    Hello all,

    What is the difference between the sound car by AHM and the one that IHC made? How is the sound that they produce; is it a constant chuff that is controled by an on and off switch? Any comments will be appreciated.

    Thank you,

    I believe IHC bought the molds for that car, as well as many other things after AHM disappeared. The chuff sound is EXTREMELY loud, and not very realistic. :( Since it's about a third in cost of a sound decoder, I'd save my pennies for that. If you have, DCC, that is!
