Hello,
Anyone here from Spain or familiar with Spanish MSTS / OR content and modellers?
I am trying to contact either José Jimenez (jjlor) or Javier Fernández (jflrm) but old e-mail addresses are dead, and there seems to be little recent activity at trensim.com
I would like to get permission to use their model of the RENFE R305 to demonstrate some OR physics.
Alternatively does anyone else know of another MSTS or OR model of an 0-8-0 ( D ) shunting locomotive with jackshaft drive that might be used. Even better if it looks a bit like this one:

The TGM23 looks very much like another diesel it would be useful to have a model of.
The real loco being HE 4551 from this page Hunslet Diesels
Is it possible for you to get permission from the author to upload that model to Peter's Coals to Newcastle website to demonstrate OR physics? (The physics being that for Hunslet Engines 4551 rather than for the Russian loco).

It even was once featured in Thomas cartoon.
(an episode about shunters international competition)
It was produced by plant, produced shunting tank-engines 9п before 1955, as an analogue-substitution for them. It's at Vladimir town.

Ask for permission?
Directly-no, but I can try indirectly.
After all, there is e-mail of author in readme file.
I think, it's better to talk directly, as there could appear questions to discuss.
No need to be "defected phone" for me.
One of authors-Vadim Sutkovoy:
sutvadim [dog] mail.ru
http://sutkovoyv.narod.ru/

There is ТГК1 shunter model, but it uses kardan transmission, rather rods.

Dmitry Kuraxin is involved to historical rolling stock reconstruction as MSTS models.
But just now, I have no idea, how to contact him. Sorry. Guess, he would be glad, though.
