Model Railroad Sound system

Document Thumbnail

The romance of railroading lives on thousands of scale model railroads throughout the country. While visual realism has reached a high degree of perfection, realistic sound has been notable by its absence. An all-electronic system has been developed to generate those memorable sounds of the steam locomotive, the bark of exhausting steam, the distinctive wail of the chime whistle, and the rhythmic toll of the bell, and to reproduce these sounds from a loudspeaker carried in the model locomotive.
