    I am still getting a sound similar to a "Machine Gun" start at random times
    the only thing to get rid of it it change to ext view and then back again
    isn't it time this was fixed as I have always had it pop up
    Every time there is an update I hope it's gone, and then, no it's still there.
    I presume it's something in the core game as it's not just in one route.

    They are working with an external developer to try and fix the issue. It's a complex thing involving the entire sounds of the game for Xbox. I'll be surprised if it gets fixed this year. As it doesn't affect other platforms, I guess it's not a big priority.

    It is very annoying,
    it even happens when exploring on foot
    then the only way to get rid of it then is to quit.
    I have resorted to buying Microsoft Flight sim to take my mind off
    all the negatives in this game at the moment

    ECW at Brighton sounded like it was full of diesels not EMUs

    The sound issue has been there for a long time now and it very much detracts from any enjoyment in playing the game. DTG are aware and said they're looking into this.

    I too have been playing Flight sim but found that to be equally buggy.

    It seems to be the standard that all games have bugs.

    I appreciate fixing the sounds on Xbox is a massive job, but it’s such an immersion killer, especially when using headphones. Playing the game with headphones is great because I hear things in the cab I don’t hear when using my tv speaker, but the crackling and looping is just too prominent. Fantastic to hear possible ways of fixing are being thought about. I would really love to see this on the roadmap

    I still don't understand how this is an Xbox-specific issue. There are literally hundreds of UE games on Xbox and no other game has this crazy audio bug. Not to mention it didn't exist in TSW2020 that I can recall except in the Class 20, which released right before TSW2.

    I think they f'd something up during the TSW2 update and now another UE version update has been built on top of it, which makes me not very hopeful it will ever be fixed.

    It doesn't even happen all the time, but i can't find any pattern to it- maybe it's when too many sounds are playing at once?

    Anyway, it really sucks.

    There were sound issues before UE 4.26 update but the latter made them even worse. Popping was less prominent before but overall sound quality has always been particularly bad on Xbox, compared to other platforms.

    Here's an example of the looping sound from the ICE BR 406 on the new Dresden route. I'm running at a constant speed here of around 60kph and you can hear that there's a click around every 6-7 seconds.
