Class 66 Horn mod for DBS 66 (GWE) and ECW

This mod enables a more authentic horn combination sound than the deafult source.
Note in order to have this combination Ive assigned preset combinations to play with high and low keys. For best result hold key down firmly until 2 tone has played out.
*Update 12/6/22 Now in addition to Horn replacement there are modifications to the Engine, bogies, and Cab.
*Update 26/6/22 DBS 66 Has changes Engine sounds, Reverser and throttle lever tweaks, Brake release and interior rattles. For GWE66 only (for now).
*Update 9/8/22 Small tweak to the bogie running sounds, to negate the abrupt approach sounds that cant be corrected.


GWE and ECW dlc depending on which 66 you use.

Installation Instructions

Insert the pak file into your DLC folder.

Additional Comments

ecw 66 is Eastcoastway DLC

Added a test file, more prominent Ying ying at low power, higher fan volume, lower horn volume.

*Bogie run fix- all the ecw sound mod features with additional work on the bogie running to negate the abrupt oapproach noise of the EastCoastway 66 version.

Why not just put the High tone as a 66 high tone and the low as a 66 low tone

To do that I would have to use the conventional fade in - loop-fade out method. In my experience so far especially with the 66. I might get good sound compared to what we’ve been used to in TSW but would never have the same punch that a genuine air horn provides.

OK, I've downloaded both of these mods - the GWE 66 has a nice punchy loudness to the horn, the ECW 66 is playing at almost half-volume. Did I do something wrong on my end?

I doubt you will have done anything wrong with installation. It would either work or not. I’ll give it a whirl tonight.

Hi , just played it. Outside the Cab it sounds the same level as the GWE one. Inside the Cab it may be quieter. My guess is this is an occlusion setting in the ECW version that was later added as an upgrade.

I'm getting both the inside & outside lower on ECW. Not you fault, though!

OK, not sure if I'm doing anything wrong again, or if it's another mod confilict, but there is NO throttle-up or down sounds either in the cab or via external view with the new sounds added today. Doesn't sound like this at all:

[]( if youre on discord. This is how the 66 mod sounds. Notches are toned down to lose the ying ying effect on high power. It shouldnt be silent though.

I am with my Destiny 2 clan, but that link is broken. There is no 'ying-ying' at all, even at idle. I was super-hyped when I saw this, because you spoiled us with the Class 37 packs...

If time I’ll do a louder ying version for you to try.

W2SJW Added a file for you to try out "TS2Prototype-yingtest....", hopefully addresses your issues.

I can hear the 'ying' just fine in this test version, but the engine under load just sounds like a distant 'wirrrr', both inside & out. There's no turbo whine or anything. Thank you for making the test, though!

what was the previous name of this file !TS2Prototype-ecwbogierunfix.pak
or is that the first version?

Sorry it is a bit cluttered now. Enginebogierunfix is the latest sound mod for the ecw 66. The sound is set up differently to the gwe 66 by default and as a result has an abrupt sound on approach. So this file contains the full sound mod for ecw 66 plus adjustments to bogie volume to get around the abruptness.
