As far as I know he is done with all the locomotives, he is just waiting for the sounds to be finished. But they sure do look great. biggrin.gif

Kyle says he is still waiting on sounds when I talked to him earlier. I think it is in the not too far future since he has been working on changing a few things on the website in preparation for the release.

They're done! Keep an eye out on the site for them. I'm currently running them to make sure everything is doing well. But never the less, they will be out in the next 24-48 hours... or at least I think so. biggrin.gif

Awesome, Look forward to this.

Since your a Hogger, how does the engine compare to the real thing?

I'm hoping to have the completed audio to Kyle this evening. I've been busting my bottom the last couple of days getting everything to turn out well, and I have to tell you, I think they sound rather nice. wink.gif

Knowing how hard Dan works and how much effort and quality he puts into projects, I'm sure "rather nice" is a very big understatement!!! smile.gif

And thank you very much for your help with these beasts Dan!

Well, I would have to agree with you Kyle. Dan does some great work and glad SLW got him to do them for him. Although I am pretty much sticking to a 50. 60. early seventy era, I might just see what they look like? Haven't seen either so will be nice to see anyway. Congrats to all of the people at SLW for creating these magnificent beasts!!

EDIT: The post obviously didn't suit the masses...

FOR CLARIFICATION: I do like the work of Engineer Kyle. It looks good, it is very nice detail and I am sure, that Dan did great sounds for it. Full stop. I prefer MLT's SD90s because they are incorporated into a route with activities and all. So it is just a matter of personal preference.

Sorry for the harm done, hope this is better...

I can vouch for Dan working hard. He passed up a chance to get some audio of F-16s and A-10s, including strafe with hot guns, just to keep working on this sound project. That's dedication.

Don't worry, Dan, you're not missing much. It's cloudless, 46 degrees and rising, with a 15 knot breeze out of the northwest. And oh, they're paying me to watch airplanes drop bombs. tongue.gif

Hey, you didn't mention anything about bombs being dropped! Man oh man! I'll get there one of these days. But, yes, getting this audio finished with is number one on the priority list.
