WOWSteam Version 4 introduces our New Calibrated Proto Chuff (Patent Pending) taking prototypical operation to a whole new level! Your locomotive will automatically chuff loudly when it is pulling a heavy load or going uphill and then coast downhill. Adjustable rod clank and snifter valve sounds add to the fun. Since no two model locomotives are the same, this Load Based chuff volume can easily be calibrated to your individual locomotive using our exclusive Audio Assist.
Like our WOWSound Diesel decoders, you can also manually adjust the chuff volume and intensity using
“Johnson Bar Up”[F11] or
“Johnson Bar Down”[F10] at any time
with the press of a button.
We have added many new sounds including Narrow Gauge locomotives and all are amongst the finest sounds we have done to date. You are going to thoroughly enjoy these new sounds!
