    Hi I am new to the site so please forgive me if I ask a dumb question. I have 2 Athearn Genesis HO Scale Frisco F units with the older MRC sound units. I believe this sound decoder offers 4 different horns but they are not labeled other than horn 1-4. Is anyone familiar with this decoder and is there a particular horn offered that is Frisco prototype? If not maybe I need to upgrade these units. Also I have a Frisco business car that I bought on Ebay that is painted in Frisco Blue and lettered as Magic City. I was wondering if this car actually existed. Thanks for any help.

    Expensive Leslie 5-chime horns. There's a youtube recording. Search for it - Frisco diesel horn. A7 chord, first inversion: C#, E, G, A, C# very jazzy, chosen by the USMC Band Commander many years ago.
