Why'd you bump it down from 6 brake points to 4?
It's in the readme dude:
Quote
Version 1.1 update; decreased number of service brake points from 6 to 4, to give B1 brake rate of 0.75 mph/s.
The M7 manual states that the minimum brake rate is 0.75 mph/s, so if the full service rate is 3.0 mph/s then naturally, setting the number of brake points at 4 gives the correct operating characteristics for the minimum application.

Great job! This is definitely one of the more sophisticated cabs that I've seen.

Too bad they're no MNRR/LIRR routes in development. I'd definitely like to see the Hudson branch be developed one day (or even  Yankee Stadium to Grand Central as a starter) and I'd love to see the Port Washington Branch developed too.
I'm in dvelopemnet for the New Haven Line, see my forum post below my reply :)
