Welcome aboard Pacific Surfliner Train 562, the San Diego bound express from Los Angeles. It is the peak travel period, and we are short on rolling stock, so we have a 10 car Amfleet train being hauled by one F59PHi locomotive. Note the start up of the HEP system before we depart Los Angeles Union Station. We will depart from Los Angeles (8:15), and call at Fullerton (35:00), Anaheim (42:15), Santa Ana (51:10), Irvine (1:02:30), San Juan Capistrano (1:15:05), San Clemente Pier (1:28:48), Oceanside (1:48:40), and Solana Beach (2:07:10), before terminating at San Diego (2:38:00). Enjoy the ride through the urban sprawl of Southern Los Angeles as we approach the beautiful California Coast and seaboard. This train follows the real life schedule of 562 (http://www.amtrak.com/ccurl/536/483/Pac ... 0113,0.pdf" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;), and with the extra schedule padding, we arrive at Oceanside 10 minutes early. All aboard.

In celebration of the anniversary of the GG1's last revenue run on October 29th, here is a run of train 3954 with vintage equipment. Due to police activity at NWK Liberty, we make an unscheduled stop at Metropark before expressing straight to Newark Penn, where we arrive 10 minutes early; a great testament to the reliability of the GG1 fleet. Enjoy the ride.

Be mindful that not everything is perfect, and there are some glitches depending on stock. I take no credit for the production of anything seen here or available for download. I'm simply passing along this opportunity to you, a fellow enthusiast. Enjoy =)

Welcome aboard the newly released China Railways CRH1A Trainset for Train Simulator 2014. This video showcases the tutorial scenario where you will learn how to operate the CRH1A along with how to interpret the signal system present along the Chinese High Speed Rail Line. More scenarios coming soon. Enjoy =)

With the P42DC Re-released (http://store.steampowered.com/app/222627/), I was finally able to play around with it:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=idCS9mqXtzk" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; - 8 car Northeast Regional speed test on the NEC
List of mods I have made so far:
1. Change RPM range to 468 - 1047 and adjusted fuel consumption rates based on information here: http://www.trainorders.com/discussion/read.php?4,1871287.
2. Adjust Tractive Effort down to real world values.
3. Adjust Braking Effort curve to simulate realism.
4. Adjust amp limits so that the in cab ammeter displays properly.
5. Increased weight from 121 tons to 130 tons to simulate fully loaded locomotive
6. Increased fuel capacity from 1800 gallons to 2200 gallons.
7. Increased air brake application and release rates. Original rates are painfully and unrealistically slow.

This is the P42DC Physics Upgrade and HEP Version Addition pack.

In order to utilize this freeware physics upgrade, you must have purchased the Amtrak P42 DC 'Empire Builder' Loco Add-On pack avaliable at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/222627/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

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 P42DC pack.

Parameter Change Log:
1a. Change RPM range to 200 - 1047 and adjusted fuel consumption rates based on information here: http://www.trainorders.com/discussion/r ... ?4,1871287" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;.
1b. Lowered RPM change rate from 40 to 30.
2. Adjust Tractive Effort down to real world values. Default TE ratings are too high.
3. Adjust Braking Effort curve to simulate realism.
4. Adjust amp limits so that the in cab ammeter displays properly.
5. Increased weight from 121 tons to 130 tons to simulate fully loaded locomotive
6. Increased fuel capacity from 1800 gallons to 2200 gallons.
7. Increased air brake application and release rates. Original rates are painfully and unrealistically slow.

This pack also converts the NC locomotives (the locomotives that do not have crew members in the cabs) into HEP running versions.
The parameter changes for those locomotives are the same as the ones for the non-HEP versions except for the following:
1. Change RPM range to 900 - 901 and adjusted fuel consumption rates based on information here: http://www.trainorders.com/discussion/r ... ?4,1871287" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;.
2. TE Ratings for the HEP versions are lowered realistically, since power is reduced by HEP draw. Calculations for non-HEP locomotive are made with 3850 wheel HP, while calculations for HEP locomotive are made with 3000 wheel HP.

IMPORTANT; Install Instructions

1. Open the "P42Pack01Assets.ap" pack file with .7z
2. Proceed to open folders until the .7z directory reads "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\P42Pack01\P42Pack01Assets.ap\RailVehicles\Diesel\".
3. Then open the "Railworks_P42DC_HEP_Addition_and_Physics_Mod.rar" file.
4. Take the file folder named "P42DC" and drag it into the .ap file.
5. Click "OK" when it asks you to Confirm File Copy.
6. The installation should be complete. Run TS2014 to check.

Thank you for downloading and installing.
Enjoy =)
