Once i have a chance to ride the Staten Island Railway again, hopefully we can modify the model for the R46 to create the R44. Should be fairly easy to modify from the original sketchup file. It would be complicated to modify the B3D files due to the nature of how the blender plugin triangulates the faces.

As for the SIR version, nyctrman and I are taking care of that, so that DJ Hammers can focus on the NYCT R44.

I am not sure if you need it or not, but I can get some SIRT R44 blue seat textures, to save you a bit of trouble. I have not really gotten a chance to contribute to anything yet, I would love to have a shot at the R44.

Sounds good.

Do we have sounds for the R44 yet? it should sound like the R68 a little bit if im not mistaken.
The NYCT R44s sounded close the R68s, but it was not exactly a perfect sound match. The R44s
have a different brake release sound that is unique to the R44s only, and differing soundproofing between the R68s
and R44s led to different run sounds.

I played the older R44 BETA without the exterior, and I knew that something great was to come. Great work, and I love what is being done since the BETA. The cab looks amazing, and I can not wait until the official release date.

Like I said in an earlier post, this model is the grandad of all 75 foot cars. What a wonderful tribute!

work is progressing very slowly. Work on the exterior is on hold for now because I am short on time right now. I am working a little on the cab however.

The R44s had this characteristic brake release that came from the magnetically-actuated brake valve.

As for progress on the train, the panel is being worked on slowly, but work on the exterior is stalled because we are tied up dealing with other exteriors.

Now that the R38 has been released, work on the R44 is starting up again. I know you guys have been waiting on this one for a VERY long time, so I'm doing my best to finish it up quick. Right now most of the work that needs to be done is sound work, which I'm working on now.

After that I will touch up the panel a bit. Keep in mind that we don't have a suitable picture of an R44 cab, so the current drawn cab will be used unless somebody can get me a (GOOD) cab view shot of the R44 from the perspective of the T/O.
