AC Steam Sound

Unlike other sound systems playing pretend sounds we play the actual raw, pure, appropriate sounds from the real locomotive. Just like it's suppose to be. Operate your railroad locomotive with the correct sounds instead of the make believe sounds. While some Whistle's aren't very pleasing to be heard, they are indeed correct! Whistles are warning devices designed to get your attention, not something that is to be a pleasurable sound. More pleasing multi-chime whistles came into existence during the later years of passenger service. We also have them in the lineup.

With our sound systems you can actually produce real Whistle play patterns to signal exactly what the locomotive action is going to be or signal for a grade crossing, station stop, or departing from the station. Play the real WHISTLE the way you want to. The Whistle will play as long as you request it to play, dips & all (whistle dependent). No canned play patterns here! Hear the real BELL operate. Hear the EXHAUST CHUFFS increase to your selected speed automatically or if you choose, correctly synchronized (optional feature). Listen for the BLOWERS, AIR PUMPS, and SAFETY VALVE while your locomotive is at rest under fire. The whistles are as pleasing or obnoxious as the real whistle. Don't forget, they were warning devices. More pleasing sounding whistles came about as passenger service evolved.

The STEAM SOUND SYSTEM is available with different whistle types, we also change the other sounds, such as the bell or exhaust chuff, as appropriate for the type of locomotive that would use the selected whistle! Please refer to the following pages and the price schedule for present types available. These sound systems are designed and assembled in the U.S.A. offering long term reliability and support.
