This is a major update to the original F59PH physics mod pack. This release adds the ability to swap out the updated EMD F59PH physics (0:00 and 18:32) with MPI MP36PH-3C physics (6:26 and 25:48) or EMD F125 Spirit physics (12:35 and 32:35). All three test runs seen in this video were done with an identical 7 car set of Bombardier BiLevel coaches and took place between Irvine and Tustin, beginning with a downhill run to Tustin and concluding after the uphill battle back to Irvine. You will notice the difference in speed between the locomotives, and thus, the benefit of having a higher horsepower locomotive.
 
This is the Metrolink EMD F59PH & Companion Bombardier BiLevel Cab Car Physics Modification pack Version 2.0.

 c. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\F59PHPack01\RailVehicles\Passenger\Cars\Driving Trailer\Engine"
2. In each of those directories, you will see three folders (one for each set of locomotive physics):
 a. "F59PH"
 b. "F125"
 c. "MP36PH-3C"
3. Once you choose which set of physics to use, open the respective physics folder in all three directories from step 1.
4. Copy (CTRL + C) all files you find in the opened folder located in directory 1a.
5. Proceed back to directory 1a and paste (CTRL + V) the copied files into the directory; overwrite when prompted.
6. Copy (CTRL + C) all files you find in the opened folder located in directory 1b.
7. Proceed back to directory 1b and paste (CTRL + V) the copied files into the directory; overwrite when prompted.
8. Copy (CTRL + C) all files you find in the opened folder located in directory 1c.
9. Proceed back to directory 1c and paste (CTRL + V) the copied files into the directory; overwrite when prompted.
10. If the previous 9 steps were completed properly, the physics swap should be successful; run TS2015 to check.
 
Thank you for downloading and installing.

Been messin' around on TS2015... does this look familiar to anyone? ;)
 
The TS2015 take on the high speed 165 mph Acela Express late night test runs on the Northeast Corridor, as seen through Princeton Junction station.
 
This is the Amtrak Acela Express Physics Upgrade pack (TS2015 version).
 
In order to utilize this freeware physics upgrade, you must have purchased the Amtrak Acela Express EMU Add-On pack avaliable at Steam: http://store.steampo....com/app/65231/
 
This is a freeware pack; in no way is it to be used for commercial purposes. You are free, however to further modify the physics enhancements found in this pack for personal use if you so choose.
 
THIS IS NOT A SOUND UPGRADE PACK. Physics adjustments made around the existing sounds.
 
The purpose of this pack is to correct some physics errors in the original Acela pack.
 
 
Parameter Change Log:
1. Adjusted tractive effort and braking effort curves based on real world figures available online. Original figures used were much too high and lead to an unrealistically fast train set.
2. Adjusted individual car weights based on real world figures available online.
3. Added the ammeter feature on the HUD, and tweaked the cab TE display to read a maximum of 50,000 lbf of starting tractive effort.
4. Top speed has been unlocked from 165 mph to 205 mph. Based on available power from power cars, balancing speed is 186 mph for 7 car set.
 
For more specifics on the specific values that were changed, proceed here: http://railworksamer...hp?f=31&t=10774
 
IMPORTANT; Install Instructions
 
1. Open the Acela asset pack until the directory reads "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\AcelaPack01"
2. Then open the "Railworks_Acela_Express_Physics_Mod.rar" file.
3. Drag the folder from the .rar file and into the directory you opened in step one.
4. Overwrite if asked.
5. The installation should be complete. Run TS2015 to check.

