LokSound 4.0 US Sounds

Here you can find the project files for our LokSound V4.0 decoder.  Please use the latest LokProgrammer Software V4 to download these files to the decoder. We will extend the list of available sounds frequently, so a regular visit to this page is recommended.

If you already know the ESU project ID (5-digit code), simply enter it in the search field.

As a General Reference:
ANY LokSound V4.0 Sound file can be written to ANY LokSound V4.0 decoder. This means you can write a Micro(N Scale) 748xx file to an 8 pin or 21MTC V4.0, and alternately a 744xx(HO Scale) file to a Micro or V4.0 Direct decoder. The ESU LokProgrammer software will recognize the difference and ask you to proceed. By Accepting you are giving the permission needed for the LokProgrammer to automatically make the conversion needed.

  •   *EMD 16-710GB-SD9043MAC*

    EMD 16-710GB
    The EMD 710 is a line of diesel engines built by Electro-Motive Diesel (previously General Motors' Electro-Motive Division). The 710 series largely replaced the earlier EMD 645 series. The EMD 710 is a large two-stroke diesel engine that has a 710 cubic inches (11.6 liters) displacement per cylinder.[1] Since its introduction, EMD has continually upgraded the 710G diesel engine. Power output has increased from 3,800 horsepower (2,800 kW) on 1984's 16-710G3A to 4,500 horsepower (3,400 kW) (as of 2012) on the 16-710G3C-T2, but most current examples are 4,300 horsepower (3,200 kW).

    Over the production span of certain locomotive models, upgraded engine models have been fitted when these became available. For example, an early 1994-built SD70MAC had a 16-710G3B, whereas a later 2003-built SD70MAC would have a 16-710G3C-T1. Most of these differences had to do with emissions and little changed concerning the sound of the Prime Mover.
    This sound file is a 16 Cyl version with Electric Start which would be correct for the following prototypes:
    GP60, GP60M, GP60B, SD60, SD60M, SD60I, SD60F, Australian National AN Class, SD70, SD70M, SD70MAC and SD70I, SD75M, SD75I, SD90/43MAC.

    (This WOULD not be correct for the SD70M-2 or SD70ACe Locomotives as they had air start. For those models our 73425 project would be more appropriate.)

    As with all Select decoders there are also 16 separate horns, 2 separate brake squeals, and 2 bells include on this one sound profile! All changeable using CV48

  •   *Alco 12cyl 251B*

    The Alco 251 prime mover was over all the most popular and abundant prime mover made by the company. While it proved to be quite successful sadly it outlived its original manufacturer, Alco who closed their doors in 1969. The 251 prime mover is actually still available to purchase today from Fairbanks Morse for use in Marine, Generator, and locomotive uses.

    The 1800 horsepower 12cyl version of the 251B could be found in the following locomotives:
    RS-11
    RSD-12
    RS-18
    RS-36
    FPA-4
    FPB-4
    RSC-14
    FD-6
    FD-7
    FD-9
    RSD-16
    DL-560
    44 Class
    930 Class

    The 2000 Horsepower 12cyl 251C version was extremely close to 251B in the way that is sounded. While we have full intentions to record this in the very near future the 251B is a very suitable substitute. The 12cyl 251C can be found in the following Locomotives:
    RS-32
    C420
    M420
    M420B
    M420R
    M420TR
    HR-412
    M424
    45 Class
    442 Class
    600 Class
    700 Class
    A-321

    The 12cyl 251 was also used in many rebuilt locomotives including:
    RS-3m
    C424m
    and others...

  •   *GE 12cyl FDL Early*

    First introduced in the late 50s, the GE FDL is one of the most popular locomotive prime movers ever produced. Aside from a very few HDL prime movers installed in the AC6000CWs, FDL prime movers were still being put in every new GE locomotive until 2003 when the first Evolution Series was implemented.

    Our GE 12cyl FDL Early Prime mover can be used in the following locomotives:
    U23B
    U20C
    U23C
    U26C

    Some Newer GE 12cyl FDL equipped locomotive had a SLIGHTLY different sound due to a larger Exhaust and other hardware. While we will be releasing that sound file shortly, (73438 GE 12cyl 7FDL Modern) this file will be a VERY close substitute until it is a released. Those Locomotives include:
    B23-7
    BQ23-7
    B30-7A
    C30-7A

  •   *Dual ALCO 6cyl 539T DL-109*

    The ALCO 6cyl 539T engine was developed in response to the perceived drawback that ALCO's line of diesel switchers had a restricted field of vision because of the high hood. Both Baldwin and EMD were offering diesel switchers with a lower engine hood that the trainmen could see over.

    The 539T was equipped with the Buchi turbocharger, being made under license by the Elliott Manufacturing Company of Jeannette, Pennsylvania.

    This file is for locomotives that use 2 - 539T Prime Movers such as the locomotives below.

