  • I was thinking of painting a boxcar marked "NABISCO".
  • Like that huh??

    J Trane
  • No, more like a modern boxcar that just has the logo on it, and maybe something like the website, too.

  • Try TGA Tool....It converts the ACE files to a bitmap then use MS Paint to edit it....

  • Thanks! I'll try it out.
  • How do you get the locomotive/car to recognize the .tga file.  I tried reskinning the Auran DD40X from 6901 to 6936, but it won't recognize the file.  It still shows up as 6901.
