    Hey everyone, we are currently sourcing our sounds for the ES44AC and we are wondering if the community might be able to help us.

    We are specifically looking for quality audio of the Nathan K5HL/K5HLL airhorn.

    If you have audio files you think we could use or you know someone who does, please put us in touch so we can investigate if the sounds are usable. If we find something suitable we would very much like to get licenses to use it.

    With this in mind, please try not to link us to YouTube pages, as often the quality of these sounds are either unusable for Train Sim World 2 or are copyrighted.

    We are hopeful we will be able to find some quality audio, but please don’t be disheartened if we are unable to use something you provide.

    If you think you can help us, please let us know below and we will be in touch.

    Finally finished mowing and have the time to get appropriate sounds (wink wink).

    Better fixed the DB BR 187 Sounds First.
    People already create mods or give you real life connections to record the Sounds

    Because of the Headlights from the 187/147 it need to look exactly like this with the two lower lamps on with the third.
    But the TSW 2 Version has only the higher ones with is wrong.

    Another source for BR 187 audio could be them, probably.

    http://s373240011.website-start.de/

    They are a video production company, but I guess, for their DVDs, they recorded quite a lot audio.

    Hi, yes if you guys also have any leads on the horn audio for the GP38-2 please also let us know so that we can assess it. I initialally only raised the audio about the ES44AC with it being a new loco to TSW2 but the GP38-2 is already in. Obviously i don't know anywhere near enough about the audio like you guys do but my initial thoughts were that the GP38-2 would already have audio. If i am wrong on this please let me know thankyou! :)

    Which GP38-2 will you guys even model? There’s a version with a high hood and a short hood version.

    Technically there are at least 3 versions of the GP38-2s, in terms of former operators.
    The SOU (originally High Hooded, but many rebuilt into Short Hood now), Conrail/PC (all Short Hooded), and the rebuilds (a mix from NW/SOU/CR GP38/GP38AC units, all short hooded).
    But, as there have been more low hoods than high hoods on the GP38 these days. My bet would be that they're making a low hood variant instead of the high hoods. Just a guess for now.

    As Challenger3985 said above, there are 3 main versions of the GP38-2 that NS operates and each one has different horns. The former Conrail locos will almost always have a Leslie RS3L on them. The ex-Southern high hoods will have either a Nathan P5 or P3. When it comes to the rebuilds, it's usually a mixed bag. Since most of the GP38-2 fleet is old, many of the original horns have been replaced when they got rebuilt, usually with whatever horns they had in the shops on reserve. I've heard Leslie RS3L, Nathan P5, Nathan P3, and Nathan K5LA. I've even heard a Nathan K5LLA on one once (usually these horns are only on NS SD70ACe). So honestly there is a lot to choose from. In my personal opinion, I would love to see the RS3L because those horns are my favorite but also because the route over Horseshoe Curve is formerly Conrail, as are the GP38-2 that use these horns. I did make sound files for a P5 and RS3L but I forgot you can't upload mp3 to the forums.

    Edit: I uploaded the mp3 files
    Leslie RS3L from NS 5272: https://www.mboxdrive.com/Leslie_RS3L_NS_5272.mp3
    Nathan P5 from NS 5270: https://www.mboxdrive.com/Nathan_P5_NS_5270.mp3

    There's only 8 German routes already out lmao
    So far there are only 5 American routes and 1 Canadian route, so it's good that they're finally getting back to American routes as they have been working nonstop on a couple British routes and the German route for Rush Hour.

    Hi! We have some audio collected for the GP38-2 but the more choices we have the better! I will look into all sound suggestions. Thankyou very much! :)

    Hi, for confirmation we will not be using those horn sounds. The ES44AC and GP38-2 will have some new horn audio we are looking at :). If you look above we are currently researching into the patchhill audio sound pack and have some freight horn options in there that we believe to match the horns used on these locomotives. We have also spoke with some of the community for confirmation on the audio for the horns. For context i believe the audio for the ES44AC horn we found is the K5HLL horn and the GP38-2 is an RS3L. Hope this helps clear things up :).

    So that would mean the GP38 you making is from the Ex-Conrail fleet (#5257-5361). Am I reading that right?

    Hi, hopefully i don't upset you with my response but i am still learning my trade on locomotives but from the information i was given our locomotive number range does match the numbers you put. So if they match i assume that is correct. Please forgive me for my lack of knowledge on this but hopefully the matching number range helps. :)

    Hi, for the ES44AC, did y’all add the heritage liveries? There’s 10 heritage ES44ACs that NS have.

    Actually, you might be right. I looked up the road numbers and they do indeed fall into the category of the Ex-Conrail GP38-2s. Based on this forum, and the road numbers they will be using, it looks like they are Ex-Conrail variants.
