Challenger Sounds

As I wrote in the January 2018 DCC Corner column I replaced the old decoder in my first generation Athearn Genesis Clinchfield 4-6-6-4 Challenger with a new TCS WOWSound version 4 decoder. Along with the decoder I tossed in a 28mm high bass speaker that accentuates the deep bass frequencies of the Challenger exhaust and three chime Hancock Union Pacific whistle. I love the new sounds and the challenge of using the WOWSound prototype brakes to bring this big monster to a stop. Let’s listen to the sounds as the big 4-6-6-4 enters Charlottesville on my Piedmont Southern layout.
