Dallee Steam Auto Sound

Steam Sound Systems with the 'G' Operator in Mind

Automated Whistle Play Patterns

These STEAM LOCOMOTIVE SOUND SYSTEM's were designed for the model railroader utilizing magnetic trips of the Whistle and Bell. Each activation of the Whistle switch triggers a different prototypical play pattern of the Steam Locomotive's Whistle. The Bell activates first by tripping the Bell sound on. The second trip will signal the Bell to turn off. Whistle triggers can occur during Bell triggers as well. This system can operate from track power and/or battery power. The steam locomotive sound system will automatically adjust the chuff rate with changes in track or motor voltage. It can also be synchronized with optional switch inputs or utilizing our optical input. Sounds produced are similar to the standard DC sound systems (Dallee Catalog, page 7) except the Whistle and Bell are triggered on and off with various Whistle play patterns. The sound systems can be mounted in an engine or car (with track pickups) or they can be utilized in a stationary mode with the Whistle and Bell being triggered by either the train carrying a magnet or other momentary switch input. These systems are packaged with two reed switches. To make life easier, we made available the more pleasant and popular steam whistles. All 9xx series sound systems have the automatic Whistle / Horn play patterns. Steam sound systems available are listed below as well as our price schedule. They have the same physical appearance as the standard DC sound systems shown previously.

While these systems can be utilized with Radio Receivers and Stationary use, we recommend using the Standard DC types that do not have the "auto­play" feature. By utilizing a standard DC type system, the Whistle will only play as long as you keep the transmitter function or switch input activated instead of playing random Whistle patterns when activated. This enables you to play any pattern desired. For those that desire both reed switch and radio receiver use alternately or simultaneously, the "auto­play" units are necessary.
