RAM Track SOUND DEVICES

RAM Track manufacturers both analogue (51,52, 53, 54) and digital ('*) sound devices in order to provide accurate sounds and good dollar value. The analogue systems are supplied with scale appropriate, sized speakers. All of the acoustically recorded, digital systems are supplied with a 2" speaker which can be replaced by the modeler with a 1" speaker for on board HO use. On board sounds COB") are the sounds that should be heard from the model in motion. Trackside ("T") sounds give that final touch of realism as the train moves past various buildings and scenery on your layout. Call RAM at (847) 740-8726 if you have a special sound in mind.

RAM 51 STEAM ENGINE SOUND, HO.  Hear a demo!
This on board device provides chuff and hiss sound that is electronically triggered by the turn of the axle for proper cadence with the engine's drive wheels. Once adjusted it will not go out of cadence when cars are added or removed from the train, the way that competitors' voltage driven systems read. The 1 3/16" x 3/4" amplifier board contains a switch. Power comes from a 9 volt ALKALINE battery so that there is full sound from the first turn of the wheel. System comes with a 1" speaker and additional speakers can be added. The entire system is small enough to fit in some tenders or in a car directly behind the engine. Use a RAM 59 for rail power.
