      Not to hijack Tommy's thread, but back in the day...when I still had a mighty outdoor railroad empire I fiddled around with sounds a bit. My favorite outcome was arranged over three of my boxcars. I installed one sound card from ITT and one from RAM inside what was to become the middle boxcar; each card had a different flange squeal recording. I then drilled a bunch of holes in  the floors of each end of the other two boxcars. I installed two speakers face-down on each end of those boxcars. I then connected one speaker from each sound card to each speaker, using micro connectors from Minatronics. As a result, each boxcar played the sound from each card on individual speakers, separated by the boxcar in the middle. Confused yet? ;)

      All coupled up, here's the result, a proper short fast Grande freight:

      Sorry for the poor quality, but hey - it was 15+ years ago. In later years I built stockyards, and yes, my stock cars moo'd.

       

      Cheers,

      Matt

      We have also used ITT products for various sounds on our club layout with great results.  We have one in a church, one at a farm, as well as rolling stock such as trolleys.  We have also used their custom sound service with good results.

      I had the same idea!  Thought it was original.   My plan is to use the DFPlayer Mini MP3 player https://wiki.dfrobot.com/DFPlayer_Mini_SKU_DFR0299  It can be used standalone but I'd like to trigger with an accelerometer.
