The real thing had a sound to behold, the Class 33 they found removing the silencer increase the BHP and there fore the load it could pull, so on the Dartford loop from a the A2 bridge to Sidcup a steady climb, at Albany Park a nice deep cutting 1000 ton train would be around 20mph the noise at 03:00 in the morning will never be forgotten.....

All my sound decoders are Zimo and they coast very realistically. I particularly like to back them off to a coast and then push them up to hear the higher loaded 'chuffs'. I also like to set the accelleration and decelleration to pretty low to enjoy the sounds.
