Matangi FP/FT at , say, Brewster station. As you drive your Matangi train along this route, you will

see how the station names change. I am no expert at all the functions, but it would appear a trigger ( green cross ) is required at the entry to the station platform and this is

named “xx_” smallcase. This trigger seems to reset the readout. At the exit of the station platform, another trigger ( green cross ) is placed and named “xxWATERLOO” or

whatever the name of your next station is. This trigger seems to apply the next station name. Install these triggers in your own N.Z. route and see how you go. Test and joy!

The station name is capitals with no underscore after the xx. I have also found that this system is only realistically workable on dual track sections, single track sections works

going one way, but not when returning. You will see what I mean. Someone may come up with a clever scheme around this.

 

 

The trains are built up in FP/FT pairs and may be coupled – uncoupled in 2,4 or 6 car sets. I have endeavoured to create these models as low poly as possible for best

in-game performance, so 4 car and 6 car AI aplenty on the Hutt valley lines should not be a problem. It is best to place the FP car first, then add the FT car. If the FT car

is facing the wrong way, then use the “turn train” tool to correct it.

 

*Note, this model is aimed at TRS2010, but will work in TRS2009 and according to specs, should also work in TRS2012 ( I don’t have 2012 as yet, so cannot test ).

Due to more recent sound file formats and features introduced in TRS2009, the units will not work in TRS2006.

 

RUNNING NUMBERS:

 

To activate the running numbers in TRS2009 and TRS2010, after placing your loco in “Surveyor”, click on the “ ? “ icon and in the sub panel enter the running numbers.

Note, the FP and FT pair share the same running number, i.e FP4103 and FT4103 – this follows through for the other multiple pairs.

 

See the above list for the correct running numbers. You may notice loco number 1 and 8 (look at the 3rd digit) are missing. I do not know why this is, but something to do with

the TMS numbering system ? Perhaps someone could enlighten me.

 

Thanks to:

Bill69 for the many photographs.

PLACING THE MODELS IN TRAINZ TS2009 / TS2010 and TS12*:

These models are similar set up to the DM units, i.e. run in pairs of one “A” unit connected back to back with one “B” unit. When placing in surveyor, the B car will be facing the same direction as the A (power) car. If you click on the B and “rotate train” it will then face back to back, as it should and line up correctly .

 

DRIVING THE MODELS IN TRAINZ TS2009 / TS2010 and TS12*:

The railcar is driveable by clicking on it and pressing button 1. In-cab and outside and passenger views by pressing [ …… ] buttons.

Lights = shift + L for dim and L for full.

Best driving performance is obtained in “Cab mode”.

 

NOTE:

I have found that TRS2010 cab FOV visual appearance is a bit weird and the cab looks stretched and distorts when the camera is panned. I would recommend to change the setting in “trainzoptions” file to < -cabviewfov=40 > ( default is 60 ).

RUNNING NUMBERS:

To activate the running numbers in TRS2009 , TRS2010 and TS12, after placing your loco in “Surveyor”, click on the “ ? “ icon and in the sub panel enter the running numbers. See running numbers above.

 

N.Z.R. DIESEL “LOCOSTART” FEATURE - CAB MODE

 

 

Models for Trainz * 2010 by Trevor Burt a.k.a. Fender. Copyright © 2011

LocoStart is a feature I have developed to allow in-cab start-up and shutdown of my N.Z.R. diesel loco models for Trainz 2009 and 2010 and TS12.

Note, this is a feature of my NZR Locos only and is not a stand-alone add on.

FEATURES :

bullet

Locos can be parked and shutdown anywhere, anytime.

bullet

The function works completely in “Cab mode” (recommended), the loco will still work in “DCC mode”, but with no idle sounds.

bullet

It is fun and adds a new dimension to the diesel loco driving experience in Trainz.

bullet

You can have any number of diesel locos parked in the yard without them all creating a din.

bullet

At this stage the loco is non fuel consuming – I am not yet clever enough to incorporate that feature, but one day!

TO OPERATE "LOCOSTART" IN CAB MODE

 

 

  1. Select the railcar in “Driver” and press “1” to enter the power car A cab. You must start/stop in power car A, once started, you can drive in car A or B.

  2. Press “]” once to swing the cam-view around to the start switch panel.

  3. Place the mouse cursor on the fuel primer toggle, left click and switch on. An indicator lamp beside the stop button will illuminate.

