Good looking models. Is it just me or are the engine sounds on these wrong? Really sounds like a big EMD prime mover rather than a railcar especially the start-up and shutdown.

Cheers
Dave

Hi Dave/group,

 I can assure you the sound in Max's Reddens are genuine Redhen including the horn.

 Recorded by Max on a preserved / rebuilt Redhen owned and operated by railway historical society Steam Ranger which operate between Goolwa on river Murray and sea side town Victor Harbour, aprox 60 mile south of Adelaide, on most week ends and public holidays.

After recording the sounds Max converted them into a sound project for Loksound decoder via the sound editing program Goldwave.

The motors in  Redhens were either 2 stroke GM or Rollsroyce diesels that powered hydraulic toque converters.

 More info on the redhen rail cars here.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redhen_railcar

 Two hours ago Max called in with his Redhen and allowed me to op it on my test track.

 It sounds absolutely great,  brought back memories of riding on them in their hey day.

 Well done that man.

 Cheers

  Ian

keeping bloody chickens

I can see where the confusion might have arisen :chicken

With "red hens", "tin hares", "dukedogs" "terriers" and who knows what else it's very easy to become confused at times. For those who are interested in such things we also have a chicken thread here
