Has anyone brought up freight sounds or animal sounds boxcars yet?  I've been wanting an animal sounds boxcar that plays Ray Stevens' In The Mood before switching to the theme from Psycho (as clucked by hens)...then hitting the glissando of The Murder as they go into the slaughter house.

I prefer the older sound cars with chickens, pigs, cows, and horses.  There may be some for turkeys I think.  The volume is controllable and the sounds are random.  It's battery  operated with an on off switch.   The sounds continue after the car stops but quickly taper off

As for Fastrack noise, I installed 1/8" neoprene padding under the track (which is screwed to plywood roadbed) and the noise does not seem bad at all--never drowning out the chuffing or engine sounds.

Bruce,

Specifically which 1/8" neoprene padding did you use?    There are several types - some actual rubber and some foam (closed cell and open cell).

Thanks,

John

I have just the product for you.

MP3 Universal Sound Module

You can program any sounds of any length onto this one.

I used a commercial grade rubber type. It came in a large, heavy roll. Easy to cut with heavy duty scissors or a #11 blade. I cut it just slightly wider than the Fastrack and made paper templates for the curves. By using a "cookie cutter" approach I was able to minimize the waste. Leftover pieces are handy for shimming.

Ah.  Great idea.  I thought you covered the entire layout with it.  Cuts down on the weight as well.

Thanks,

When I was 13, we moved into a new house.  I had a room in the attic that was 16' wide and half the house long.  My dad enclosed the space with plastic and put in a duct from our wood stove to heat it.  You could go downstairs and follow the trains on the ceiling through the house.  I am all for loud trains.