  •   *Dual GE FDL 16 cyl U50*

    GE FDL 16cyl Early Dual Prime Movers

    The GE FDL-16 prime mover was first used in 1959 in the General Electric U25B locomotive. Over the years little changed in terms of sound until the "Dash-8" series of GE locomotives was introduced. Known for their throaty chug and shaft driven compressor (rather than the more modern “Whoop” electric compressor).

    Essentially 2 U25Bs built on a single frame, the U50 was designed to replace the turbines on UP. Using scrapped Turbine frames 2 FDL 16 Prime movers were put together creating a 5000 horsepower locomotive nicked named "Baby Hueys"

  •   *Dual EMD 16cyl645E3 DD40AX*

    EMD 16 cylinder 645E3 with Dual Prime Movers

    Locomotives:
    DD40AX

    If using one ESU decoder (as is the case with the Bachmann version of this locomotive), then this file will work AS IS.

    If using two ESU decoders (as is the case with the Athearn Genesis version of this locomotive), then you will have to turn the volume of PRIME MOVER #2 down to 0 in the 1st decoder AND turn the volume of PRIME MOVER #1 down to 0 in the 2nd decoder for the sound to synchronize properly.

    NOTE: One ESU decoder will run both Athearn Genesis motors if wired together. The following CV suggestions are only needed if using 2 decoders.

    Set the following CV's in the 1st and 2nd decoders to achive the desired result:
    1st decoder: CV31 = 16, CV32 = 1, CV267 = 0
    2nd decoder: CV31 = 16, CV32 = 1, CV259 = 0

    NOTE: The LokProgrammer will only write to 1 decoder at a time. Decoders will have to be programmed separately if using 2 decoders.

    New Features:
    - Air Raid Siren as Present on Some DD40AXs. Examples-#6918 and #6924
    - 2 stage shaft driven air compressor that runs faster when the prime mover runs faster
    - New horns
    - Proper working dynamic brakes. Prime mover spools down to idle and then rises as dynamic brake fan runs AND the engine brakes faster due to dynamic brake motor logic.
    - Throttle sensitive prime mover sound paths
    - spitter sounds: SLOW and FAST!
    - Spitter sounds upon shutdown for 1 minute then automatically turn off
    - We have added an additional prime mover that more closely mimics the prototype when engaging notch one.

  •   GG-1

    The Iconic GG-1 is known around the world as the American Electric Streamliner. Built by GE and the famous Pennsylvania Railroad Altoona Shops the GG-1s were constructed between 1934 to 1943. Operating in a multitude of paint schemes the GG-1s ran on PRR, Penn Central, Conrail, Amtrak, and NJT. Primarily they ran on the North East Corridor between New York City and Washington DC. They did occasionally see service on other electric lines around the north east United States.

    Though the GG-1 was relatively quiet compared to its diesel electric cousins our ESU version includes correct GG-1 A-200 Air horns, Proper GG-1 Bells, Sounds of the pantographs going up and down, transformer sounds, traction motor fans, traction motor gear whine, random compressor, new air release and brake squeal sounds, curve squeal, and track sounds.

  •   *FM 6cyl 38D*

    One of the last to enter the US locomotive market and one of the first to leave, Fairbanks Morse is a historical manufactur known throughout the wold for their renouned oppsing piston prime movers. Maybe best know for the FM Trainmaster locomotives, Fairbanks Morse is still in business today as a Producer of Marine engines used in ships and submarines.

    Not many examples remain and only a few of those are operational in the FM locomotive line. Many of the locomotives that are still running are mere six cylinder versions. FM produced 6cyl, 8cyl, 10cyl and 12cyl locomotives while producing for the railroad market.

    Some examples of FM locomotives are:
    Erie Builts, C-Liners(built by FM and Canadian subsidiary CLC), H-10-44, H-12-44, CLC H-12-46, H-15-44, H-16-44, H-20-44, H-16-66(Baby Trainmaster), H-24-66(Trainmaster).

    Please note:
    This file has a special Cold and Failed start that happen randomly. The Cold Start sequeance will happen the first time you turn this on. ONCE IN A WHILE during this cold start sequence the Prime Mover will fail to start and automatically retry. If the prime mover fails to start it is set up to start on the second try. Once started and then turned off a timer will begin. If the engine is started again before this timer expires it will then start with a warm start. If the timer has expired the engine will start the cycle over again with a cold start.

    F14 will disable the cold and failed start sequence giving only the warm start option.

  •   *EMD 12cyl 567*

    First made in the late 1930's the EMD 12cyl 567 Prime Movers were the power houses in many of EMD's Switchers. More often than not they were found sorting freight in much of North America's Classification yards. They could also be found in some of the early streamliner trainsets including the Aero Train, and at least one Burlington Zephyr. The EMD 12cyl 567 prime mover could and still can be found in North America in the NW-2, NW-3, NW-5, SW-7, SW-9, SW1200, SW1200RS, RS1325, GMD-1, NF110, NF210. As EMD Export Locos the 12cyl 567 can be found in: B12, G12, GL12, GA12, GA12C, GR12 and possibly others.

