With this being our first MK3 based DMU for TSW, I’m extremely disappointed Rivet have failed to get the Class 150 sounding decent. Upon departing Penzance, I immediately knew it didn’t sound right. There is absolutely no revving to the engine sounds. It simply sounds like they’ve used the idling sound with a little bit of variation for the engine notches. There’s just no grunt to it at all whatsoever. For reference, this is what it should sound like when departing. There is also very little ‘running’ sounds for the train whilst at speed, as well as no distinctive ‘rub’ sounds of the brakes, whilst braking. Unsurprisingly, Rivet said they won’t be changing the sounds of the engine once the route is up for release. The only thing they said was “We’re looking into it” which translates to me as they have no intention on changing anything. I found both DTG’s and Rivet’s attitude to authentic sounds very poor, as it seems getting the sounds accurate just isn’t a priority. Medals and achievements were put on the same importance as good sounds, for reference.
