With a 1,000-mile route system, much of which is electrified with overhead A.C. catenary, commuter carrier NJ Transit is one of North America’s primary employers of electric locomotives. Seeking a new fleet of state-of-the art electrics, NJ Transit contracted with Adtranz (now part of Bombardier) in Kassel, Germany to construct 29 electric locomotives designed based on the Deutsche-Bahn Class-101 electric. Classified as ALP-46s on NJ Transit, the electrics (NJT 4600-4628) began arriving in 2001 and each packed 7,100-horsepower into a stylish 64-foot-long, dual-cab carbody. Riding Flexifloat trucks in a B-B wheel arrangement and with a drive system that incorporates a transformer, two traction converters, and MITRAC electronic control systems, the ALP-46s comfortably handle 10-car NJT consists at 100 mph.

The F40PH-2CAT is a nifty little piece of NJT equipment DTG released a while back with the North Jersey Coast Line. Prior to the bugfix I really couldn't recommend this locomotive, but following the update I can definitely recommend it. To begin with the sounds aren't all that great, as the exterior prime mover sounds are also recycled for the interior. The DLC pack actually has the files for the interior specific engine sounds, which really could've been put to use as the past F40PH DLCs and the GP40PH DLC have them coded into the proxyxml. Even following the update the Comet sounds aren't that great either, the Comet V bell hasn't been applied, neither have been the window slide sounds either which allow for the sounds to be not as muffled. This pack has a number of neat features as well, such as the toggle-able HEP generator. Physics are generally good, but it is advisable to download FanRailer's excellent physics modification. Textures are crisp for the most part, although the cablight on the F40PH generally creates significant lag. This is a nice pack to own for the NJT diehards.
