Welcome aboard the UP 844 Feather River Canyon excursion. We will be taking a consist of 24 cars up the 1% grade from Oroville to Keddie Wye and back. Settle back and enjoy the trip =)

Table of contents:
0:00 - 30:20 - Assembling the consist in Oroville Yard and proceeding to Oroville Depot to pick up passengers.
32:08 - 3:44:12 - Departing Oroville, 844 powers up the 1.0% ruling grade towards Keddie. Along the way we experience an issue with the water pump from the auxiliary tenders, necessitating a slower than normal speed and a short stop at Paxton to trouble shoot.
3:44:12 - 3:56:53 - After correcting the issue at Paxton, we continue the final few miles to Keddie.
4:00:20 - 4:13:44 - Following a brief breather stop at Keddie, we reverse the train over the wye in preparation for the return trip.
4:14:50 - 6:50:40 - The return trip downgrade to Oroville.
6:50:40 - 7:10:51 - Bringing the train back to the yard and laying up the locomotive.

READ FIRST (EXPAND):
Section 1: 0:00 - 17:58 (Phase V w/ HEP sounds on NEC)
Section 2: 17:58 - 27:59 (File manipulation)
Section 3: 27:59 - 48:54 (Pepsi Can w/ no-HEP sounds on San Diegan)
You tell me which sounds better =)

This is the Amtrak GE Dash 8-32BWH Sound & Physics Modification pack version 1.0

In order to utilize this freeware physics upgrade, you must have purchased the "Train Simulator: Amtrak Dash 8-32BWH Loco Add-On" pack available at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/376931/

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 both a sound AND physics mod.

The purpose of this pack is to adjust the traction characteristics values for more realistic operation. It additionally replaces the default horn and bell sounds with files that are authentic to the locomotive.

This pack includes the option to operate with or without HEP (changes acceleration characteristics and prime mover sounds).

Credits to Callum Beatson for the no-HEP engine sounds and sound code, and to Chris Reynolds (MilwaukeeNorth418) for the new K5LA horn recording.

General Parameter Change Log:
1. Weight set to 274,890 lbs.
2. Traction characteristics adjusted; see below for more details.
3. Dynamic brake values enhanced.
4. Blend air-dynamic brake delay increased to 10 seconds (originally set at 0).
5. Replaced horn/bell sounds.
6. Includes no-HEP sound pack.
7. Removed coupler slack on Superliner cars.

Technical specifications for the Amtrak Dash 8-32BWH:
1. GE Dash 8-32BWH (GE 7FDL-12; 3300 GHP); HEP version
a. Starting tractive effort of 60,260 lbs (268.054 kN)
b. Continuous TE of 38,500 lbs (171.26 kN) @ 26 mph
c. Wheel horsepower of ~2,450 hp (~1,830 kW) @ 30 mph; assuming ~200 kW HEP load
d. Maximum traction amps = 1800 (60,260 lbs)
e. Dynamic Brake effort of 37,390 lbs (166.319 kN) from 41 mph to 9 mph
f. DB resistor grid rating of 4,084 hp (3,047.76 kW)
g. Max brake amps = 900 (37,390 lbs)
h. Maximum speed of 103 mph
i. Engine RPM range = 400 - 1050
j. RPM change rate (rpm/second) = 20
k. Fuel consumption range (gph)= 4 - 158
l. Fuel capacity = 1,800 gallons
m. Weight = 122.71875 imperial tons (274,890 lbs)

2. GE Dash 8-32BWH (GE 7FDL-12; 3300 GHP); no HEP version
a. Wheel horsepower of 3,000 hp (2,239 kW) @ 30 mph
b. All other characteristics unchanged

IMPORTANT; Install Instructions

1. Locate Dash8_32BWHPack01 (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTG\Dash8_32BWHPack01)
2. Open DTG_Amtrak_Dash_8-32BWH_Sound_And_Physics_Mod_Pack.rar
3. Drag the file folders from the .rar in step 2 into the directory you opened in step 1.
4. The installation should be complete. Run TS2016 to check.
5. If installation is botched or does not work, to back up to original files, delete the folders from step 3.

