The Mylocosound card is pretty good with a number of sound variations, bells and whistles (yes genuinely) and not overly expensive. It works well with the Annie chuff trigger.Oddball it might be, but it's still a good-looking locomotive. My Bachmann ten-wheeler with the all-metal Baker valve gear has never let me down since the day I bought it, almost twenty years ago. I'm even thinking about putting r/c in it and a decent sound system - any recommendations in that respect would be would appreciated.
The only drawback that I have come across is that Bachmann locos do not draw enough current for the re-chargeable PP3 9v battery to re-charge.
I've tried to overcome this by using a voltage step-up unit set at 18v. I haven't used the loco since I installed it, so can't report on the success or otherwise.
