Hear your steam locomotive the way the real ones sound with our steam system sound for DC model railroading that will fit HO gauge trains! Real sounds from the real thing. Play the real whistle the way you want to, dips & all. Hear the real bell operate. Hear the cylinders blow down as your locomotive starts to pull out and the chuffs increase to your speed. Listen for the blowers and safety values while your locomotive is at rest under fire. Sounds from actual recordings.

The Steam Sound System is available with different whistle types, we also change the other sounds to make different sound systems more interesting! Please refer to the price schedule for present types available. If you don't see yours there we are either working on it or if the need is there we just might possibly do it for all requesting it! We are constantly in search of good clean usable recordings of various types of sounds. If you have some that you think we might possibly use for your particular sound or you have the real thing that we could come and make a studio recording give us a call !

Presently available whistles range from robust multi-chime passenger whistles to the shrill single chime hooter used in freight or yard service. While the G3 passenger and I10 freight whistles are actual Reading Company whistles they are generic enough to represent many North American railroads. The G3 is also very close to the Colorado narrow gauge whistles and the I10 is similar to European Hooters. Also available is a range of Pennsylvania RR three chime passenger whistle (a pleasing mellow whistle) to the hollow sounding Banshee. The SP GS4 passenger service whistle (a full low pitched whistle with a low starting pitch). The NYC and the NKP Berkshire are other melodic sounding whistle with the C&O's full low pitched whistle.
