Armstrong Powerhouse presents a Pro sound pack for the class 57 diesel locomotive.

How is a Pro sound pack different to a standard one?

If a sound pack is classed as being Pro, it means that most, if not all, of the sounds used have been recorded using state-of-the-art equipment at an especially organised recording session. This allows us to acquire the exact kind of sounds we require to create the best experience within the simulator. In the case of this pack, all sounds were recorded from 57605 at Old Oak Common depot in London. As well as excellent audio quality, Pro packs include separate cab and exterior sounds because as anyone who's been in the cab of a locomotive knows, there is really quite a difference! Finally, all efforts have been made to make sure the sounds are as realistic as possible. One way we have achieved this is by employing realistic volume levels which means that the volume differential between idling and full power is prototypically large so as to make you really feel the power of the engine when it revs up.

What is exactly featured?

Ticking spirax valve

Engine primer

Engine start up/shut down

Dedicated sound for each power notch

Cooling fans (Freightliner & Rail Tour packs only)

Subtle traction motor hum can be heard in the cab as you pick up speed

User operable two-tone horn using the space-bar and 'B' key


Separate cab sounds

External sounds audible from the cab when the driver's window is open

AWS horn audible outside when right-hand window is open

Bogie run sounds to give the sensation of movement

Brake release/application sounds

Brake rub

Brake squeal

Flange sound

Cab instrument sounds

Jointed track sounds (Co-Co 3-axles)

Realistic sound fading effects

Accurate volume levels. This means the quietest sounds are as quiet as they should be in relation to the loudest as per reality.

During the installation process, these sounds will be applied to the Oovee Freightliner, Rail Tour & original (now discontinued) class 57 packs. Below is a video demonstrating the pack:

As well as the sounds, a 40 minute scenario is supplied for the DTG London Faversham High Speed route which sees you drive to from Hoo Junction to Rochester to haul a diverted Freightliner service back to Hoo Junction. To ensure the most realistic experience possible, it uses the timetable of the year it's based in. The perfect way to test these sounds out.

This add-on is supplied in download format only.
