My resources are RawMaterialSmokedFish.rsc and RawMaterialSmokedMeat.rsc for the case Red wants to add it to the train.

@RedKetchup, should you ever update the Choo Choo, it would be fun to have the option of older locomotives--those that date from the earliest days of railroads. I love the loco you have, an "American" type that was ubiquitous in the US and Canada from about the 1850s-1880s. I build it after my settlement gets older and bigger. I'm thinking of something earlier that would really give a nice early 19th century feel.

Got to love those free models!!! Yes, building a loco from scratch would be a nasty piece of work. The loco you have is great.

yes they are, when i saw those and saw how i could make them redo and make them in game... it urged me to do it.
even if i redone them.. i need a model. it was easy to have something in my 3d software to copy. it is alot harder when i only have as source a picture with only 1 take. most often you would need to have an half of dozen point of view which help to figure out a 3D of it.

but at that point , i ll try to search if i can find more models and specially more older models.

I wonder if there are people near you, Red, who are into model trains.  Many of them are highly accurate scale replicas, and if there's a model railroad club around, perhaps someone would have an engine they could let you borrow.

bah sometimes there are some homemade program made some coding genius to open some packs and extract some 3D files...
how they cab their files ? which extension ?

with the GE and your tutorial videos,i was abe to take buildings or decorative items from different maps and move them. had a 16x map that was a combination of several different map terrains in 1.a Pleasant Valley with the Idaho maountains in 1 corner and the Old Family Farm map in center plus a couple others.it had like 12 different livestock options and  about 15 crop options.half way around it was different trains and stations. the northwest corner was a huge airport with military jeeps,helicopters,and all kinds of planes and blimps.was different unload points all over.had a racetrack,brach,construction zone,and a drive in movie theater. if you took the 4 wheeler to the top of the idaho mountain,you still couldn't see all the way across the map.
 
    was fairly easy to copy stuff out of maps like buildings and decorations. didn't have much luck tweaking vehicles or trailors thou.been a long time since i played the old FS13.

One potential source of 3D models might be people who are doing 3D printing for model railroads. A 3D printer requires a detailed 3D CAD to do its work. The problem would be twofold: (1) Has anybody done anything historically appropriate (a modern 4300 hp diesel probably not so good in Banished)? and (2) Should anybody have done such a thing would they let you use it for free? I'll look around and see whether there is anything appropriate out there. There are some recent railroad/transport games, but I'm not sure whether their graphics of early locomotives are harvestable or free. Most of the people who do mods for Transport Tycoon and such games are doing more modern stuff.

thingiverse.com has a zillion files for 3d printing, in several formats.  For free.

Nice reference! I checked and there is someone who did a model of the Stephenson Rocket from 1829. The problem is he did it as a kit of over 20 parts, so there is not a drawing of the entire locomotive, only drawings of each of the 20+ parts. Darn!
