DCCSound offers authentic sound projects, made in Australia, to suit ESU's LokSound decoders. You can BYO decoder, or purchase decoders direct from us. Please browse through our library of Sound decoders and see what we have to offer. 

WAGR L class

Recorded in 2014 prior to scrapping, only DCCSound can offer authentic sound recordings of L251, the class leader. Enquire now if you want the correct sound in your L.

Choice of three air horns, as fitted during the life of the locos, the sound project suits LokSound 21 pin decoders, available now from DCCSound.

Remastered NR class project with Full Throttle now available!

F1   7FDL-16 prime mover start-up & shutdown
F2   Long horn (NR 5 chime)
F3   Coupler crash, airline release and recouple
F4   GE dynamic brake fans
F5   Drive hold (FT)
F6   Brake application (FT)
F7   Switching mode & NR shunting bell
F8   Air park brake application
F9   Short horn (NR 5 chime)
F10 Curve squeal
F11  Aux 1 lighting output
F12  Aux 2 lighting output
ESU's new Full-throttle feature allows the diesel modeler to easily simulate a loaded or empty train by using a single “Drive Hold” function key. When F5 is pressed, the motor will remain at that speed, while the sound can be controlled independently from the motion via the throttle!  This new feature gives the operator the ability to have the train crawl in notch 8 or coast at 80 kph. Then, by releasing the Drive Hold function button you simply go back to the pre-defined motor. The feature removes the need for two separate manual notching keys on your DCC cab (F5/F6). Now that F6 has become available for other tasks, we've developed and assigned a physical independent brake to it. So instead of using the speed dial to bring a train to a stop, F6 can now be used, as seen with the real prototype.

The NR project has been remastered in 2017 to include a new sound flow for faster throttle response, incorporation of Full Throttle features and will suit either Austrains (8 pin) or Auscision's (21 pin) models fitted with a V4 LokSound decoder.  If you have access to a LokProgrammer & a V4 decoder from DCCSound, we can email the updated NR project at no charge.
