    Default Sounds for a Bombardier BiLevel Coach

    Hi all,

    Over a year ago I started a project where I put a SoundTraxx Soundcar decoder and speaker into an Athern Bombardier.

    This week I started working on the project again and am wondering what sound settings would be correct, or the closest to it.

    The options are listed on the sound car page:
    https://www.soundtraxx.com/dsd/soundcar/soundcar.php

    Or here:
    Airhorns & Whistles Bells
    Nathan K5LA Modern Cast
    Nathan K5LA Amtrak Version Bronze Cast
    Nathan K3L Cast
    Nathan K3LA Electronic bell
    Nathan P3 Gong bell
    Wabco AA2 BeastBanter
    Leslie S2B Cattle
    Wabco E2 Sheep
    Hancock Air Whistle
    Caboose Whistle (1)
    Caboose Whistle (2)




    Thanks for your help!

    While searching for sounds for my gensets I found the horn is a Nathan K5LA. Bell I'm guessing is a modern cast.

    You mean the cab car, right? Because that's the car with the horn. While you're at it, and since you're putting a decoder in there, are you planning to add head/ditch lights as well?
    What commuter system are you modeling? Many of them use a K5LA. I know Southern California's Metrolink does.


    Metro Red Ln (Metro Red Line)

    Ya sorry, the cab car. I have flashing ditch lights and headlights installed. Taillights up next I got side tracked with a couple gensets that arrived today

    Doing Metrolink, looks like I need to swap my white ditch lights out for some yellows!

    Here is where I left the project last:


    I've revamped the wipers and installed the flashing ditch lights, and headlights, since then.

    The bell seems to be slower IRL, time to check some settings.
