The current freeware content catalogue contains pretty much everything to form the most common trains you see on our tracks, but what about the more specific and obscure wagons? In the past, one of the locations to get those for Trainz was the website trainworks.eu, but since trainworks needs to make room on their webspace, we are happy to host their Trainz downloads from now on.
Additionally, we reached an agreement with the author Topae who made most of the content for trainworks allowing us to modify and update his rolling stock. We are thus happy to welcome obscurities like the Zagkks gas car, the Apm observation car or the Lails transporters from operators in Germany and its neighbouring countries on Trainz.DE and later, the Trainz Downloadstation.
Besides the old versions of the vehicles we want to offer updated versions that have been ensured to work flawlessly in TRS19 and been fitted with additional features where applicable. The first package will consist of some vehicles that have never been uploaded to the DLS previously and will be available to multiplayer games for the first time. We thank yuz6099 for his help in creating the first set up updated wagons as well as Topae for the permission to do that.
We hope to not only keep older content alive but also improve the process of finding freeware downloads by creating one central German filebase.
The downloads will soon be available here and we will send out a notice when they have arrived on the DLS, but we can't make any ETAs as to when the process will be finished because much like the integration of the filebase entries from the old TrainzDepot.net website, this is a slow and manual process for us.
