Sound for GG1

Just ran across this from BLW.  Beside the BLAT sounding horn and electrical relays kicking in and out, what other sound could be used?  They didn't make that much noise and I've had them sneak up on me many a time.

If its from MRC it probably sounds like some generic diesel.

Here's another option.


It sounds like the same sound scheme used in the BLI HO GG1 (which would make sense, they're both LokSound).  I found that I had to turn down the blower fan sounds to get a more realistic balance, but you get horn, bells, steam generator, relays, electrical arcing from the pantographs, and other background noises.  Of course, the most interesting sounds to most people are probably going to be the horn and bell.

That horn sounds like an old electric shaver I used to own.

I thought the GG1's ran with the rear pantograph up.

I like that old movie... cool to think that the high tech locomotive was almost 20 years old in that picture.  It's like CSX using a GP-40 in its latest promo film.
