Folks,

Just purchased an AristoCraft 2-8-0 Delton C-16 locomotive. Haven't received it yet but I think it has factory smoke but no sound. I believe I can purchase a Plug and Play unit for sound. I run DC. I think the recommended board would be a QSI Titan. Can anyone tell me specifics about that board? Is it easy to install. Will it be sufficient for sound in that locomotive?

Thanks for any and all help.

Johnny

Not into sound myself but some looking online yielded some info on the QSI sound board.

I don't know anything about the QSI stuff. However, if that doesn't work out, Phoenix has sound units for Large Scale and they have a wide range of sounds, including the C-16:

Alas Phoenix PB-8/11 are only suited for DCC and Battery Power R/C.

Unfortunately I saw that on the Phoenix website.

I am not looking for "top of the line" sound but the loco is such a beauty I thought it should have some sound.

Thanks for you help.

Johnny

Not exactly correct.
The P8 is definitely DCC or battery R/C only.
The PB11 is designed for regular DC track power as well.  It has a 3.6 volt back up battery as a keep alive for a little while when the track power is off.
I sell a few P8's and the occasional PB11 depending on the requirements.

By far the most popular sound system I sell is the MyLocosound.

Tony,
Thanks for that info.

That.....is good news.

Now.....can you tell me about "MyLocosound"?
My budget is limited but I would like sound of course.

Johnny

Tony,
I have looked at the MyLocosound website.

Do these factory 2-8-0 C-16's come with axle driven chuff?

I'm sure I could look and know if it does or not.

I will of course stand corrected if I am wrong, but I don't think there are any AristoCraft locos that have a mechanically or optically timed chuff cam.
I like the MyLocosound steam sound but find the diesel version a little less convincing.

Thanks Tony.
I will check when I get home.
Cost wise the MyLocosound is right up my alley.
Would you recommend any other "plug and play" sound systems that I, as an inexperienced electronics guy, could easily install?
(I am asking here on the Freerails site so that others might learn a bit from our conversation. I hope you don't mind.)
