Imagine with me for one minute the experience of getting caught at a railroad crossing and the dramatic event that ensues.  If you're a railfan, it's like having front row seats for a recital of Beethoven's 5th Symphony or AC/DC's For Those About To Rock.

As the gate's go down, you hear the faint wail of the locomotive horn on the horizon.
 
Seconds pass and the wail intensifies to a piercing harmony of air chimes and you feel the impending onslaught of twelve thousand horsepower racing against time.

A few seconds later you're awestruck by the mass and power of this rolling fracas hammering you in your seat.

As the power passes, your heart rate returns to normal and your gaze turns to the endless string of steel vessels being drug along by brute force.  

The "woosh" of the passing cars is almost therapeutic as you enjoy the passing canvas of corporate branding masked by graffiti expressionism... Modern Art. 
 
You note the cadence of steel wheels banging on a fresh track joint.  

You turn to look for the flat spot on the tired wheel of a worn out scrap steel gon knowing full well it coasting past you at thirty miles per hour.  

Which one is it! 

Suddenly your head spins again to catch the bark of a flange squealing off the hard edge of a hundred pound rail.  

The performance continues relentlessly for the next three hundred seconds with same intensity with which it began.

As the last car passes, your gaze turns to the steady pulse of the End-Of-Train marker signaling the end of this act.

You move along to your destination, hoping you might get lucky enough to get caught at the next crossing for an encore performance.

Recreating this symphony of sound in miniature

About SBS4DCC R-T-R Sound Cars....
 
Streamlined Backshop Services is now offering our exclusive stand-alone sound cars for sale. Long gone are the days when you wished you could hear your N-Scale sound-equipped diesel or steam locomotive. My sound cars are so loud, you'll have to turn the volume down! The best part of the design is that the unit operates on track power by using my exclusive truck mounted contacts.

 

Look Ma, no hands, no wires, no batteries!

 

The benefits of this design include:

 

No hassle design means no wires, no batteries, no hands.
Cars can be consisted with any decoder-equipped locomotive any time.
Cars can be equipped with almost any decoder you choose, price varies by model.
Some decoders are programmable so the sound file can updated as desired with the use of the appropriate programmer.
Many different car types can be used including box cars, reefers, gondolas, autoracks, some hoppers, some tank cars, express reefers and box cars, RPO cars, baggage cars, coaches, RDC's, tenders and dummy diesels, .
The car body acts as a massive speaker baffle providing an incredible range of sounds and huge volume.
One car can add sound to your entire fleet for a fraction of the cost of upgrading each locomotive individually.

 
The unit can be equipped with a MRC, Digitrax, Soundtraxx Tsunami, ESU Loksound, or QSI Quantum sound decoder. The decoder will programmed to the sound file of your choice where applicable. The unit features 8-wheel pick up by using my exclusive contact design and a 1000mF capacitor for minimum sound interruptions. The speaker measures 14x25mm and uses the car body for a baffle to create plenty of sound. This beauty has all the bells AND a whistle (or horn) too.

 

Be sure to see the videos below to see just how cool these cars really are.  Oh, and just for reference, the video starts with the consist about twelve feet away.
