Welcome to this "Backshop Limited" Edition of the SBS4DCC newsletter.

This is a special edition to announce the release a cool new custom sound file available for the ESU LokSound V4.0 Sound Decoders.

... All Aboard!

SBS4DCC - DCCSound USA Present...

The Pioneer Zephyr Sound Project

SBS4DCC - DCCSound USA - ESU   Pioneer Zephyr LokSound v4.0 Sound File

SBS4DCC, in cooperation with DCCSound USA, present the first-ever production of an ultra-realistic sound file for the Pioneer Zephyr.

This is the most accurate file available for the early Zephyrs and utilizes the power and performance of the LokSound v4.0 and v4.0 Micro line of decoders.

Did we record a real Zephyr?  No.

Those are long gone my friends.  They have been relegated to Museum Duty so we improvised with the best information and recordings available today, 2015.

The file is the result of many hours of study of every source of media available for the prototype including movies, manuals and books.  

The file is made possible only through the expertise and experience of DCC Sound USA in creating custom LokSound sound files.

The results of this effort are extremely satisfying and a sound you are sure to enjoy.

"All Aboard the Silver Streak!"

About Third Party Sound Files

The file is built for use with the ESU LokSound v4.0 line of sound decoders.  Sorry, it cannot be used with the Select or any of the earlier LokSound versions.

This is a custom file created by a third-party producer using completely original recordings so it is pay-per-use file.  That means there is an additional fee required for the use of this file.  The fee is added to the order at the time of purchase.

Why is there a fee?  Because it cost the third party money to record and produce it.  

The file is only available from SBS4DCC or DCC Sound USA and cannot be downloaded from the ESU website.

DCC Sound and DCC Sound USA have been offering custom files for ESU Loksound decoders for years, primarily based on Australian prototypes.

Use this handy portable tool to keep your servos centered while you mount them under the layout.

The tool consists of a battery box connected to a small circuit board that continuously puts out a centering signal for the servo (1.5 ms pulse).

Keeping your servos properly centered while mounting is the key to making the servos work best.

The battery box has an on/off switch to save your batteries when not in use.

Everyone using servos for turnouts needs one of these.
