For several years Hornby have been at the forefront of adding the dimension of sound to the world of model railways by having locomotives equipped with sound decoders.
Although extremely effective such an element of realism has understandably added cost to an already highly detailed model. With the cost concerns associated with such embellishments the Hornby engineers have developed a unique sound decoder that not only provides superior DCC control but also dedicated sounds associated with the locomotives that have been installed with this new sound decoder.
Classified as being fitted with TTS (Twin Track Sound) these new type sound locomotives reap the benefit of the Hornby development resulting in an amazingly low retail cost for a fully DCC Sound locomotive. Each locomotive will have no less than 16 Sound functions specific to the chosen model, including whistle/horn, start up, idling, wheel slip if appropriate plus a host of other relevant sounds.
