Real motor sounds, with true 8 notches, just like the real thing. Unlike other sound systems playing pretty sounds we play the 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 pretend sounds. While some horn's aren't very pleasing to
be heard, they are indeed correct! Horns are warning devices designed to get your attention, not something that is to be a pleasurable sound. With our sound systems you can actually produce real horn 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. The horn will play as long as you request it to play. No canned play patterns here! Operate the real BELL with the motor running. Hear the BRAKE RELEASE as your locomotive starts to pull out. While novel in some systems, in our systems, we always require the brakes to release before applying any motor power. When motor power is applied, it is done in a smooth transistion, no jack rabbit starts here. After all, it just wouldn't be appropriate. While checking for other sounds, listen for the COMPRESSOR RELIEF VALVE while your at idle or are running down the tracks.
This is the most accurate, realistic, playable, sound system on the market. They are the closest to real life locomotives! If you add the LocoMatic™ controller you not only get lighting features, you also get the ability to have the locomotive operate at notch 8 while sitting still. Locomotives do this to pump the air up in the tanks so that the train can release the brakes on all of the cars leaving the locomotive as the controlling element.

The DIESEL SOUND SYSTEM is available with different horns and prime mover sounds. Please refer to the following pages and the price schedule for present types available. Choose the system that fits your locomotive. Visit our web site for installation instructions and pictures under Technical Downloads, Product Instruction sheets. These sound systems are designed and assembled in the U.S.A. offering long term reliability and support. For those needing to know, a prime mover is the actual motor inside the locomotive. Different manufacturers of the locomotves used different motors which all had a different sound. This is why we have such a wide selection of prime movers!
