2-10-0 Russian Decapod (DCC WOWSound Equipped) featuring NEW! Chuffinity™️ Technology - Shipping November 2019
With the advent of the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917, the Baldwin Locomotive Works was forced to stop shipment of over 100 Decapod 2-10-2 engines originally bound for Czarist Russia. These "orphan" locomotives later found homes with American railroad companies and helped relieve a scarcity of motive power after WWI.
They are now part of a new revolution in model train sound realism, equipped with a TCS WOWSound® CD-Quality 16-bit 44,100Hz decoder with Audio Assist®. This decoder allows easy configuration without programming CVs as well as a Keep Alive® device for uninterrupted operation even over dirty track. It also features Chuffinity™️ technology for amazingly diverse and realistic chuffs and a WOWSound® steam locomotive sound package that includes bell, whistle, blow down, cylinder cocks, coupler close/release, brake release and application, grade crossing quill, depot sounds, and more.
2-6-2T Baldwin Class 10 Trench Steam Engine (DCC WOWSound Equipped) featuring NEW! Chuffinity™️ Technology - Shipping September 2019
Quickly-created narrow gauge railroads played a crucial role in bringing food, ammunition, and construction material to entrenched troops and carrying away injured soldiers from the Western Front in WWI. The Baldwin Class 10 Trench 2-6-2T was one of the locomotives that saw service with the U.S. Army in France. When the war ended, the victorious U.S. troops turned over all the railways and equipment to the French, who adapted them to agricultural use.
Bachmann's DCC WOWSound®-equipped model is the first-ever to feature Chuffinity™️ technology. Featuring a ten-fold increase in the number of chuff sounds over previous WOWSteam offerings, Chuffinity creates amazingly diverse and realistic sounds. Coupled with intelligent load and grade sensing, chuffs will vary in character, volume, and intensity in prototypical fashion. Chuffinity™️ is just a part of this Trench engine-specific WOWSound® steam locomotive sound package that also features depot background and battleground sounds. Bachmann's new DCC sound-equipped Trench engine will put you in the middle of all the action of the Great War!
