Just texture it, it'll never load if you code the whole thing

It's still a Google Sketchup model(the conversion process is tricky, but can be done), and from the looks of it it looks like it has roughly 300+ polygons. I wouldn't use it, however, until the original author grants permission. If not, then it's squashed.

Half of the model is made out of PNG images which use alpha channels to make the trusses, railings, etc. transparent, so it would appear is if it is intricate object work, mostly like what we do here. But like Ray said, it still has too many polygons to ever generate positive results on most computers.

Still, it could be used as a basis for much more objects along the Northeast Corridor route.

I suggest you take ray's suggestion and just texture the sides.  They'll be a bit more flat, but it will be million times easier to make.

Just to let everyone know, that the screenshots are Google Sketchup models, NOT BVE models.

found Penn Station

Completely unusable. I would suggest making your own models instead of using the Google 3D Warehouse.

They even created the lower concourse levels. That's got to be well over 20,000 polygons, almost twice as much faces if it were converted to BVE format. Not only that, Old Penn Station was demolished in 1964(minus the tracks and platforms) and was replaced with the current Madison Square Garden complex. You'll have to dig through 47 years of of archives to find enough information(if the city didn't demolish it, then there wouldn't be a problem).

That model cannot be used for OpenBVE. Period.

This is actually a very ambitious project. No one here - as far as I know - has really attempted anything like this but if you have the know-how and the determination for it, go for it.

This is one of the projects that I really would like to succeed.