This is the Metro-North Kawasaki M8 Physics Upgrade Pack, 2015 Edition.
In order to utilize this freeware physics upgrade, you must have purchased the Metro-North Kawasaki M8 EMU Add-On available at Steam: http://store.steampo...com/app/258647/
This is a freeware pack; in no way is it to be used for commercial purposes. You are free, however to further modify the physics enhancements found in this pack for personal use if you so choose.
THIS IS NOT A SOUND UPGRADE PACK. The Leslie RS2M + door sound pack will be released separately from this pack.
The purpose of this pack is to improve accuracy of the tractive and braking effort curves, reflect the TE limit of 15,000 lbf in the on-screen TE monitor, and tweak car weights slightly.
Parameter Change Log:
1. Modified Tractive Effort and Dynamic Brake curves based on 800 kW power rating per car and 15,000 lbf (66.7233 kN) starting effort and 22,500 lfb (100.85 kN) braking effort.
2. Maximum sustainable speed limited to 100 mph via changes to TE curve file.
3. Ampere parameters adjusted so that cab TE monitor display is limited to 15,000 lbf for TE and 22,500 lbf braking effort.
4. Weights modified to match those in manual; A car = 65.7 metric tons, B car = 65.2 metric tons
5. Updated brake pressure specs to prevent stuck brakes after extended operation; also enable actuation of dynamic brakes @ 35% of brake handle position instead of 50%.
 
IMPORTANT; Install Instructions
1. Proceed to open folders until your directory reads "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\M8Pack01\". 
3. Then open the "Railworks_MNR_Kawasaki_M8_Physics_Mod.rar" file.

This is the EMD SD70 Series Physics Modification pack for the SD70MAC, SD70ACe, and SD70M-2. In this video, you will see me demonstrate the changes that I've made to the locomotives to make them perform more realistically. The test consists of 3 locomotives of one class accelerating a 60 car Autorack freight train up to 70 MPH before utilizing only dynamic braking to stop.
 
In order to utilize this freeware physics upgrade, you must have purchased the "SD70 V2 Volume 2 Loco Add-On" pack available at Steam: http://store.steampo...com/app/208365/
 
This is a freeware pack; in no way is it to be used for commercial purposes. You are free, however to further modify the physics enhancements found in this pack for personal use if you so choose.
 
THIS IS NOT A SOUND UPGRADE PACK. Physics adjustments made around the existing sounds.
 
The purpose of this pack is to adjust the locomotive weight, fuel capacity, motor amperage limits, and traction and braking effort values for more realistic operation.
 
The pack purchased from Steam includes the BNSF SD70MAC, BNSF SD70ACe, Canadian National SD70M-2, and Norfolk Southern SD70M-2. Originally, all locomotives in this pack shared a single set of operating physics, making them operationally identical in the game. However, we know that these locomotive models differ greatly in real life. This mod pack differentiates those locomotives in the game.
 
General Parameter Change Log (same for all three locomotive classes):
1. Set fuel tank capacity to 4,900 gallons.
2. Changed HUD ammeter function so that it displays tractive/braking effort in thousands of pounds. This means that if the HUD ammeter reads "157 Amps", the locomotive is putting out 157,000 lbs of tractive effort. Conversely, if the HUD ammeter reads "-34.52 Amps", the locomotive is putting out 34,520 lbs of dynamic braking effort.
3. Adjusted tractive effort ratings and curves for individual locomotive models based on the specifications listed below.
4. Adjusted dynamic brake effort ratings and curves for individual locomotive models based on the specifications listed below.
 
 
Specific horsepower and tractive effort ratings used in calculation for individual locomotive models:
1. EMD SD70MAC (EMD 16-710G3B; 4000 THP)
a. Starting tractive effort of 175,500 lbs (780.663 kN) up to 7.165 mph.
b. Traction horsepower at wheel is 3,350 hp (2,500 kW).
c. Max Dynamic Brake effort of 81,000 lbs (360.3 kN) from 23.845 mph to 3 mph; linear fade from that speed to 0 lbs @ 1 mph.
d. Dynamic Brake horsepower at wheel is 5,145.6 hp (3,840 kW).

IMPORTANT; Install Instructions
 
1. Locate the RSC assets folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC)
2. Open Railworks_EMD_SD70MAC_SD70ACe_&_SD70M-2_Physics_Mod_Pack.rar
2a. Before proceeding to step 3, make sure your "RSC" folder is NOT set to "read only". You can change the folder settings using the properties function. IF the "RSC" folder is read only, the files will not overwrite existing files when you attempt step 3.
3. Drag both file folders ("SD70Pack02" and "SD70Pack03") from the .rar in step 2 into the directory you opened in step 1. Overwrite if asked.
4. The installation should be complete. Run TS2015 to check.
 
Thank you for downloading and installing.
Enjoy =)