  4. The stop/start buttons are interlocked to this switch, so it is important to switch on first, otherwise no engine start possible.

  5. Place the mouse cursor arrowhead on the green start button, left click, press and release. The engine will now start.

  6. Press “ [ “ once to swing the camera back to the forward driving position

  7. From here, drive the railcar normally.

  8. To park and shutdown the railcar, enter car A cab: Return the throttle to 0 idle and apply the brakes “A” to bring the railcar to a complete stop.

  9. Press “ ] “ once to swing the cam-view around to the start panel.

  10. Place the mouse cursor arrowhead on the red stop button, left click , press and release. The engine will now shut down.

  11. Turn off the fuel primer switch. The railcar is now reset for its next run.

 

* Designed primarily for TS2010, but works in TS2009 and TS12. Due to new sound file formats and some processes used to create LocoStart,

This feature will not work in TRS2006. Sounds and visuals are best in TRS2010.

 

Have fun, cheers,

Trevor Burt a.k.a. Fender.

N.Z.R. Class F 30ft. Steel paneled Guards/Brake van

Models for Trainz * 2010 by Trevor Burt a.k.a. Fender. Copyright © 2010

 

 

 

 

                   

 

HISTORY

This is a steel construction, 2 x bogie guards van with an enclosed rear platform. There were 40 of these vans built in NZR workshops during 1955 and 1956. During refurbishment programmes in the 1960’s, some modifications were made, the most prominent being the installation of triangular styled lookouts. I have created this model according to the original B.P. 26500, but also fitted the triangular lookouts as per wagon F2423 which now resides at Waipara Sleepers, North Canterbury, New Zealand. In fact, I had an overnight stay in this very wagon which has been converted

into a luxury sleep out. On ground are other converted guards vans and the kitchen block is built as an early NZR railway station – most unique. For more info : http://www.waiparasleepers.co.nz

ABOUT THESE MODELS

As there is only one guards van per train, I have let loose with some more polys, so better detail and graphics are applied to this model.

Features include a cabin interior, in-cab sounds and opening/closing doors. At present, TRS 2010 does not have capability for in-cab sounds in passenger cars or freight wagons, so I have built this van as a powered loco in disguise to allow for the sounds to be produced. I just could not cope with riding along inside the cabin with no sounds, no wheel rumble, bearing noise, nothing, just the faint click-clack coming from far away from the track sounds. There are good and bad results attached to this set-up. On the good side, the train can be controlled from the guard’s cabin ( Cab mode only ).

On the bad side, the AI system will see this van as a loco and may do strange things – just bear this in mind if setting up a session, otherwise not a problem. Another point of note, is not to have the van too close to the loco as the loco sounds will cancel out the van cab sounds. I have found about 20 x of my NZR 4 x wheel wagons is a good distance apart to reap the full benefits of the sounds.

To operate the doors – this works in cab mode only – from the default camera position at the left side lookout, use the ] button to advance positionuntil you are in front of the cabin door. Then use the mouse, position the pointer on this door, left click hold and drag back towards you to open this door. Then use the ] button to advance to the left side door. Then use the mouse, pointer on this door, left click hold and drag away from you to slide this door forward to open. Use ] button to step forward a bit for a view out through this door opening. Use ] again to swing around to the right side door. Mouse pointer on this  door, left click hold and drag away from you to open this door. Repeated use of ] button to advance the remaining views. Be sure to be a tidy Kiwi and close these doors after you. Of course, there is button 2 for outside van view.

While researching and building this model, it occurred to me what a cushee job this must have been. Just imagine, lounging back in that comfy armchair, snacking away on crunchie bars while watching the miles flit away into the distance!

*Note, this model is aimed at TRS2010, but will also work in TRS2009. Due to the new sounds format introduced in TC, this model will not work in TRS2006.

Thanks to Ryan McC. for providing the NZR EE class D sounds used in this model.

 

Enjoy,

Cheers,

Trevor Burt a.k.a. Fender.

HISTORY

This model is based on EW1806 which is preserved by Ferrymead in Christchurch. The EW ( Electric, Wellington ) were introduced to N.Z.R in 1952 and servived through to 1988, when they were all withdrawn from service. The loco’s were used mainly for hauling passenger services in Wellington, Hutt Valley and up to Paekakariki – also occasionally used for hauling freight. During the 1960’s the EW hauled carriage trains – up to 10 x AA 2nd class coaches - from Taita into Wellington to help out the crowded DMU’s at peak times. In those days train patronage was high and only a keen few drove their cars into town. I remember back then, these trains were known as “The boneshaker”.

