User Driven Proto-Sounds

Greetings all,

Just wondering.

Maybe this topic has been discussed here or elsewhere. Have any of the O scale model train manufacturers given any consideration to putting SD or micro SD media cards into their locomotives with sound software we could load on our computers and then transfer to the loco? We could then load and arrange sounds from a catalog within the software. 


Have a great weekend everyone and happy railroading.

I believe Mark describes it pretty well at the link above and in his thread here on the forum. He has done some pretty amazing things here. 

Marks' program is different than the OPs request/suggestion, which also sounds like a great idea. Now if we could just convince MTH and Lionel...
