Having never had a chance to work with multi-loco consists, I'm a little curious how sounds is handled. Do they both produce their respective engine sounds in kind? Do they both respond to fx commands like bells etc or does just the lead loco?

I thought about this as I consider getting a pair of VIA F40PH units from Rapido, one Rebuilt and one As Delivered (as pairing I see in a lot of photos). It occured to me that they both have a HEP sound which can be invoked, but I would only ever want the Rebuilt to respond to F5, not the As Delivered. Possible?

If consisted properly, only the lead locomotive's bell and horn will be heard, while the engine sounds of each locomotive will be heard, and rise and fall with the throttle.
