where is the pantograph? will it be added or will the Class 378 only run with 3rd rail?

I'm planning all three length variants. The pantograph still has to be made.
There is also no drivers cab yet.

Looking nice, looking a bit blocky on sides though, but the front is looking good.

By the way, I created Class 378 for Microsoft Train Simulator 10 years ago (in my MSTS days):

It is a very small map; two straight tracks about 300m long, one with powerrails and one with overhead wire. Made just to test functions of rolling stock like animations and cab functions. I needed a map that would load nearly instandly for this, as calibrating animations like the pantograph requires a lot of testing, modifying the programming, testing again, and so on.

So using Rijndam, Simvliet, Glasgow or Toronto for this would just be a little too slow; all I need from it is to load fast, render the train, test a specific function, and close again. ;)

Freshly installed (and tested); a Scharfenberg coupler and (the outside) destination displays;
