Thanks! I am having a lot of fun (but also some frustration due to problems that sometimes take hours to solve) getting this tram to work and animating it. :D

I should have noticed it before.... Toronto and St.Petersburg use the same colorscheme on their trams :D
A nice bonus; that creates a good match in an activity with Flexity Outlook trams on T1 and KTM 31's on T2 :P

That is not being planned. The tram is currently build up in a style 'these components are red', 'these components are white', and so on.
Doing a R-Net livery would mean I have to make repaintable textures and assign them to the sides of the tram. That is a lot of work, especially as this is a tram with 5 sections. Perhaps as a later project, but not now.

With the KTM trams it was much simpler; as I started with the KTM23, which is a 1-part tram, making it repaintable was much less work. And the KTM31 was then build on basis of the KTM23, so taking the changed style of texturing along wasn't really difficult. ;)

Well, in reality, these trams have been a political football and a big issue with the TTC, The City of Toronto and Bombardier.

There have been many delays and other issues but the worst is 67 of the super delayed streetcars have welding defects and need to be sent back. At least Sjoerd's tram isn't welded improperly!
Two questions, Will the trams get side destination signs and Will they get run numbers? (On the front of the real LFLRV, there is a LED number displayed, the run number.)
SFMTA does not know how to run a metro system or light rail or streetcar. 8-)

1. Yes, already installed.
2. I am working on it. If successful, they will be present. ;)

That makes the SG3s look bad with their static '562' service number.
