Major progress of the Bombardier M7 EMU for openBVE. Seats have been added, as well as the luggage racks, and the bathroom exterior among other things. Development on the 3D cab has also begun. Stay tuned for much more in the near future. We are still on schedule for a release sometime between Christmas Day and New Years Day. Enjoy =)

Many thanks to Manuel for putting in long hours of hard work with me to make this possible ;)

Here is a preliminary preview video of the WIP 3D cab for the Metro-North Railroad Bombardier M7 EMU. Kudos to Manuel for putting in the enormous amount of time and effort to generate this cab. A few more tweaks, and this will be ready for download. Stay tuned folks =)

After a long development period, I am pleased to present to you the long awaited Long Island Rail Road & Metro-North Railroad Bombardier M7 EMU Pack V1.0 for OpenBVE (Initial release 12/24/14).

This train is highly detailed and advanced. Keep reading for full details.

The M7 electric multiple unit was built in the early 2000s for both of the MTA's commuter railroad agencies; the LIRR, and MNCR. This pack comes with both versions of the M7. Painstaking care has been taken to differentiate both models from each other, which goes far beyond just having different paint schemes; note the differing seating layout, cab signal aspect displays, third rail pickup shoe mounts on the trucks, and the presence of traction motor blower air scoops on the MNCR M7 which are not present on the LIRR M7.

In addition, hours of coding were put in to animating the 3D engineer's cab. Note that the cab's train status and diagnostic displays are semi-animated/semi-functional.

Finally, note the placement of the cab doors throughout the consist; the end cars will have their cab doors closed, while the middle cars have them open.

The cab signalling on version 1.0 is not yet functional, but as soon as a route is coded that can make use of the cab signalling system, a plugin will be drafted and this pack will be updated to version 2.0.

Version 2.0 will also include animated destination signage and a detailed lavatory.

This pack comes with two versions of the M7 physics set; an unlimited and a limited version. The unlimited version sports the full acceleration spec as delivered by Bombardier, while the limited version features slightly toned down acceleration in order to lower current draw from the third rail.

Credits list:
-Sounds: Fan Railer (Mike Kam)[general sound programmer] & William McMorris [high quality announcement chime, buzzer sound, & combined throttle/brake controller "click"]
-Engineer's Cab (3D): Manuel Alejandro Mejias Palacios
-Exterior model: Manuel Alejandro Mejias Palacios
-Physics: Fan Railer (Mike Kam)
-Project coordinator & BETA tester: Fan Railer (Mike Kam)
-Invaluable reference material (for physics): Gregory Grice

IMPORTANT: Please do not redistribute this train pack. This pack is only to be made available via sanctioned sites, ie, BVEstation & Fan Railer's Mediafire page.

Technical information:

Power system: 750 VDC Third Rail
Axles arrangement: Bo'Bo'
Service weight (empty): 126,808 lbs
Starting acceleration: 2.0 mph/s
Continuous acceleration (unlimited): 2.0 mph/s @ 35 mph ; 0.5345 mph/s @ 100 mph
Continuous acceleration (limited): 1.5 mph/s @ 47.5 mph ; 0.5345 mph/s @ 100 mph
Full service brake rate: 3.0 mph/s
Emergency brake rate: 3.355 mph/s
Rated power (per car): 1080 hp
Service speed: 80 mph
Maximum design speed: 100 mph
Gauge: 4 ft 8.5 in
Length between couplers: 85 ft 0 in
Vehicle Width: 10 ft 6 in
Rail to Roof Height: 12 ft 11.5 in
Distance Between Truck Centers: 59 ft 6 in
Truck Wheel Base: 8 ft 6 in
Wheel Diameter (New): 36 in

Essential Operating Tips:
For openBVE purposes, this train has 6 power points, one for each major cab signal limit. Each point will increase acceleration proportionally.
P1 - 15 mph (24 km/h)
P2 - 30 mph (32 km/h)
P3 - 45 mph (72 km/h)
P4 - 60 mph (96 km/h)
P5 - 80 mph (128 km/h)
P6 - 100 mph (160 km/h)

For openBVE purposes, this train has 6 service brake points.
B1 - B5 are dynamic brake only.
B6 begins to blend in friction brakes to achieve full service brake rate of 3.0 mph/s.

Thanks for downloading and enjoy, and also, have a happy holiday season =)
