|MRC is giving model railroaders the opportunity to bring to life dozens of G and O scale locomotives with this new sound decoders. The 1817 Diesel Decoder contains Alco244, SD60, SD70 and EMD567B prime mover sounds. Unlike others who use computer generated sounds, this decoder contains MRC's true, live capture, full fidelity sounds like prime mover diesel rumbles, actually recorded (railside) by MRC's Sound Engineers from the real locomotives. Equipped with MRC's world renowned Brilliance sound, and dynamic, super-fidelity 1½ speaker, the big locomotives truly come to life, from startup to shutdown. From the slowest creep to top-end, experience railroading like never before. It's all there… all 28 NMRA available functions, and naturally, MRC provides user programmable, applicable horns, bells, brakes, air releases, pop valves, cooling fans, coupling sounds, fire box sounds and more. This decoder has a full complement of lighting functions too. All this without any modification needed to the body shell or chassis. Not just for DCC systems, this decoder is dual mode so Power Pack Users aren't left out in the cold! DC railroaders can get brilliantly synchronized sounds on their layout as well. And amazingly…..
