Amtrak F40's DCC in HO Scale
Author: miralomarail

Does anyone sell a F40 with proper sounds ?  I would like to have One F40  on the point with no HEP sounds and a trailing F40 with the HEP screaming in DCC ?
Thanks 
Tom

I know Rapido's F40 sound units have a function that will turn the HEP on/off. So you could have 1 on and the other operate with normal throttle notching sounds.

Rapido produced an excellent HO F40 with DCC. Beautiful model with beautiful sound and light effects. Mine pulls my Shenandoah in full scream HEP mode.

I second the Rapido choice.  They have the sounds pre-programmed to do just this exact effect, with the push of a few function buttons on your throttle.

Rapido makes the best F40PH.  One thing to be aware of is the version offered so far is the earliest and probably least common.  I'm hoping they eventually do the more common version.

Cheers, Jim
