If you’ve ever longingly looked or listened to the wonderful sound effects possible with DCC trains and wanted something similar for your DC locomotives Train Tech have just the thing.
The Train Tech SFX20 (for diesel locomotives) and it’s counterpart for steam— the SFX10 — are simple drop-in electrics that will work in OO gauge locos. They don’t need special wiring or digital control and give realistic locomotive sound effects.
I recently tried one out in and covered it on my YouTube channel so you can hear what they sound like.
At around £40, Train Tech have managed to cram a lot into them and they’re certainly a lot cheaper than DCC sound systems (even assuming you already have DCC fitted) and remarkably simple to fit. If you want sound from your locos they’re definitely worth considering.
