ARRRR, matey! R1 that is...
Another historic subway car rolls out of the ProTrainz workshops. The R1, the first subway car designed and purchased by the City of New York, is now available as a "preview" item to ProTrainz Gold Members. These classic cars feature rattan seating and operating fans (along with operating doors, directional lighting and visible passenger support, of course). Automatic Route selection (based on 1948 routing) is available, so you can have your train automatically change destination signs at the end of each run (try and get the conductors to actually do that!). And, of course, the correct "local" or "express" designators light depending on your route selection. Complete with drop-sash windows (though for the riders safety, they must remain closed at all times), this is the most detailed subway car we've created to date.

For those of you who missed the train...

Those lucky enough to order the Subway Construction Set CD have had this for a while, as have our Gold Members, but now it's available for everyone. The IRT R12, in its original paint scheme. Complete with working fans (good luck finding them on the originals), selectable routing, and all the other fine features you've come to expect from ProTrainz creations. Available on the Auran Download Station.

The Subway Construction Set!

Based loosely on the NYC subway, this amazing collection of over 60 objects will allow you to create your own semi-realistic subway in Trainz. Available for download from the Auran Download Station, most items can be found by looking for the Subway Construction Set graphic, though some of the older 3rd rail track items don't have it.
