Will this beta release feature an upgrade from the generic motor sound? That's the primary thing I'm looking forward to in this R44 release!
If not we can get that from the 68's since the NYCT 44's and 68's have Westinghouse motors the 44's on SI sound exactly like the NYCT R-46's.

I would like to BETA test also for speed and braking reasons ya know me  ;D

I got a response from the website that has the Westcode logo and they said they are not affiliated with them, they just provide searchable databases to registered trademarks.  So I wrote directly to Westcode, so lets see what they say.

BETA testers will receive a pm from me.  This will be the final testing before a public release.

Why will there be 3 versions instead of 2? Are you talking about like a Blue Stripe,GOH and SIRT version?

There's only two versions, GOH and SIRT.  These train sets have service letters and route destinations for the IND/BMT and SIRT routes.

Ok cool! The controllers will be the same or different?

Probably different, because the SIRT R44's have a completely different panel and controller than the IND/BMT ones. http://www.flickr.com/photos/29997762@N05/4744659612/#

Also, IIRC, unlike the R46, the R44 had the same panel and controller in both its Pre-GOH and Post-GOH states.

I know that already but Zero didn't show any pic of the SIR R-44 panel which is why I asked.

Controller will be different, of course.  I did a new controller, as I mentioned on page 7.  ;)  The panel is also different, with some cool new features too early to discuss and will not be in the BETA version

Update:

Left and right door lights now functional.  Yes, that means when one or both sides of the cars have opened doors, the main door light on the panel and the left or right or both operator lights (which ever side the door has opened) turns off.  When the doors on either side closes, the main panel light (green) comes on and so does the operator light of whichever side the door closed.  Long story short, when all 3 green lights are on, it's safe to drive.



Also, still no response from Westcode, so we might not get a Westcode printed on the controller (before the public release).  Shout out to the people testing the BETA 3 version!  And special thanks to everyone for their input into this project.  Without you guys, this would not have been the R44 it is becoming.

If the thread title is "R44 Train near completion", you'd think that would imply that the train isn't finished yet, no?