DRIVING THE MODEL IN TRAINZ TS2010:

These models are similar set up to the DM units, i.e. run in a pair of one "A" unit connected back to back with one "B" unit. When placing in surveyor, the B car could be facing the same direction as the A (lead/ driver) car. If you click on the B and "rotate train" it will then face back to back, as it should and line up correctly at the central articulated bogie. Each unit is drivable by clicking on it and pressing button 1.

In cab and HOW views by pressing [ …… ] buttons. Best driving performance is obtained in "Cab mode".

NOTE:

I have found that TRS2009 and TRS2010 cab FOV visual appearance is a bit weird and the cab looks stretched and distorts when the camera is panned. I would recommend to change the setting in "trainzoptions" file to "-cabviewfov=40" ( default is 60 ). This view in TRS2006 is fine and requires no attention.

*Note, this model is aimed at TRS2009/TRS2010, but will work in TRS2006, minus "pull lever" horn function ( use keyboard "H" for horn sound) .

HISTORY

This is an all steel construction, 4 x wheel wagon built in the 1960’s era for N.Z.R. The Kp2 wagons were built up from kit sets from Yugoslavia.These wagons were very rigid, due to the all steel construction, the first batch was prone to bounce and sometimes de-rail. This was rectified with a modified suspension. The double doors on each side provided a 10 foot opening and thus could be pallet loaded using a forklift.

ABOUT THESE MODELS

I have built these NZR freight models with performance in mind. When you consider that a consist could be 30 to 40 mixed wagons and loaded with goods, then it is important not to have each individual wagon too high in poly count and avoid loading down computer resources. These models are therefore low poly, low resolution graphics and minimal detail where not really necessary – e.g. I have not modelled the air brake lines and fittings under each wagon and unless you drive your trains with the tip of your nose on the axle boxes, you will not notice this. Of course, they will not stand up to close scrutiny by the rivet counters and armchair critics !

Loading / unloading:

This model is industry active ( being a covered wagon the goods are not visible, but they are there in weight and report waybills correctly for session handling) and has been configured to load/unload the following goods: Auran General goods, cement bag pallet, Fertiliser bag pallet, Pallet of stockfeed bags, Automotive engines, General Auto parts, hay bales.I have tested this using ” Multiple Industry New ” which comes with TRS2006, 2009 and 2010. If you don’t care for the wagon loading and just simply want to drive with a consist of wagons, then you don’t have to set this up. There is an excellent tutorial for using M.I.N. at:

The Ks “covered” model is industry active ( being a covered wagon the goods are not visible, but they are there in weight and report waybills correctly for session handling ) and has been configured to load/unload the following goods:

bullet

Auran General goods

bullet

Apple pallet

bullet

Fertiliser bagged

bullet

Flour bag pallet

bullet

Fruit pallet

bullet

Orange pallet,

bullet

Pallet of stockfeed bags

bullet

Vegetables (canned) pallet.

The Ks “open” model has one door open to view the visible loads. This wagon is configured to load/unload visible N.Z. General goods, Mobil oil drums and fertiliser bagged.

I have tested this using ” Multiple Industry New ” which comes with TRS2006, 2009 and 2010. If you don’t care for the wagon loading and just simply want to drive with a consist of wagons, then you don’t have to set this up. There is an excellent tutorial for using M.I.N. at: http://members.westnet.com.au/nightcrawler/trainz/tut-mina.htm

** Note, this model uses files common to all in this series of 4 x wheel box wagons, so you must have the “KP wagons” on your system for this model to function.

*Note, this model is aimed at TRS2010, but will also work in TRS2006 and TRS2009

Enjoy

HISTORY

This is a timber construction, 4 x wheel wagon built in the 1940’s and 1950’s era for N.Z.R. I must say, probably the most tidily built of all the wooden stock carriers. These wagons are 20ft chassis and 13ft. wheelbase. They were commonly known as “deckers” due to the two deck flooring and were used up to the late 1970’s , at which time sheep traffic was largely being carried out by road transport.

