Amtrak Dash 8-32BWH Review

First of all, I am a rivet counter, so if that annoys you, don't read any farther. The Dash 8-32 is very nicely modeled. The nose door and bathroom door even opens, but the windows don't. The cab is very nicely modeled but is missing some key components. But when the cab light is on, you have a substantial FPS drop. The sounds are mediocre at best, but that can be fixed. DTG has really added details to this locomotive. The chain on the front even sways! They also included several headlight modes, step lights, and other features. Now I will move onto the cars. They included recycled Superliner II cars. The cars have no vestibules, and the sounds are way to loud. Overall, 8/10.

Not bad of a DLC...but the sounds are certainly better than what's in the P42DC. The included coaches are a disappointment, should've tacked in something like Horizon coaches and an NPCU for use on the Pacific Surfliner.
