Mike mentioned:

"I completely concur. I was startled not long ago to read in the editorial
section of MR that the hobby was entering the "sound" era and that speakers
could be placed in our models to generate renditions of real locomotives. I
thought...golly...wonder if Terry is unaware that some of us had been
generating sound from our locomotives since 1981."

Maybe Terry was just noticing that manufacturers were starting to sell
engines already equipped with sound units so that the modeler didn't need to
model anything. That could explain why MR tends toward the ready-to-run
crowd. <g>
