Aha! but AP got access to all the source files to DT's mk1 & mk2e models(as I recall reading) when they took over the rights to sell the Mk1 and Mk2e packs. Also the 'one whom shall not be named' & closing shop soon also produced Mk2 related items and I believe he made the CIG / VEP for RSC even though it is totally a Railsimulator.com product. Therefore RSC have at least 2 different options for contracting out some conversion work, and with one of them not having to deal with a shop in the New Year I'll place my bets in 'that' direction. :wink:

Just seen this go up on AP's facebook:

Seems to be nearing completion from what it seems, though I can't possibly think what they have left to do that makes it WIP. :)

Yes, seen the video, looks damn awesome... If the 90 pack was anything to go by, expect the 321 to come out either this weekend, or early next week.... AP usually puts up videos when it's nearly out the door, so to speak...

Just a heads up, it'll probably disappoint you if you go by how the 90 was released- there's still a lot to refine just yet.

So long as Jordi/AP address RSC's shortcomings in the c321 area it'll be worth the wait :)

Saying that I can cope with the RSC c321 for now, it looks good, but the cab isn't quite 'right' & I'm not sure what unit / operator they've got their research from !

The main annoyance is the limited head turn view from the cab, like the c101 ... because the designers have not bothered to create the drivers back wall or door thru to the carriage ...

The RS 321 is even more rubbish than I expected. Its using the original 455 sounds, inc a 455 compressor which sounds ridiclus on a 321 and the physics are totally wrong as we as driving position etc. I only brought it because i "had" to in other words because it will be required for scenarios as AI.

As I keep saying and Jordi and Rich you are doing a blinding job, the RS version is like a Hornby "Toy" compared to the AP version which is like a Bachman "model".

The AP website or Facebook page is probably the best place to check

You know what AP should make next? A 315. This completes the GEML fleet.
