    Right on! I love that sound. Must be a Tsunami.

    I do believe it's diggin' taters.

    Pretty neat, the sound, really is worth the effort and price. Seems like it brings a whole feeling to modeling.

    Guys, I believe Howard edits the sound into his videos; they are not decoders.

    Darn. I thought I was hearing a decoder. Oh well... still pretty good stuff!

    Keith is right. I take real sounds and dub over. If sound decoders sounded that good they would be well worth the price!

    Huh? What'd you say?

    I only have to face two more hearing tests before I retire. I've got my fingers crossed that I can continue to eek by them so I don't have to spend the $$$ for hearing aids.

    You can get a decent bike for the price of hearing aids. One nice thing about them is you can turn them off :)

    Nicely done, Howard. I have to say I really liked the look of the A and B unit lash-up on the track behind - nice looking models. The ex-ATSF caboose looks pretty good, too. And, while it may have been discussed elsewhere, those are some pretty serious brackets holding up your upper level.

    Since it's really the topic of this thread, the SD40-2 moves pretty smoothly and makes for a good looking lead unit. I'm curious how you shot this video-looks like maybe you had a camera mounted on a train on the adjacent track? In any event, the eye-level view is nice.

    Best Regards,
