BN GP30 set November 24, 2009 - Dynamic Braking update:
These old GM's didn't have a notching dynamic brake lever, but rather a selector lever to engage the dynamic brake grids. Then the engineer could control the braking effort with the throttle lever. MSTS doesn't specifically provide the parameters to achieve this kind of braking, but we have found a way to make it work.
You can run the installer from the link below, or download to your computer and run it from there.

CSX AC6000CW Set May 28, 2007
If you are having trouble running these locomotives without hang-ups in the simulator(when a scene's content exceeds what the simulator can render at one time), try using the main shape file of one of the trailing units, instead of the lead unit shape file. The difference is the trailer shape doesn't have crew figures inside the cab, and they use less sim resources. First delete the lead unit's main Shape file( the larger of the two inside the folder). Now Copy & Paste a trailing unit's shape file into the lead unit's folder and rename it as needed.

Locomotive Lights - January 22, 2006
W
e are in the process of updating the lighting on most of our locomotives The simulator has a limited lighting capacity that can be overloaded by too many of our locomotives in the simulator at one time.

Simulator lighting includes track signals that can be knocked out by too many 'running' lights from 'out of service' locomotives that are in competition with those signal lights. An 'out of service' locomotive includes any locomotive that is not in your train, but somewhere else on the route.

The running lights that need to be tagged in the engine file as 'out of service', are any classification, marker, step, crosswalk, frame, truck, or any other similar lights. The updates won't eliminate these lights, but rather give them a lower priority in the simulator. These lights will be on when a locomotive(s) is in your train, and off when it's not.

This will save your route's track signal lighting and also allow you to use lots of idle locomotives and traffic trains in your activities.

Here's an example of what we are going to change in the engine file's lighting section, should you not feel like waiting for an update> sample

AC4400 CW U.P. #5853 'Building America' Slogo November 19, 2005
Is it black, white, light grey or silver? It should be black on all U.P. AC4400's. The 5853 had a very light grey appearance when measurements were taken. Was it just Nebraska dust? Had the letters faded somehow? Was it primer where the letters use to be? Although the mystery may never be solved, we can satisfy the argument for the black letters by offering the UP5853 textures with the black letters, that we know it had when it left the GE plant. > download
