Fine Scale High Detail Construction

The Pacific Electric 1000-class interurban cars were delivered during the Summer of 1913, making the trip from Jewett Car Co., in Ohio, on their own wheels. Shortly after delivery, the 1000 was withdrawn from the class to be rebuilt into a deluxe bussiness car. Afterwards, the class became known as the 1001-1044 class, or as the "Tens" among crews and admirers. These were the last new wooden-bodied passenger cars the PE bought. Total cost for all from the builders was $155,783.91 less motors, controls and other equipment. The Tens' greatest day was the opening of the San Bernardino Line on July, 11, 1914, with great civic celebration and pride in the big new cars.

This was constructed using a modular and "stick-built" method. The curved quarter-panels on the ends made necessary many polygons to get the smooth round contours of the dasher and curved glass caracteristic of the "Herriman"-era cars on the PE and Los Angeles Railway (streetcar lines). Texturing of the car side is tiled across the length from a 256x256 map with road name and numbers applied separately. Renumbering is accomplished by repainting the appropriate maps:

Side numbers: 10011058.ace
End Numbers: 10**Fnum.ace (each car has it's own front number ace.)

The folding door can be opened and closed by keying Ctrl+NumPad 8. The vestibule and left baggage door is operated using the Ctrl+NumPad9 and the smoking section and right baggage door is operated with Ctrl+NumPad7.

!!You must have at least Bin Patch v1.7.1022 installed in your MSTS root folder to use this model or you will get engine file errors!!
