Hold the engine real tight and turn the power pack on full. Now ask me how to turn the whistle sound on. :)

On my LokSound equipped locos, the brake squeal will activate automatically if the loco is set to at least speed step 8 and I drop it to zero pretty quickly without mementum. I think there's a way to adjust this too, but I can't recall right now.

Check out the manual that came with the loco - you can also download manuals off of Loksounds website & post questions to them on their site - they'll answer.   Loksound decoders are a little more of a challenge to program than let's say Soundtraxx decoders are.   RailwayBaron & Hookdragkick were a big help to you...

On mine its automatic and operates when you quickly return the throttle to speed step 0. My loco has momentum and it works fine.
