    long time listener, first time caller.

    While we do indeed have a P42DC for Train Simulator, I think it would be very cool to have a newer P42 developed with some of the cooler technology that Searchlight Simulations has implemented over the past few years. I’m not knocking on the DTG or GTRAX P42s, I just feel they’re dated and we could totally use something newer!

    I agree. DTG has done some fantastic stuff, and if they could work with Searchlight, that would be incredible. I can hear the layered horn audio now....

    Personally, I would like to have an older P42, or the P40, in Phase 3 paint. One of the 1st Amtrak locos I've seen on Greg Scholl's America By Rail Series. Also both locomotives had slightly different PHIII paint schemes on them.

    Agree with you on the Ph 3 paint. I've always thought it suited the Genesis body the best.

    I certainly agree with you. The current P42 (and P32 for that matter) have off-looking models. The proportions seem off and the sounds are also not too great. Such a popular and well known locomotive definitely deserves some love!

    Absolutely agree!!! PHIII is the Amtrak I grew up with and remember!! My first trip on Amtrak was on the Texas Eagle pulled by 3 shiny new P40s. Wouldn’t hurt to see some accurate MHCs as well. Paint job on the ones we have is less than..... adequate.
