Recommended Posts

You can now operate the Acela for OpenBVE:



Here is the updated Acela Trainset for OpenBVE. Included are 6, 7, 8, and 10 car sets:


More details are in the readme files.

Suggested routes to use:





This release is made possible by Manuel Mejias, who modeled the train exteriors. http://www.trenesvenezolanos.blogspot.com

Some NYC subway work:



Current as of 8/11/14. There are two distinct packs for release here; one for regular OpenBVE users, and another specifically for developers.



OpenBVE New York City Subway Fictional R153 With NTT Propulsion Mods (Alstom ONIX, Bombardier MITRAC 1508C, and Siemens SITRAC) Pack:


This is a sound and physics pack ONLY; I take no credit for the R153 exterior or cab, which was created by:

Original Train Programming - Blue18 (Lakiem Williams)

Original Train Sounds - Blue18 (Lakiem Williams), PuertoRican88 (Michael Garcia)

Exterior/Interior View - PuertoRican88 (Michael Garcia), Rikabs, D60HFMAN (Michael Bradshaw), Nyctrman (Randy Puello)

Train Cabs - Emil Luk (Mr. Railfan), Max Diamond (MC Hammers)

Sign animations - CT1660 (Chris Torres), Nightmare403 (Takeem Carter)

Additional Contributors - rstar (Armondo Toribio)


All sounds pulled from existing OpenBVE rolling stock; I take no credit for sound recording.


Motor sound timing and physics edit credits to me, Mike Kam (Fan Railer)


To install, simply copy and paste the folder found in the .rar file into your openBVE train folder.


This pack comes with the R153 using the R160A Alstom cab & equipped with the following propulsion:

-Alstom ONIX propulsion (R160)

-Bombardier MITRAC 1508C propulsion (R142A, R143, R188)

-Siemens SITRAC propulsion (R160B Siemens)


The trains come in 2, 4, and 8 car sets for all three propulsion sound sets.

Trains also come with new or old brakes, as specified by the folder title.


Enjoy =)

-New and Old Brake Shoe sounds


You will find that the train.dat and sound.cfg files are already programmed and preconfigured so that you can simply drag drop into any pre-existing train that you have.


Enjoy =)

Here is a unique comparison video that I recorded from my computer screen. On the left, you have a video, shot by me, of a 10 car LIRR M7 train departing Flushing, and on the right, you have a 10 car LIRR M7 train departing a virtual station in OpenBVE.


With the knowledge that the LIRR has somewhat limited the acceleration of the M7 to lower power costs, I have created a separate set of "performance-limited" physics for the M7 to match real life limited performance. And if I say so my self, I've got it pretty damn close.

Major progress of the Bombardier M7 EMU for openBVE. Seats have been added, as well as the luggage racks, and the bathroom exterior among other things. Development on the 3D cab has also begun. Stay tuned for much more in the near future. We are still on schedule for a release sometime between Christmas Day and New Years Day. Enjoy =)


Many thanks to Manuel for putting in long hours of hard work with me to make this possible ;)

Here is a preliminary preview video of the WIP 3D cab for the Metro-North Railroad Bombardier M7 EMU. Kudos to Manuel for putting in the enormous amount of time and effort to generate this cab. A few more tweaks, and this will be ready for download. Stay tuned folks =)

After a long development period, I am pleased to say that the long awaited Long Island Rail Road & Metro-North Railroad Bombardier M7 EMU Pack V1.0 for OpenBVE is completed and ready for release. Scheduled release time is 12:00 PM noon time, 12/24/14. Stay tuned, and Merry Christmas =)

Here it is as promised. Enjoy, folks, and have a Merry Christmas =)



After a long development period, I am pleased to present to you the long awaited Long Island Rail Road & Metro-North Railroad Bombardier M7 EMU Pack V1.0 for OpenBVE (Initial release 12/24/14).


This train is highly detailed and advanced. Keep reading for full details.


