going to the first post, the instructions add a marker say to look for a balloon icon to add a marker.

Don't see it, so I guess updates are not possible?

I had that one on my HO layout circa 1967

Tim.  Thanks for the reply. It saves me from going crazy trying to figure it out. Lol.

Oh wow this is very similar to some of the old electronic machines we used in our childhood.

I’m Pat from Kansas.  I’m retired, sold house in the city, and now living on an 80 acre farm.  Twenty acres hay and 60 acres trees/rock formations, waterfalls and large pond. Was planning to model N scale but downsizing as we build a new house. Woke up and realized I had actually up sized my area to build a G scale layout outside!

Bought my first locomotive yesterday.  It is a Burlington Route Gp 7/9 G scale by USA Trains.  Plan to run dead rail since pretty rough country to use rail power.  Have decided to go with RailPro based on a lot of reading and positive reviews by owners.  I want to model Chicago, Burlington & Quincy through Burlington Route, Burlington Northern, and into BNSF.  My Grandfather was a certified CB&Q Operator between Lincoln and Omaha Nebraska 1917-1937.  He watched steam locomotives phasing out and the introduction of diesel with the Burlington Route Prairie Zephyr that ran from Lincoln to Omaha to St Joe to Kansas City and back daily starting in 1934.  That must have been a real sight to see that streamliner screaming through Ashland NE at 70-90 mph after watching steam all his life!

Track layout plan to date is an elongated folded figure eight about 46’ by 12’ with turnouts for industries common to this part of the country (grain, cement, gas, and oil).  Also multiple passenger stops along the route.  I would like to add a large loop going out into the “wilderness” that surrounds my house for outback stops. I want a switch yard for operations.  This will be a mult-step approach over time.  Trying to determine if raised rail is the way to go.  I’m 67 and the knees and back aren’t what they used to be.

Anyway, I have lots of questions regarding converting my new locomotive over to battery and then RailPro. Also, no sound in the locomotive right now so need to add a speaker.  Joining this forum seemed like a logical step in the learning/doing process.  Also other questions regarding track purchase but probably better asked on other forums like My Large Scale and G Scale Central.

Thanks for accepting me as a new member.  I look forward to our interactions together.

There's no way to do that with RP's old format looped sounds. I haven't looked at how the ULT horn / whistle sounds are played but there's no provision for us to make ULT sounds anyway.

General Discussion / Interesting thought about HC-2
« Last post by darryl.trains on August 08, 2022, 10:48:17 PM »
My HC-2 went belly up so I sent in for repair. Then I realised that it was the most important key to operation. If you want to wait for it to be fixed and be out of operation for a long time, okay. I didn't want that to happen so I ordered another HC from Bill. I guess Ring is pretty busy as they did respond but maybe they would get to it this week. I sent it way back in early July !!!
Happy here in Arid-Zona.  8)
RailPro Specific Help & Discussion / Steam Whistle Variation in looped file?

I have the railsounds hooter whistle installed in my engine and I noticed that if you do a short whistle that it sounds one way.  If you hold it longer, it starts to have variations.   Very nice effect.  Does anyone know how to do that on homemade looped files.  I would love to have some quilling with my steam and diesel whistle sounds.

Feel free to add your custom sounds to the sound file page.  It really helps out other members.  I have put a couple fun diesels sounds up!
