Wow... I have been so out of touch with the diesel scene that I have NO IDEA what's the latest/greatest in regards to a few items.

I intend to customize my installation of Frisco equipment within its own "Mini-Route", so I'm going to be personalizing some of the equipment with new sounds, cabviews, repaints, etc.

QUESTIONS:

* What EMD 567 sound pack REALLY does it for you?

* Same question for which Alco 244 sounds!

What is your favorite:

* EMD F unit cabview.

* EMD GP7 cabview (high hood).

* Alco FA cabview.

* Alco RS1 cabview.

* Alco RS2/3 cabview.

Guess that's it for now!

Thanks in advance for sharing info about your favorites!

F's, E's and early Geeps both high and low hood. I have always been happy with Marc's 567 sounds. wink.gif

Thanks Kevin:

I like Marc's cabviews for sure.

Seein' as it's been a long time since I've run any diesels to speak of, I'm wondering: Any updates to Marc's stuff that I need to know about? It has been well over 3 - 4 years or more since I've even semi-seriously tinkered with diesels in MSTS!

Hi Jeff!

Thanks for the input!

I have Gaetan's Frisco Pack and the FA cab is a keeper. Probably going to go with Marc's EMD cabviews for the EMD's.

Still searching to determine what is the "perfect" (for my tired ears) EMD engine sound!

Also please keep in mind that Gaetan has a newly redesigned F unit cab which is in near mint condition. It's only been out for the last few weeks.

Andre you might want to try Erick Cantu's 567 sounds from his fox river valley v2 gp9 over at train-sim.
