Kato USA C44-9W and AC4400CW
In the mid 1980's GE changed it's 16cyl FDL design to include a different exhaust silencer, a new electric compressor (often known as the "Whoop compressor") and changed some of the electronics of their locomotives. These differences, among a few others, led to a distinct change in the sounds from the GE 16cyl FDL often found from the U25Bs on through the Dash-7 series of the locomotives. Somewhere along the line, GE also added a "7" to their FDL line of engines designating that these engines were based on the Cooper Bessemer design.
Dash 8 40-B
NOTE: Some AC6000CW were built with 16cyl 7FDL's and were later converted to 16cyl 7HDL's. Some were never converted. Please refer to the prototype for reference.
Passenger Locos including: P40DC and P42DC were built slightly different and contained HEP (Head End Power). For these engines plesae use SELECT sound file #73482 or the V4.0 sound file #74482.
We have incorporated many NEW FEATURES in this sound file including:
-Both regular prime mover and "Smart Start" prime mover
-Brand new horns
-Proper working dynamic brakes. Prime mover spools down to idle and then rises as dynamic brake fan runs. The engine brakes faster due to the dynamic brake motor logic.
-Throttle sensitive prime mover sound paths
- Brand new spitter sounds - slow and fast!
- Spitter sounds upon shutdown for 1 minute then automatically turn off
- We have added an additional prime mover that more closely mimics the prototype when engaging notch one.
As with all SELECT decoders there are up to 16 separate horns, 2 separate brake squeals and 2 bells include on this one sound profile! All changeable using CV48.
