We are officially back with the launch of the Open Side Autoracks Bi-Level & Tri-Level!

Promo Video

A few days ago we announced the launch of this package, however we made mistakes in some design and production details that are as important as the high quality of the product.

If you want to know all the details check out the previous post.

The Main Package Changes

  • All Autoracks textures have been changed from 2K mapping to a single 4K mapping

  • LOD values ​​for all Vehicles spawned in Autoracks have been reviewed and adjusted

  • LOD values ​​are mainly adjusted for the small details of vehicles and autoracks

  • New load variations created: Empty - Half Loaded - Loaded - Fully Loaded

  • Mesh cuts were made on all Autoracks and Vehicles reducing lighting imperfections

  • Now the Tri-Levels have even more variations between them

  • The Bi-Levels also have variations between them, but in smaller quantities (for now)

  • 11 different vehicle models are present in Autoracks in certain load variations

  • More than 40 variations available between Autoracks, the majority of which are Tri-Levels

  • All vehicles can be added to the scenario and each one has more variations

All Open Side Autoracks and their respective versions

Receiving the New Package

If you purchased the previous package, please contact us with your Order ID so we can locate your information and send you the new package.

Machine Rail team highly recommends that you completely uninstall the old version to avoid any type of conflict with the new package, including vehicles.

Available Now:

If you are purchasing the bundle for the first time, please follow the link below to the product page and carefully read all information shown.

This pack requires American Road Vehicles Vol.1 to work properly to avoid issues with missing textures or things like that, so please download it! The link is also on the product page:

We hope everyone enjoys our new release! We rushed to deliver it within the shortest possible time and now everything has worked out. At an opportune moment we would like to have new packages with other models of Open Side Autoracks, perhaps even from other eras...

We would also like to give a very special thank you to everyone who participated directly and indirectly in this project, and all the professional 3D modelers responsible for these beautiful cars, if it weren't for you we wouldn't have such quality in these freight cars; and I don't risk saying the name of each one because it would be unfair to forget someone, but their names are present in the Manual. Thank you very much to all of you.

We are very sorry about what has happened in the last 12 hours since the release of the Open Side Autoracks Bi-Level & Tri-Level package.

We received dozens of direct messages regarding this product and its high level of detail, which is often insignificant. Therefore, we are carefully reworking this package to have a re-release very soon; We thought it would be appropriate to apply some of our knowledge in locomotives to freight wagons, but it became very clear that it was not appropriate! Check out the changes:

LOD (Level of Detail)

*All LODs for vehicle models and the Bi-Level & Tri-Level freight wagon itself are being completely revised and better adjusted. Smaller details will only be seen from a certain distance much closer to your camera.


*At first it looked good, but now we see that it can be improved. So all the textures of the Bi-Level & Tri-Level freight cars are being remade from scratch with new mapping. There were previously four 2K textures for your details, now we work with just one 4K texture.


*We always like to respect real references during our projects, looking at photographs or videography from the time or even reports. Unfortunately this will not be possible with this freight car package. Most of the time, Tri-Levels are loaded with up to 15 vehicles (5 in each level). For TSC processing, this initially seemed to work, but in reality it didn't. That's why we are reducing the number of vehicles in the wagons (in the “Loaded” version we will have a maximum of 4 vehicles per level). This will have a good impact on reducing polygons generated in the foreground.


Wait until this update is released, then you can contact us for a request via Chat here on the website. We will be happy to prioritize this Update for you.

Once again, on behalf of everyone involved in this project and a sincere apology to our friends and customers, we are very sorry for what happened and for our lack of full attention.

We will have the update arriving in the next few hours.

On September 20th we celebrated our birthday!

Machine Rail™ was officially born on this date in 2019!

Check out the products with 35% off:

•1883 DSP&P 2-8-0 Bundle

•1911 EFCB 0-8-8-0 Bundle

•1921 WM BLW H9 Weathered Fireball

•1890 H.K. Porters Bundle

•1893 No.999 & Empire State Express Bundle

•Baltimore & Ohio C-16 Class Bundle

•ICRR 1923 Lima Mikados & Great Freight Fleet

In addition to this special offer, we bring you news of upcoming launches that are currently in constant and delicate development:

4-8-2 "Mountain" • FRISCO T-54 Class

2-8-4 "Berkshire" • Pere Marquette N-1 Class

2-10-0 "Decapod" • Western Maryland I-2 Class

The WM I-2, in particular, is still the same as when we last worked on it in January of this year. Certainly, when we finally turn our efforts to WM I-2 it will receive some significant improvements to its 3D mesh; this should still take a few more months before we finalize FRISCO T-54 and Pere Marquette N-1 since they are commissions and receive priority in this regard.

We have also received some proposals for new commissions, unfortunately at the moment we are closed to new commissions until our queue list, which you can see here, has been completed.

And take advantage of our offer, it only lasts for 1 week!

Well, that's all! We'll be back with more significant updates for you soon.

See you soon,
