Another 201 variant 29432769_1681313651958529_3276044946957951440_n

As the 201s have been getting a wee bit of upgrading recently (3D wheels replacing the simple faces) and as I discovered some forgotten pics on my old laptop, here's another variant of a 201. Suitably grubby and care worn! This Enterprise livery is now being replaced with a "snazzier" one, but though I don't do NI stuff usually I have seen these locos occasionally in the west of Ireland, on the IWT container trains to Ballina, Co Mayo. Probably finish it off and add it to the 201 loco pack before long.

Another 201 variant 29594949_1687858814637346_6898939668484982435_n

I'm looking at the entire CTS range of Irish locos at present, with a view to improving the appearance. After all, these are mostly over six years old and due for a bit of TLC.
The 141s have been "in the works" and been almost completely rebuilt. All locos (and stock) are getting 3D bogies and many textures are being replaced and better meshes made where needed.

New external for 220 being finished. All the 201s are being upgraded at the moment.

Luck's got nothing to do with it, just sheer hard graft and perseverance!!!
I got another one in the pipeline, quite a bit still to do on it, and it will need a rake of rolling stock later.
It's not so bad using the new common 201 mesh and underside detailing, it pays to get that well done in the first place.

I've completed the loco, generator van, standard cars and rear control car, no buffet car for the set as yet. I've been trying it on Ballyfeckin to Waterford, short video clip here.

Another 201 variant 33398253_1747660781990482_5371170587232174080_n

I've detailed the standard car interiors sufficiently for their purpose.
I detailed the DMUs to a greater extent, because you can "ride" in the cars using F2 viewcam. Because the nearest car to the front of the train is actually the third "car" it isn't a good idea to try and "ride" because the swinging on curves is pretty hairy!!

Orange replacement for 213 finally made. That's the full set as far as I'm concerned.
