SOUND

Model Rail (UK) - - Beginner’s Guide To DCC -

This is the big ben­e­fit of DCC - re­al­is­tic sounds. Some de­coders come with a loud­speaker that syn­chro­nises par­tic­u­lar ac­tions with re­al­is­tic noise, the most ob­vi­ous be­ing the ‘chuff­ing’ sound that changes as speed in­creases. Other func­tions, of­ten ini­ti­ated by the key­pad, in­clude sounds like whis­tles or horns, wheel spin, clank­ing, air pumps - even sta­tion an­nounce­ments. It is pos­si­ble to add sounds or re-al­lo­cate but­tons by al­ter­ing the CVS. This means you do need to read the man­ual or you could sim­ply beg or bribe a friendly DCC ex­pert!