The M7 electric multiple unit was built in the early 2000s for both of the MTA's commuter railroad agencies; the LIRR, and MNCR. This pack comes with both versions of the M7. Painstaking care has been taken to differentiate both models from each other, which goes far beyond just having different paint schemes; note the differing seating layout, cab signal aspect displays, third rail pickup shoe mounts on the trucks, and the presence of traction motor blower air scoops on the MNCR M7 which are not present on the LIRR M7.


In addition, hours of coding were put in to animating the 3D engineer's cab. Note that the cab's train status and diagnostic displays are semi-animated/semi-functional.


Finally, note the placement of the cab doors throughout the consist; the end cars will have their cab doors closed, while the middle cars have them open.


The cab signalling on version 1.0 is not yet functional, but as soon as a route is coded that can make use of the cab signalling system, a plugin will be drafted and this pack will be updated to version 2.0.


Version 2.0 will also include animated destination signage and a detailed lavatory.


This pack comes with two versions of the M7 physics set; an unlimited and a limited version. The unlimited version sports the full acceleration spec as delivered by Bombardier, while the limited version features slightly toned down acceleration in order to lower current draw from the third rail.


Credits list:

-Sounds: Fan Railer (Mike Kam)[general sound programmer] & William McMorris [high quality announcement chime, buzzer sound, & combined throttle/brake controller "click"]

-Engineer's Cab (3D): Manuel Alejandro Mejias Palacios

-Exterior model: Manuel Alejandro Mejias Palacios

-Physics: Fan Railer (Mike Kam)

-Project coordinator & BETA tester: Fan Railer (Mike Kam)

-Invaluable reference material (for physics): Gregory Grice


IMPORTANT: Please do not redistribute this train pack. This pack is only to be made available via sanctioned sites, ie, BVEstation & Fan Railer's Mediafire page.


Technical information:


Power system: 750 VDC Third Rail

Axles arrangement: Bo'Bo'

Service weight (empty): 126,808 lbs

Starting acceleration: 2.0 mph/s

Continuous acceleration (unlimited): 2.0 mph/s @ 35 mph ; 0.5345 mph/s @ 100 mph

Continuous acceleration (limited): 1.5 mph/s @ 47.5 mph ; 0.5345 mph/s @ 100 mph

Full service brake rate: 3.0 mph/s

Emergency brake rate: 3.355 mph/s

Rated power (per car): 1080 hp

Service speed: 80 mph

Maximum design speed: 100 mph

Gauge: 4 ft 8.5 in

Length between couplers: 85 ft 0 in

Vehicle Width: 10 ft 6 in

Rail to Roof Height: 12 ft 11.5 in

Distance Between Truck Centers: 59 ft 6 in

Truck Wheel Base: 8 ft 6 in

Wheel Diameter (New): 36 in


Essential Operating Tips:

For openBVE purposes, this train has 6 power points, one for each major cab signal limit. Each point will increase acceleration proportionally.

P1 - 15 mph (24 km/h)

P2 - 30 mph (32 km/h)

P3 - 45 mph (72 km/h)

P4 - 60 mph (96 km/h)

P5 - 80 mph (128 km/h)

P6 - 100 mph (160 km/h)


For openBVE purposes, this train has 6 service brake points.

B1 - B5 are dynamic brake only.

B6 begins to blend in friction brakes to achieve full service brake rate of 3.0 mph/s.


Thanks for downloading and enjoy, and also, have a happy holiday season =)

Introducing the M8 single car (S Car). Also demonstrated is how to raise and lower the pantograph; hit "3" to turn ATS off and lower pantograph, hit "2" to turn ATS on and raise pantograph.

Singles, singles everywhere lol. 7 car train with two triplets and a single car in the middle. This configuration is also one of the only configurations where the 4 motor cars and 3 trailer cars on the train actually correspond to the correct exterior, due to openBVE's inflexibility in where it actually places motor cars and trailer cars.

Metro-North Railroad Bombardier M7 / Kawasaki M8 Frankentrain Pack for OpenBVE.


Ever wanted to operate an M7 train on a route with overhead wires but no third rail? Now, with the advent of the M8 single trailer car, you can =D


This train is highly detailed and advanced. Refer to the M7 readme for all the relevant info.
