It could be that 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 !

  • Baldwin,
  • Trainmaster,
  • ALCO (both Road Engine and Switcher Engine),
  • Fairbanks Morse,

Did you know that when using the sound system as a stationary unit you can also use our TRAK-DT system to automatically switch speakers about the layout?  Drawings for this type of operation are available upon request and are also located in our Model Railroad Wiring Guide #15.  When operating the sound system as a stationary unit you must a separate power source. Item #689, a plug-in wall power supply, is ideal for this.  You can also wire a switch to turn off the prime mover and just operate the horn and bell with our items #524 and 618.