User's Manual:
Upon installation, the pack defaults to using the HEP physics and sounds. In order to switch physics/sounds, follow the steps below:

1. Open the following directories:
a. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTG\Dash8_32BWHPack01\RailVehicles\Simulation"
b. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTG\Dash8_32BWHPack01\Audio\RailVehicles\Diesel\Dash8_32BWH\Engine"
2. In each of those directories, you will see two folders (one for each set of locomotive physics/sounds):
a. "HEP"
b. "No HEP"
3. Once you choose which set of physics/sounds to use, open the respective type folder in both 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 (replace) 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 (replace) when prompted.
8. If the previous 7 steps were completed properly, the physics swap should be successful; run TS2016 to check.

For adventurous players/developers, there are actually two sets of no-HEP notch 8 engine sounds included. If you can figure out how to swap between those two subsets, then have fun and decide for yourself which sounds better.

Thank you for downloading and installing.
Enjoy =)

In preparation for the release of the NJT Multilevels, I have updated the ALP-46/ALP-46A mod pack with a new file structure that eliminates the need to manually switch between 46 and 46A sounds and physics outside of the game. You can now select both locomotives simultaneously in the quick drive consist editor. Read the readme file for more info. Enjoy =)

THIS IS BOTH A PHYSICS AND SOUND UPGRADE PACK.

The purpose of this pack is to make minor physics adjustments to the ALP-46 locomotive, include an ALP-46A Physics set and road numbers, and introduce more accurate sounds for the DLC.

Version 1.0 includes updated horn and bell sounds from Chris Reynolds (MilwaukeeNorth418). Many thanks to him for allowing me to use his sounds free of charge for this mod.

Version 1.6 eliminates the ability to power brake.

Version 1.8 updates Comet Car drag coefficients to Amfleet standards (drag reduced).

Version 1.9 eliminates the need to manually swap files (you can now select the ALP-46 and ALP-46A simultaneously)

Version 2.0 includes the Multilevel Mod Pack update.

General Parameter Change Log (Physics):

General Parameter Change Log (Sounds):
1. New K5LA horn and steel bell recorded directly off of an ALP-46 unit.
2. New Comet IV door chime included.
3. Replaced default traction motor sounds and code with custom code and new traction motor sounds (for both ALP-46 and ALP-46A).
4. Includes both steel bell and e-bell
5. Removes the annoying non-mono brake sounds from the Comet cars.
6. V2.0 includes new Multilevel horn/bell/door sounds and new Comet V door sounds. No need to manually swap files.

h. Max brake amps = 340

IMPORTANT; Install Instructions

1. Open the following directory: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTG\NJT-Alp46"
2. Open the "DTG_NJT_ALP-46_Sound_And_Physics_Mod.rar" file
3. Drag both folders from the .rar file into the directory from step 1.

5. Reduced amount of coupler stretch.
6. Changed brake pipe pressure specification from 90 PSI to 110 PSI for passenger operations.
7. Changed road numbers for "Dash9-44CW BNSF Clean" unit to 30 confirmed Metrolink AC44 units.
8. Renamed "Dash9-44CW BNSF Clean" unit to "AC4400CW BNSF Clean [110PSI]" for easy identification & use in quick drive consist editor. *all other versions of the Dash 9 are untouched*

Specifications for individual models:
1. GE AC4400CW (GE 7FDL-16; 4650 GHP)
a. Starting tractive effort of 180,000 lbs (800.68 kN) up to 9.1547 mph.
b. Traction horsepower at wheel is 4,390 hp (3,276.12 kW)
c. Max Dynamic Brake effort of 98,000 lbs (435.926 kN) from 18 mph to 3 mph; fade to 0 lbs @ 0.5 mph.
d. Dynamic Brake horsepower at wheel is 4,700 hp (3,507 kW).
e. Increased weight of 190.1786 metric tons (426,000 lbs).
f. Maximum speed of 70 mph.
g. Fuel consumption @ notch 8 is 210 gallons per hour.
h. Prime mover RPM range is 315 to 1050.
i. Ammeter range is -980 to 1800.

IMPORTANT; Install Instructions

1. Locate the Dash9Pack01 asset folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\Dash9Pack01)
2. Open DTG_BNSF_Metrolink_GE_AC4400CW_Physics_Mod.rar
3. Drag the file folder from the .rar in step 2 into the directory you opened in step 1. Overwrite if asked.

Acceleration test of EMD F40PH-2CAT 4126 towing a 7 car MultiLevel set between New Brunswick & Trenton Transit Center on the New Jersey Racetrack section of the Northeast Corridor w/ RailDriver Desktop Control. Takes 7 min 55 sec and 9.2 miles of level track to reach 100 MPH; starting @ 5:00 in the video. Enjoy the action =)
