Armstrong Powerhouse presents a sound pack for the 1st generation British Rail DMUs (class 101/105/111/117/121).

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, most sounds were recorded from a class 101 at the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway and a class 108 at the East Lancashire Railway. As well as excellent audio quality, Pro packs include separate cab and exterior sounds because as anyone whose been in the cab of these units knows, there is really quite a difference!

Main Features

Accurate engine sounds

Separate exhaust sounds with added rasp on the class 117 and 121

Distinctive clunk when putting unit into gear

Hissing 'EP' valves when changing gear, power handle or reverser setting

Bogie run sounds to give the sensation of movement

User operable two-tone horn using the space-bar and 'B' key. Three separate versions for different driving vehicles.

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.

Separate internal and external versions of most sounds

1 hour minute scenario for the Riviera Line route which sees you drive a 3 car BR blue/grey class 101 between Exeter St. Davids and Paignton. Using the 1983 working timetable and realistic stock formations.

If all of that wasn't enough, we have gone beyond just sounds and also revamped the physics. Please note that for the best experience, we recommend you use the supplied separate 'AP' variants of the units:

The RPM as shown on the tachometer is now linked with speed as per reality. As a result, you can use the 'Change Up' and 'Change Down' sections of the tachometer to know when to change gear.

Improved acceleration physics. (Separate 'AP' variants only)

Gear lever changed so it rises and falls one-by-one rather than skipping straight from neutral to 1st gear. Please note that this means the gear lever is no longer compatible with the F3/F4 HUD.

Quick Drive consists supplied for new 'AP' variants with improved acceleration physics and general performance.

Please note, this pack is NOT compatible with any external controllers such as the XBOX or RailDriver.

During the installation process, this pack will be applied to the packs listed beneath the 'Essential Requirements' heading towards the bottom of this page. Please see below for a video of the sounds in action:
