PS-1 Sounds Installed in 89' Autorack

I installed the electronics from a PS-1 sound equipped boxcar into an 89' autorack.  The most time consuming part of the job was the modifcation of truck with the magnet and sensor.  In fact, both trucks were a bit of a pain because the orginal trucks on the autorack are like no other lionel roller bearing truck with which I was familiar.  The Lionel powered roller bearing trucks both had to be modified, to fit on the weak threaded steel post pressed into the floor and I hacked off the lobster claw to install kadees.  All in all I am pleased with the outcome.  I really wish Lionel would make sound cars with Super Bass to really emulate the experience of a train rolling by you.  For now this will do....
