Description
# 3D Model Features:

# Model and Geometry:

-high quality 3d model of the TGV power car ideal for close-up
-geometry is polygonal quad/tris.
-the model is corectelly scalled according to real world scale:
        
        locomotive length ~2250 cm
        Power pole height ~800 cm
        Railway Track (1 track) ~2400 cm
        Railway Gauge width: 143,5 cm (standard used in europe, usa, canada, north africa and moyent orient )
      
-Tileable railroad track and Power Poles (after cloning move the track 2409,5 units to get the exact tile position and 2400 units for power poles).
-2 models of pantographs included the 1500v and the 25000v.
-all parts correctelly named and grouped scene is organized using layers (Controllers,Lights & Cameras, Rails Road and TGV).

-model statistics:(scene)
        polycount:583080.
        vertices:594933.

-power car and all linked parts (including pantographs)
        polycount:276170
        vertices:273365        

# Materials and textures:

-all materials are included (shader used are MentalRay Arch& Design)
-all materials correctelly named.
-all textures are included.
-all textures correctelly named.
-textures resolution range from 426x212 for small parts to 6144x6144 for big parts.        


# Lighting setup, envirenment, effects:

-the model is rendered using Mental Ray Render.
-the model is render ready no post production needed to obtain the result you see in thumbnails.
-lighting setup available for .max format only (see screenshot on thumbnails).
-the light setup is done using Mental Ray Daylight System.
-no 3rd part (plug-ins) needed to open or render.

# Rigging:

-pantographs are fully rigged and ready to animate only .max format .
-open and close the pantographs using controls sliders.
-the cable folow the pantograph motion (using skin modifier)
-see the animated thumbnails ( thumbnail n°8) to see 72 frames demo pantograph animation.

#Additionals notes:

-this model is designed to be used with 64 bit applications.
-the amount of Memory (Ram) used during the render for the full scene can reach 2 GB-3 GB for a resolution of 1600x1600 or up.
-1 GB is required for the scene without rail roads.
-you can still use 32 bit applications (<= 3GB of Ram) but you need to disable displacment map for rails roads.
-this model was tested with 3ds max 9.0 (64 bit) , 3ds max 2012 (64 bit) and 3ds max 2013 (64 bit).
-this model may not work ok with 3ds max 2011.

# Model Hystory

The TGV Atlantique (TGV-A) is a class of high-speed trains used in France by SNCF; they were built by Alstom between 1988 and 1992, and were the second generation of TGV trains.

Modified unit 325 set the world speed record in 1990 on the new LGV before its opening. Modifications, such as improved aerodynamics, larger wheels and improved braking were made to enable test run speeds of over 500 km/h (311 mph).
