Anyone know anything about this new decoder.  Does it have FM diesel sounds or generic EMD sounds?

Good news, Bob... the C-liners are done, and in the box, but I haven't sent them yet!  If you send me a board, I'll fix you right up!

I really want to see how the sound is on these new decoders before I decide to get any.

I read somewhere else(maybe even the "A" board) the sound was "generic" really. Unless there is a way to custom download a sound-file to one, I can't imagine much else is possible. I'd be happy to be wrong.

I have two of these decoders.

They are for the second run of the Walther's C-Liners that were DCC ready; the box says Walther's not Life-like and the engines came with Accumates instead of Rapidos.

The sound is generic and there is no way to download a sound file into one, however these include 4 different prime movers sounds (MRC's first diesel board had one, and more recent ones have had 2 - SD45 & MP15).  Based on the MRC ad, the 4 prime movers in this one are the ALCO 244, SD60, SD70 & EMD 567B.

My opinion is that the sound is a bit weak; they might be okay for home use but aren't strong enough for trainshows.  I played with my pair this weekend at Bedford and could barely hear them.  I'll bring them to Timonium in October for those that are interested; I may play with them between now and then and see if I can improve the accoustics.
