Other than Legacy’s 200 nonlinear speed steps accessed via its antiquated jukebox remote, it ain’t much to brag about these days. A fully round boiler and a proper gear ratio is where it’s at. The Legacy 9000’s exhaust doesn’t sound correct with its evenly spaced chuffs unless I’m hearing things wrong.
You are correct. In my opinion, Lionel used an articulated sound file for their UP 9000, instead of making the correct "off-beat" 3-cylinder exhaust sound.
I think MTH got the chuffing right with its off-timed lope.
