Be se­lec­tive with sound

Model Rail (UK) - - Stogumber -

This is my first DCC layout and I found it much eas­ier to wire than the old-fash­ioned ana­logue sys­tem. It also seems to be much more re­li­able, as the track and wheels seems to stay much cleaner with DCC (at least they do with my Gauge­mas­ter Prodigy sys­tem). It’s sound that adds a lot of the re­al­ism to mod­els, but you need to choose care­fully. For ex­am­ple, I much pre­fer Howes Model’s sound files than those fit­ted by the main man­u­fac­tur­ers. Yes, I have to send mod­els to have them in­stalled, but I find the re­sult is worth it. Lis­ten to sam­ples from the dif­fer­ent sound spe­cial­ists and choose the ones you think sound best.
