Introducing the second train set for Poser! Inspired by the design of the bullet train and the Acela, this set of electric train cars will further expand your virtual railroad!
This product includes 2 train cars (engine and 1 multi-purpose passenger car), 1 section of straight railway, textures/ MAT poses for each train car, 1 texture for the railway, 6 resize poses for the train cars, 6 resize poses for the railway, and templates for all the models.
Note: The rail section is the same one that is included in the the Train Set 1 product and is included as a convenience for customers who may not have purchased the Train Set 1.
-Passenger car includes 4 textures: Blank Gray, Blue "ComRail", Green "TRW", Red "Rio Bravo".
-Engine includes 5 textures: Red (with white stripe), Red 2 (with black stripe), Blue/ Gray/ White, Blue/ Gray gradient, and Blue top/ Black bottom.
Poses are included to resize the train models (and rails) to the most-common toy train sizes... and back to full-size. Listed in order of size, from largest to smallest:
Note: These are the same poses that are included in the the Train Set 1 product and are included as a convenience for customers who may not have purchased the Train Set 1.
The railroad rails found in this product are accurately scaled to the US standard gauge of 4 ft, 8 1/2 inches (the width between the top of the rails). The length of the rails has been "fudged" very slightly: the exact length of standard rails is 39 feet, which translates to 2.925 Poser units... the rails in this product are rounded off to exactly 3 Poser units long. (This means that you, the user, can simply move the rail model by 3 units and it will line up with another rail model.)
The "US standard gauge" size dates back to the original railroads, and some people claim the size dates back to the time of Roman chariots!
But, no, there is no truth to the legend that the US` space shuttle`s solid rocket boosters (SRB) were designed to be the same width as railroad rails... and, in turn, the same width as the Roman chariots. Yes, the SRB`s are moved on trains, but they`re designed to fit through train *tunnels*, which are significantly wider than the rails` width of 4 ft 8 1/2 inches.
A history of railroad rail gauge can be found on the Trains.com website, at:

Note: The interactive models are shown with rails beneath the train cars. Rest assured that the rails are a separate figure and NOT modelled onto the train cars.
