Four EMD's NYC GP40's pull frieght through Janesville S Curve and over a series of bridges. Ditch lights flashing motors singing. It's always the favorite route to take for freights going down grade from the upper deck. I uploaded the file to youtube.com

I uploaded the file to my web space and to youtube.com The video on my web page (Windows Only) is at a much higher resolution than the one on youtube. It's the better video.

Sound Traxx

Sounded GREAT, keep up the work!
Hi Josh
That's and old SoundTraxx EMD 2n GEN. I liked the high pitch sound. I have three of them 2 are of the low cost version. The old low cost are no where near as loud but I talked to Soundtraxx at the big E show and they said the new LC sound decoder are much better and louder. My layout started 10 years ago. I bought a model church which my wife built and then a double compound saw. I thought I be needing one.

Diesel Detail Freak
Cool, I've been looking at sound, but I dunno if I'll have it quite so loud, considering I'll have LOTS of trains...

Loud Engines

I told you I use to work for the railroad. In the cab there is no louder engine than a FL9. I think because it was a combined diesel and an electric engine a lot of the insulation behind the cab's back wall was ommited. That's where all the electric switches and relays where housed for the electrical side of the engine. So the sound of the diesel came right into the cab. So after 12 years of that I don't hear so well. So if you don't need loud than any of the new engines with the sound already installed should be great. I do like the horn of the BLT NYC F7's. It's different.
