The Kato Sound Box has been developed as a joint effort between engineers at Kato and Soundtraxx to craft a simple, versatile, and powerful sound system for use on non-DCC layouts. Completely self-contained, the Soundbox has a built in speaker and will allow modelers to enjoy an “In-Cab” experience while operating their favorite trains!
This Sound card will allow you to enjoy synchronized steam sounds from your Soundbox! Utilizing the Soundbox synchronization knob, you can accurately line-up the chuffs with the motion of your locomotive's side rods, which thanks to the Soundbox's back-EMF reading capabilities will continue to match pace with the locomotive, even as it goes up and down hills and changes speed!
Exhaust Chuff: Frisco #1522 Chuff
Three Selectable whistles + horns: FEF Whistle, GS-4 Horn, GS-4 Whistle
Prototypical dynamo, air pump, and blower sounds play automatically
Designed to work with your GS-4 or FEF-3 4-8-4's, but can also be used with other large steam locomotives!
Please note that this Soundcard is not a stand-alone product - it is an add-on for the 22-101-1 Kato Soundbox.
