Redo (all) (cargo) wagons
The cargo wagons are just a piece of shit now it seems. Buggy gfx, buggy what-can-fit-in-what, etc...
We need, imho, a new set of rolling stock, with proper gfx for ECS and PBI (and FIRS?) Many of the current ones arent very pretty, and perhaps a bit to generic.
The problem however, might be that i know too little about wagons, what can carry what, why, when, how, in what, up where, out of what, etc...
Any imput would be nice, as well as sprites...
Any and all help is appreciated...

I think we shouldn't make wagons too specialized. Something which I like about this set is that you actually can refit wagons and such build a train which can carry cargo in both directions. And given the variety of products, a too high degree of specilization isn't desirable. E.g. wood could come in the form of wood chips (as Nekomaster suggested).

"It seems bit silly to me that both the Silo wagon, and the Hopper wagon can take grain. Not to mention, the hopper wagon has superior capacity in that field, making the silo wagon a useless purchase.
Also, it seems the set needs to take a look at the tropical climate, why can't the boxcar take food instead of the intermediate boxcar?"
the fully loaded livestock wagon has a different alignment compared to the empty one.