Of the 1079 wagons built, very few exist today and only some of the private groups have one amongst their stock.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

bullet

Track gauge = 3ft. 6” ( 1067mm ) Std. N.Z.

bullet

Length = 20ft.

bullet

Wheelbase = 13ft.

bullet

Distributed load = variable.

ABOUT THESE MODELS

I have built these NZR freight models with performance in mind. When you consider that a consist could be 30 to 40 mixed wagons and loaded with goods, then it is important not to have each individual wagon too high in poly count and avoid loading down computer resources. These models are therefore low poly, low resolution graphics and minimal detail where not really necessary – e.g. I have not modelled the air brake lines and fittings under each wagon and unless you drive your trains with the tip of your nose on the axle boxes, you will not notice this. Of course, they will not stand up to close scrutiny by the rivet counters and armchair critics !

Wagon numbering:

These wagons feature auto-numbering using ElDavo’s number it script/library, Kuid2:75134:99003:7, this comes with TRS2010 and TRS2009.

Loading / unloading:

The Jc wagon is configured to load/unload visible N.Z. sheep, of course ! I have created my own N.Z. sheep commodity which comes with this download.

Also, included are N.Z. sheep (objects) and two sheep/cattle yards of N.Z.R. style.

I have tested this using ” Multiple Industry New ” which comes with TRS2006, 2009 and 2010. If you don’t care for the wagon loading and just simply want to drive with a consist of wagons, then you don’t have to set this up. There is an excellent tutorial for using M.I.N. at:

N.Z.R. Yc Ballast Wagon

Models for Trainz * 2010 by Trevor Burt a.k.a. Fender. Copyright © 2011

 

 

HISTORY

This is an all steel construction, 4 x wheel wagon built in 1959 and onwards for N.Z.R. Most of the early batch were built at Eastown workshops and the later batches were built at Addington.

They were used for ballast distribution in between the rails. Another design – Yf – were used for ballast distribution outsideof the rails. These wagons are no longer used by N.Z.R., but many still exist today in the hands of enthusiast railway groups.

 

TECHNICAL SPECS

bullet

Years built = 1959 onwards

bullet

Number in class = Not sure, but lots !

bullet

Track gauge = 3ft. 6” ( 1067mm ) Std. N.Z.

bullet

Length = 21ft.

bullet

Wheelbase = 13ft.

bullet

Capacity = 107 cubic metres.

 

ABOUT THESE MODELSy, low resolution graphics and minimal detail where not really necessary – e.g. I have not modelled the air brake lines and fittings under each wagon and unless you drive your trains with the tip of your nose on the axle boxes, you will not notice this. Of course, they will not stand up

 

I have built these NZR freight models with performance in mind. When you consider that a consist could be 30 to 40 mixed wagons and loaded with goods,then it is important not to have each individual wagon too high in poly count and avoid loading down computer resources. These models are therefore lowpol

to close scrutiny by the rivet counters and armchair critics !

 

LOADING / UNLOADING

Due to difficulties in modelling an animated load of ballast – just where do you unload ballast in Trainz ? – I have created two models. One is loaded, the

other is empty.

*Note, this model is aimed at TRS2010, but will also work in TRS2006 and TRS2009.

 

Enjoy,

Cheers,

N.Z.R. Fell Brake Van

(original model  for MSTS by Captain Bazza)

TS2009 / TS2010 / TS12

N.Z.R. Fell Brake Van

Models for Trainz * 2010 by Trevor Burt a.k.a. Fender. Copyright © 2012

 

 

HISTORY

These Fell brake vans were built for use on the Rimutaka Incline and later used on the Rewanui Incline.. They were operated by an Incline Guard during descent on the incline.

A hand wheel was wound in to force the brake blocks against the raised centre rail. Wear on these blocks was severe and they had to be replaced after each round trip. This kept the fitters at Cross Creek very busy for they had to replace the brake blocks on five Fell engines also.

TECHNICAL SPECS

bullet

Years built = 1898

bullet

Number in class = 7

bullet

Track gauge = 3ft. 6” ( 1067mm ) Std. New Zealand

.

 

ABOUT THESE MODELS

This model is ex MSTS and was originally created by Barry Munroe, a.k.a. Captain Bazza, so thanks to Barry for his source files.  These vans are tiny, so can not be compared in size to NZR freight wagons for example.

.*Note, this model is aimed at TRS2010, but will also work in TRS2009 and TS12.

 

Enjoy,

Cheers,

Trevor Burt a.k.a. Fender.
