  1. DCC Forum (Digital Command Control)
    This is my 1st post and first time on this forum, so forgive me if i sound like a bit of a DCC noob. Over the past months I've gotten 2 Scaletrains locomotives, both new and both equipped with ESU Loksound V5 decoders. As a horn fanatic, I like to occasionally change the horns using CV 163, so...

  3. HO Scale
    I recently completed an install of a loksound decoder into my athearn big boy and I used to 2 sugar cube speakers from soundtraxx. The sound was almost silent even when cranked and I could barely hear them over the sound of the wheels. What speaker(s) should I use ?
  4. DCC Forum (Digital Command Control)
    I bought this f3 with tsunami diesel sound. It runs and sounds great but the engine does not idle. Once you turn off the throttle the engine dies its shut down sequence and the does the start up sequence when it starts moving. Obviously this isn't prototypical and I need to change this. Is there...
  5. N Scale
    Hello, while not wanting to open a rat's nest, I do have a question about DCC+sound decoders and which a new person should choose? I am not new to N scale but coming back to it since the 1990's and BOY, everything is better and going electronic, which is fine but the choices are rather...

  7. General Model Train Discussion
    Hello all, I have a couple HO gauge Athearn Genesis Locos with factory installed SoundTraxx Tsunami2. The locos are great and the sound is impressive. When the loco is placed on the track the sound immediately turns on. First you hear the loco start and then the engine winding up. I know the...
  8. DCC Forum (Digital Command Control)
    After 15 years I finally have space to rebuild my layout! Problem is, when I packed it all up way back when, I'd just bought the MRC Prodigy - not the Advance - and never even really figured out how to use it. This week I just got two new locos - a Rapido RS-11 with a LokSound decoder, and a...
  9. DCC Forum (Digital Command Control)
    Hey all, I've been sitting on the proper decoder for one of my dozen or so projects for a month or two now. Unfortunately besides plugging them into sockets, I have minimal experience with decoders (and DCC itself) - I figured I would turn to here before I made a several hundred dollar mistake...
  10. HO Scale
    I recently purchased an Atlas Master HO 10003117 Silver Series GE Dash 8-40CW Diesel DCC Ready CSX 'Boxcar' Logo 'Monon Heritage Decal' #7670. But whenever I press the button to make a noise it puts the train in reverse for a second. I have been in the hobby about all my life, but I have just...
