Steve Dunham’s Trains of Thought

Original 3D models in Steve Dunham’s Blue Comet Lines extension Microsoft Train Simulator route

These are simplified, mostly low-polygon models. For example, the stairway railings, the windows and doors, and some of the roofs are 2D. The platform canopies are generally shorter than the real thing, with fewer, simplified support poles. I needed to keep the models simple to remain within the limits of my computers. Are they worth uploading to the TrainSim.com file library?

Concrete platform with canopy

Concrete platform with canopy—not a model of any particular station; for some stations, such as this one, the canopy ends are squared off, and I realized later that some of the photos were showing canopies that probably had been shortened from their original length

Embankment stations

A pair of mirrored embankment stations, not based on any particular station; I made them for places where the CNJ mainline was on an embankment but I had no idea of what a station looked like



Fanwood

Fanwood; looks sort of like the real thing, though some of my homemade textures are a little bland
