    Default New Bachmann Steamers Listed With "Sound Value" DCC Sound?

    I have an early Bachmann Berkshire with "Sound Value" DCC Sound and an EM-1 and 4-8-4 N&W J class with Sound Traxx "Econmai" DCC Sound. While I am very happy with the "Econami" equipped locomotives, the "Sound Value" locomotive leaves a lot to be desired. Has Bachmann gone back to the earlier DCC sound decoders?

    I don't know how often Bachmann updates their website. But they are still listing the N scale DDC sound locomotives coming with the Sound Traxx Econami sound decoders.
    Just an old gandy dancer.
