Definitely.  The sound has been totally improved.  I will be uploading a video later that will demonstrate the features this train has.  It is exciting to have animated knobs and a horn, as well as working wipers and JayJay's 3D interior/exterior trainset.  More will be seen in video footage.

That looks really good man!! One thing I want to point out that I see missing is the lightup enablers on the dashboard.They should be like a dim yellowish color.When the button is pressed by the T/O the light goes out when the doors are closed and locked it goes back yellow.But some R-44's had it kind of like a bluish/green.

So, those should have some light in them?  I can fix that before sending this out.  Thanks for pointing that out!

Yea its basically the indication for when the doors are locked/open on the side of the train.Its obvious which side opens which side though.Is it possible you can delay the door openings.Most or all the R-44's take a while to get the doors open b\c the enabler is/was very old so it was like a 2sec delay.
And I never seen that "locked" indication lit up before just the enablers.
Not my pic:

Notice like I said before some were like a blusih/green and some were like a dirty/dim yellow.Doesn't matter to me but its your train your choice.

It doesn't look so in any of the NYCT BVE routes.  This is a European route I tested the train on, for light and dark lighting.  ;D

They both look high to me obviously b\c the entire panel can't be seen.And can you trim the cab pic a bit by cutting the left side at the door handle.

In OpenBVE (dunno for the previous versions), but you can zoom in/out, pan left/right up and down.  I designed nearly a full cab view, where  the important areas are necessary to see.  Using the up and down keyboard arrows, you can pan around.

Also remember, this is a European route, not NY.  In NY, this train doesn't look so high because maybe the developers of the European routes do a different job for their type of trains.  I mean notice in the second pic, the station appears pretty low.  They could have elevated it just a little for some realism.  I haven't encountered one problem using my R44 (or R40) with a NYC route.

London Underground Deep tube stock trains are much shorter in height. That's why the cab seems pretty high.

No problem. By the way, I can find you a good motor sound recording if you're still using the stock nycta motor sound. I can wait a few extra days and drive an R44 with a sound-realistic motor, if you haven't included it already.
