The Big Boy is too big for my layout. We would like to get a different Lionel steam engine that has that same loud deep echoing horn sound. Does anyone have any suggestions. We listened the the Lionel Niagara but that is not the sound we are looking for. It's not a deep and doesn't seem to echo. We prefer to a but a new engine made within the last 2 years. Any help would be appreciated.
If you want to hear a big boy horn listen to the Blue Comet starter set!
Like @gunrunnerjohn stated, the LM LC2 Big Boy might be a good choice.
I did a video review recently on the most recent Lionmaster LC Plus 2.0 Bigboy - The deep echoing whistle is the best feature on this engine and it will do O31 curves. There are also dual speakers in the tender to help give it some depth.
