So only those who donated get the beta? Cuz in my opinion, that seems sorta unfair.

The actual train would be released in March, and those who donated to help the development would get it at an earlier date because of their participation in advancing the train's development process, so the train would still be released just those who donated would get it at an earlier date.

If I understand what I read correctly on the last few pages, it's not unfair at all.

The fact that you are getting this quality of work free from the developers is unfair in itself.

Only those who donate get the r142A or is it released to the public.  I wish I could donate but I have a $6000 vet bill. I love the beta of the 68A and 142A.  But financially I'm unable to donate. I also have family to support(2 kids and a wife). Sorry for personal info/going off topic.  I love trains always have since I was a kid. Thanks for the help in advance.

Will the R142A have LED on/off switch lights once it's in the tunnel like the LED on the released R46

One more thing, and it's a suggestion. I know it's time consuming in making a train look it's best when developing but have you guys considered evening out the proportions of those new tech trains? The front A car door on everry A car looks a bit too wide, that's just my opinion. using paint, I edited the look of the train on there so that you can see what I'm talking about. Not to mention it being 1 month away from release so you can see for yourself and judge my edit accordingly.

I understand your concern but no matter how the train looks.. Each and every textures/photo on this train is a real and unedited texture. So the door may look too wide but this is exactly how we got it from the train so making anything smaller wouldn't be accurate.

Adding this feature means a loss of other features, like the half doors function. We decided instead keeping the lights on.
