Re: Tsunami sound for GN Y-1 (PRR FF2)
toggle quoted message Show quoted text
My railroad career started for the Milw Road in Montana/Idaho, which had electrified locomotives. I can tell you from expierence they are almost sound less. A little gear noise, occasional air compressor and at speed, a little wheel/rail noise and at the correct spots bell or whistle. They can be soundless machines. specially coming down grade.
The trailing freight cars can make more noise, than the locomotive.

I installed a tsunami as I recall that was a rather generic electric. The truth is that all I really wanted was the bell and the whistle for operating sessions. I will tell you that if you have the PFM Y-1’s there is very little room. The good news is that it will pull my O-8, with coasting drive, and 30 cars plus up a 2.2% grade. Love watching it under catenary. No power on the steam engine, just the electric.
