    I recently installed a sound decoder in a Walthers H10-44. This is the old model made by Roco. It is very heavy and runs well. I modified it for DCC, ground out the top weight, and installed a small Tsunami 2 1100 sound decoder. I put a "sugar cube" speaker on the rear truck.

    The sound is surprisingly good, but I'm unsure what the correct horn is. I can't find it listed here, so I chose a Leslie. Anyone know which sound is correct?

    Most commonly Leslie A200. Note my caution about volume levels in the Workshop Wednesday thread.

    Yes, a single, long trumpet Leslie. Don't know much about what sound to use.

    Usually, but not always (see the FP7's for example), the Frisco chose Leslie horns.

    I had picked Leslie A125, but changed to A200. Not the best horn sound, but I like the A200 better.
