LGB MOGUL - can I keep the factory sounds with RP?
« on: January 05, 2021, 03:08:41 AM »
Hello, Iím new here.

I come from an n scale background and recently got into g gauge because I found a really good deal on track and old rolling stock. I also have more space outside than I do inside so it just made sense to have a garden railroad. Decided Iíd give it a try and it sure is fun! So I have an LGB mogul and would like to run rail pro. I already have converted a Bachmann Annie over and it works great. Iím using the light steam sounds. 

However, since there is really only a single light steam sound from rail pro, I didnít want both steam engines sounding exactly the same. Hence, figured Iíd try to use the built-in LGB sounds.

If itís not possible, is there another way to have more than one steamer sound so if Iím
 running at the same time they donít sounding like the engine?

Thanks,

Brian

Welcome to the group, Brian.


I'm pretty sure you won't be able to use the built-in steam sounds, but you can load as many of Ring's steam sounds into the LM as it will hold. Currently, there are at least four. They are not bad, and Ring is working on a new ultimate steam sound as well as a new chuff that will be more synchronized than the current version. Since there is room for larger speakers in G scale locomotives, they should sound much better than HO.


Pictures of your garden layout would be welcome.  ;)

Run your train, not your brain. Get RailPro. It's a no-brainer.

I have RailPro in my LGB diesels, Alco's and the #50 switcher, I also have two LGB Moguls ready to go for the RailPro installs. My engines are ready to go and all wiring is wired to the tender, LED's installed, and the engines totally redone to a great looking Mogul. I personally don't care for the RailPro steam sounds and I want a NG steam sound like those in the C or K class D&RGW NG sounds. So for the time being the two Moguls are setting on the shelf in a glass case, they make very nice displays.
