TophobbyTrains N Scale EMD SDP40F Feature Packed Sound & Light Installation Package (loco not included)

The TopHobbyTrains N Scale EMD SDP40F sound package includes full bi-directional operation and lighting using the latest technology from ESU LokSound.  TophobbyTrains doesn't just add a sound decoder to the model.  We recreate, in miniature, the Amtrak look by prototypically re-illuminating and animating all of the SDP40F lights.  Additionally our 'On The Fly' operator options allow the miniature engineer lighting control during operating sessions not found in other sound installed locomotives.  The full featured LokSound ver 4 decoder provides very fine motor control taking full advantage of the superior Kato engineering.  LokSound renound sound reproduction abilities are fully realized in this mod with our custom sound project featuring many added sounds providing a realistic fun filled replica of the prototype for your railroad empire.

LokSound V4.0 decoders help many H0 model railroaders to operate their locos with realistic sounds, something that friends of the smaller N and TT gauges don´t need to do without. We even once more reduced the new LokSound micro V4.0 decoder´s dimensions compared to its forerunner. With a size of only 25mm x 10.6mm x 3.8mm it is the world´s smallest LokSound decoder!

Since there are also no more mechanical obstacles in the way, it is a pleasure to enjoy all the decoder´s features: the LokSound micro V4.0 incorporates a complete digital decoder, which, besides DCC and Motorola®, also understands Selectrix®. Beside the two light outputs we were even able to integrate a sound-section, equal to that of its bigger brothers and two user selectable function outputs.



We take pride in being a premier DCC Sound installer for HO and N Scale locomotives with patrons world wide.
