This is the update to both the HHP-8 and Acela physics mods for TS2016 (12/1/15). Main change is that the Signature JohnS brake fix has been applied to both trains / locomotives. Players may now select any position between minimum reduction and suppression on the auto brake handle among other minor changes. For more information, be sure to read the readme text files that are provided with each mod. Enjoy =)

Considering this was my first run along the line, it wasn't too bad. The developer did a great job with the train scripting; the blend braking is almost perfect, better than anything DTG has done with American equipment. Makes me feel that if someone with this level of skill could develop the NYC Subway System for RailWorks, it would come out pretty decently.

Here is the preview for the sound portion of the Dash 8-32BWH mod package. Sounds were tested on the P32AC-DM and are sourced to Callum Beatson for the no-HEP engine sounds and sound code, and to Chris Reynolds (MilwaukeeNorth418) for the new K5LA horn recording. I also take no credit for the last two image thumbnails; credits go to the respective photographers behind those photos.
 
I have not yet decided whether I will be porting these sounds over to the P32AC-DM as a mod update or the P42DC versions. If I do, I will announce it.
 
Stay tuned for the sound and physics mod release announcement. Enjoy =)

Enjoy this mod development tutorial:
 
This is the DTG Feather River Canyon Locomotive Physics Modification pack version 1.0 
 
In order to utilize this freeware physics upgrade, you must have purchased the "Train Simulator: Feather River Canyon Route Add-On" pack available at Steam: http://store.steampo...com/app/376932/

This is NOT a mod pack. That full mod pack MAY be available separately from this one (if I deem it necessary to create one).
 
The purpose of this pack is to adjust the physics performance of the two diesel locomotives that come with the DLC (EMD F7 & GE U30B).
 
List of general changes; specific changes for each specific locomotive located below:
1. Modified tractive effort and braking effort curves.
2. Modified power ratings @ alternator and @ wheel.
3. Modified fuel capacity.
4. Modified weights.
5. Removed coupler slack.

b. Continuous tractive effort of 64,000 lbs (289 kN) @ 10.7 mph
c. Dynamic Brake effort of 40,000 lbs (178 kN) @ 26 mph; extended range sawtooth curve between 26 mph and 8 mph. Fade to 0 lbs @ 0.5 mph.
d. Wheel horsepower of 2,700 hp (1,881 kW) @ 20 mph
e. Maximum speed of 70 mph
  f. Engine RPM range = 550 - 1050
