    Fixes that need to happen:
    1. The F40PH and MP36 accelerate way too quickly from zero speed. This is how they accelerate in real life:
    2. The F40 Headlights need to be brighter and have a stronger yellow glow like in real life. They did a better job on the Nippon Sharyo cab car headlights.
    3. The ditch lights need to be fixed on the F40. You can barely see them flashing.
    4. The bearings on the outside of some of the wheels don't move on the f40ph. They are stuck in place. They did a good job with the Nippon Sharyo Gallery cars.
    5. The bell is too loud in the cab of the F40. I think dovetail is aware of that problem.
    6. The Signals change way too late when you pass them.

    Minor problems I can deal with but would like to see fixed:
    1. Better exhaust effects/Engine sounds(F40PH specifically)
    2. They did a decent job with sounds like the door warning, bells, and brake sounds but the horns could be better. Although they are not terrible.
    3. Cars waiting at crossing gates
    4. Tamien station. Caltrain uses this station frequently and would be cool if they add it. It's only a couple-mile extension.
    5. I feel the brakes are a touch too effective with minimal brake application. Specifically on the Nippon Shayro gallery Car.

    Changing the physics are very complicated cuz it can break the game and affect the whole timetable which would then need to be completely remade. which is why dtg were very scared with overhauling the physics on the class 166. It didn't break anything or affect the timetable too much but according to many people, you can't complete certain services on time cuz of how slow and realistic the train got.

    There is a preservation update coming to peninsula corridor and it's supposed to be huge so some of the issues you mentioned could be fixed but we won't know until the update comes out

    If you want to report bugs, it is better to use the technical reports subforum.

    If you have read the latest roadmap under preservation crew you will see Pennisula Corridor is listed as huge.

    Yeah, I saw. They have been working on it for almost a year now. So I'm anxious to see what they fixed.

    Well part of the problem is that the times on GWE are computer generated. I'm almost never on time when driving the 166 on GWE

    You are right. I think they know about that problem. I save my game before I enter South SF because 90% of the time the game crashes in that area.

    I'm not usually one to complain but Peninsula Corridor is literally "literally unplayable" for me and it looks like many other people at the moment. It is reliably crashing at South San Francisco to the extent that I have avoided playing this route for many months now, this needs bumping up the list of priorities.
