This mod changes the audio on the locomotives for the Horseshoe Curve route. Currently just the ES44AC since I think the GP38-2's sounds are fine.

I have really enjoyed your sound mods. I just have clinchfield and cane creek to pick up and be able to use all your sound mods. You are the reason why I enjoy American freight routes

did you fix the doppler effect for the horn? start sound and end sound have more doppler effect than the loop, and the loop still has too much doppler effect even by itself.

This is an excellent sound mod griggs; it has transformed the HSC GEVO, into a believable and enjoyable locomotive to drive.
Thank you for creating this 👍🏻😃

Hey! just a sugjestion!
do you think you could make the ending of the horn sound less abrubt?

Avatar of griggs
griggs 26 Apr 2022

Can't. It's hard coded to cut off at a certain point for some reason.

i honestly feel like the horn isn't abrupt enough lol. the horn control is horrible on this train. only an update from dtg themselves would fix this, and that'll likely not happen for a long time.

Can you port these sounds over to the BNSF ES44C4, if you have TSW3

IMHO, the ES44C4 sounds need to be ported over to this engine. They are spot-on for the GEVO units I hear working the NS Lehigh Line that goes through my area.

Does this work with TSW3? I see it was asked over a year ago but with no answer. Thanks.
