SOME HISTORY:
The narrow gauge combines of the Denver and Rio Grande Western had a wide and varied history, but none so much as the 212. Built

as a coach in 1879 by Billmeyer & Small, it became combine #215 in 1887. As the 215, it went through a unique modification for

service on the Pagosa branch, gaining a Cupola. After the branch was abandoned, the car retained its cupola until 1941. By 1947,

the roof handrails had also been removed. It became part of the "Painted train" in 1950, gaining its Rio Grande Gold appearance.

In 1964, the baggage section was modified into a snack bar, and in 1979 the car was rebuilt into a coach, with steel siding that

simulated wood. In 1986, it became the concession car it is today on the Durango and Silverton.

This version represents the car as it appeared in service on the Silverton Branch circa 1947-1950, while still painted in pullman

green but without roof handrails.

TO INSTALL:
Unzip D&RGW_Pass_212.zip to a temporary folder; then, move the contents to the
..Train Simulator\TRAINS\TRAINSET directory. Then, build a consist using the
consist editor; the passenger car will appear as "COMBINE DRGW 212".

REQUIREMENTS:
These models were tested on an MSTS-bin system - their high poly-count may make them unstable on other systems.

LASTLY:
These models are unique to the Denver & Rio Grande Western Narrow Gauge - repaints are allowed for personal use, and if you wish

to re-upload, please contact me for permission.
