Product Demo


Before private aircraft, the private railroad car was the ultimate emblem of status, prestige, and power. They enabled business magnates, movie stars, and the wealthy and well-connected to avoid rubbing elbows with the hoi polloi while traveling. The first example is based on a car built for a railroad president 1916. It remained in service (with occasional repairs and improvements) with the original owner until 1935. This floorplan is suitable for pulp adventures, Call of Cthulhu scenarios, and any other RPG or miniatures game set in the first third of the 20th Century. It might be used by a wealthy patron, a millionaire businessman, a politician, a celebrity, or a well-connected mad scientist.

In addition, this book describes a Mobile Headquarters car, suitable for use by a well-equipped band of adventurers or soldiers of fortune. Both floorplans are presented at 1/60th scale, or 1/5" = 1 foot.

This is the fourth book in a series of deckplan and short adventure books (in PDF form) by award-winning Traveller author Loren K. Wiseman.

This is a good product. It provides two styles of railroad car description: the historical and the base of operations for a player charater team (or villain hideout). I thought I would have images of Wild Wild West running through my head as I read this, [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
