  1. Dana is correct, GN did run all first generation road switchers long hood forward; however, Atlas did not correctly mark the unit to indicate this.
    Have to agree with Mr. Binder, the turbo whine was quite evident; and the horn sound wasn’t all that nifty either.

  2. Excellent presentation Dana. The area you chose on the MR&T was perfect and hope to see you at Trainfest this weekend.

  3. To James Rohrbach: Yes, Cody helped me a lot by coming up with a plausible GN freight train. To Allan and anyone else in the Milwaukee area this weekend, I hope to see you at Trainfest!
    Thanks for watching,

  4. I purchased and returned two of these non sound units as there was no DCC plug as advertised. I have no idea if the entire run was that way or not but I was disappointed.

  5. I have 2 of these, they don’t sound anything like that. I agree that might be the wrong sound file in that loco, because it does not sound like a GP7.
