TS2015 | BR185 – ‘Metronom’ cab conversion (BR101 to ME146)

RSItalia’s BR185 is a very nice looking loco using Kuju’s BR101 cab. With RSC’s release of the Metronom (ME146Pack) a better looking cab became available. It seemed like a good idea to build that cab into RSItalia’s BR185..

I have managed to get this working and made add-ons available for the following repaint packs (by PMdesign):

– RE482 (SBB Cargo) Repaint Pack

– RE485 (BLS Cargo) Repaint Pack

– RE Green Cargo Repaint Pack

When you already have RSItalia’s BR185 Pack v2.1, RSC’s Metronom Pack and one or more of the above Repaint Packs installed you can download the ME146 conversions using the download buttons below:

Download the RE482 'SBB Cargo' ME146 conversions here..

Download the RE482 ‘SBB Cargo’ ME146 conversion V2.1 here..

Download the RE485 'BLS Cargo' ME146 conversions here..

Download the RE485 ‘BLS Cargo’ ME146 conversion V2.1 here..

Download the RE 'Green Cargo' ME146 conversions here..

Download the RE ‘Green Cargo’ ME146 conversion V2.1 here..

PLEASE NOTE: UPDATED versions (2.1). The ME146 cab conversions stopped working due to an RSC upgrade of the ME146. All versions have now been updated to version 2.1.

If you like this add-on you are welcome to donate a small amount by clicking the button on the right. This way I can hopefully recover some of the expenses I make keeping this site up and buying add-ons 🙂 THANK YOU!

    Hi Paul,
    thank you for your work, but I can´t use it.
    I have installed the Green Cargo Repaint from this website, I have the BR 185 Pack v2.1 from amicitreni.net and I have the ME146 from RSC.
    Then I installed the Green Cargo ME146 Cab Pack.
    In the Scenario Editor I can place the usual BR185 and the Green Cargo Locos.
    But I cant place the locos which are named:
    Re (TRAXX F140 AC2) Green Cargo (ME146 Cab)
    there is no texture. Have I do something else?

      David,

      Have you ticked all the right boxes in the editor?

      – PMdesign – RailSImulator
      – RSC – ME146pack
      – RSItalia – BR185
      – RSItalia – Common

      Sometimes clearing the cache helps too.

      Let me know if this helped.

      Paul

        Hi Paul,
        yes I have ticked all Boxes and cleared the Cache too.
        But I can´t use your normal Green Cargo Repaints too (I thought the Reapints of the BR185 Green Cargo (from amicitreni) are yours, my mistake 😀
        I think I have a mistake with the Green_Cargo install:bat
        It says 4 times (in German):
        Der Befehl xcopy ist entweder falsch geschrieben oder konnte nicht gefunden werden.
        In english: The order xcopy is wrong written or couldn´t find.
        Then it says: The needed files are copied and that 4new Versions are availiable.
        I´m such confused 😀

        By the Way:
        Is there a way to copy the needed GeoPcDx files manually?
        The RE_Green_Cargo_Install.bat does not do what should do. At least at my Computer.
        Or do I have installed the BR185 v2 and not v2.1?
        At the moment the v2.1 is installed, but the .bat says I need Amicitreni´s BR185 v2.

    Hallo Paul,

    your Repaints are awesome but there is one probleme. The coupling on your repaints with the ME 146 cab are broken. Everytime when I place a trailer behing the loco then the game shuts down “Railworks.exe doesent work anymore”. Sorry for my bad English, I hope you know what i mean and i hope you can help me

    Greeting from germany

      Hi Steffen,

      That sometimes happens on certain routes when the ‘kuju’ or RSItalia ‘common’ folder isn’t ticked. Please try that. If you still have problems please send me an email at PMdesign@mersel.nl.

      Hi Andreas,

      First you need RSItalia’s BR185 pack, then my Green Cargo and BLS repaint packs and both ME146 cab updates installed.

      Then activate RSItalia, Kuju, PMdesign and ME146 (Metronom Pack).

      It should work like this. Please note that you need to unpack the Metronom .ap file BEFORE installing the ME146 cab patches.

      Hope this helps..

      Paul

      Hi Dean,

      Thanks for your comments.

      The mentioned repaints and cab patches should all work without problems. There are no faults in the files. Many have successfully installed these loco’s. Please closely follow the readme on installation.

      Let me prepare a instruction video for you which I will share later on this site.

      Kind regards,
      Paul

    I have made a short tutorial on installing the Re Green Cargo repaints and ME146 cab conversion. The same principle goes for all BR185 repaints.

    Hallo Paul Mersel .Ik heb een aantal BR 185 en BR 182 ge download Maar nu staan de locs wel in de list met locomotieven in railworks maar ik kan ze niet op de rails zeten. Moet ik misschien iets extra downloaden of in railworks doen. VGR Bryan Schermer.
    ps heb je website ook op de Hcc-trainsimig club laten zien aan onze voorzitter en wil je een keer uit nodige op de club dag.
