Digital sound introduces realistic locomotive sound files to model locomotives and is available to suit all major scales and gauges as well as steam and diesel locomotives. In these features we show you how to install Digital Command Control (DCC) sound decoders from ZIMO, ESU and Doehler & Haass with sound files from Digitrains, Locoman Sounds, Legomanbiffo, YouChoos and more. New guides are added every month together sound demonstration videos for each locomotive so you can hear the results for yourself on our test track.
