On my everlasting quest for the best emd non-turbocharged enginesounds, I have to say, "hats off to the guys at railworks who designed the sw1500 pack"! They are marvelous engine, and the sounds are even greater! Just curious if it would be possible to take the sounds from their sw's and put it in a trainz sw?

Haven't had RW installed in a bit over a year now, but IIRC the sounds were .dav which is apparently some weird variation on the standard windows .wav file. Somewhere there's a conversion utility called dav to wav, only link I can find at the moment is at UKtrainsim;

But if the sounds are in .dav format and you can convert to .wav, you could get them into a Trainz sound file. Personal use only, you couldn't upload it of course, I'm sure there's a EULA that would prohibit redistribution.

Yeah, there probably is, but I thank you for the link, I greatly appreciate it. I'll see what I can do!