    The Default horn in this file is a brand New Leslie A-125 which is the horn many EMD Switchers were equipped with from the factory.

    Using the LokProgrammer any Horn can be loaded from the ESU Template Pack

  •   *GE 7FDL 16cyl Modern*

    In the Mid 1980s GE changed it's 16cyl FDL design to include a different exhaust silencer, a new electric compressor often known as the "Whoop compressor" and changed some of the electronics of their locomotives. These differences among a few others led to a distinct change in the sounds from the GE 16cyl FDL often found from the U25Bs on through the Dash-7 series of Locomotives. Somewhere along the lines GE also added a "7" to their FDL line of engines designating that these engines were based on the Cooper Bessemer design. ("FDL" vs "7FDL")

    The "Modern" GE 7FDL 16Cyl Prime mover can be found in the following Locos: Dash 8-39B, Dash 8 40-B, Dash 8-40BW, Dash 8-39C, Dash 8-40C, Dash 8-40CM, Dash 8-40CW, Dash 8-41CW, Dash 8-44CW, Dash 9-40C, Dash 9-40CW, Dash 9-44CW, C38EMi, C38AChe, AC4400CW. Some AC6000CWs were built with 7FDL-16cyls and were later converted to 7HDL-16cyl. Some were never converted. Please refer to the prototype for reference.

    Passenger Locos including: P40DC, and P42DC were built slightly different and contained HEP. For these engines please use Select Sound file (73482) or V4.0 Sound file (74482).

    This V4.0 sound file comes with a Nathan K5H Horn and E-Bell but can be replaced with any horn and bell you would like using the LokSound Programmer and the ESU Template Pack.

  •   *GE FDL 16cyl Early*

    The GE FDL-16 prime mover was first used in 1959 in the General Electric U25B locomotive. Over the years little changed in terms of sound until the "Dash-8" series of GE locomotives was introduced. Known for their throaty chug and shaft driven compressor (rather than the more modern “Whoop” electric compressor) , the following GE locomotives used the early 16cyl FDL prime mover:
    U25B, U28B, U30B, U33B, U36B, U25C, U28C, U28CG, U30C, U30CG, P30CH, U34CH, U33C, U36C, B30-7, B36-7, C30-7, and C36-7.
    Dash-8 locomotives and newer through the AC4400CWs use the Modern 16cyl 7FDL prime mover. For the Modern sound use ESU sound file 73440(Select) or 74440(V4.0)
    U50Bs used 2 Early GE 16cyl FDL prime movers. For this sound use ESU sound file 73421(Select) or 74421(V4.0).

    Soundfile contains an Old Cast P5 Airhorn and early GE Bell. Using the Template pack contained in the ESU LokProgrammer other horns and bells can be substituted.

  •   *UP Big Boy*

    During the late 1930s, the Union Pacific often used helpers to move trains from Ogden to Wasatch. The UP wanted to simplify this move so they asked their "Department of Research and Mechanical Standards" (DoRMS) to design a locomotive that could pull a 3600 ton train unassisted over the 1.14% grade of the Wasatch.
    The designers determined that to pull a 3600 ton train, a tractive effort of 135,000 lbs would be needed. Assuming a factor of adhesion of 4.0, the weight on drivers would have to be 4.0 * 135,000 = 540,000 lbs. Given an axle loading of 67,500 lbs each, this would require 8 drivers or an x-8-8-x wheel arrangement. The designers agreed upon the 4-8-8-4 design. Next, the horsepower and cylinder sizes were computed based on 300 psi boiler pressure. Although they weren't planning to pull these freight trains at 80 MPH, the DoRMS designed them for 80 MPH in order to have a sufficient factor of safety built into the design. What resulted is considered by many to be the most successful articulated steam locomotive ever built. 4000 was delivered to Omaha at 6PM, September 5, 1941.

    The 25 Big Boys were built in two groups. The first group, called "class 1", were built starting in 1941. They were numbered 4000-4019. The second group, "class 2", were built in 1944. They were numbered 4020-4024. The last revenue freight pulled by a Big Boy was in July of 1959. Most were retired in 1961. The last one was retired in July of 1962. As late as September, 1962, there were still four operational Big Boys at Green River, WY.

  •   *GE 8Cyl FDL U18B*

    The GE U18B was introduced by GE as a branch line roadswitcher in 1973. Easy to spot due to its relatively short length — 54 ft 8 in (16.66 m) — it was the only North American locomotive powered by the 8-cylinder FDL engine.

    There were some export locomotives built with this prime mover:
    SG10B, U15C, U17C, U20C, and the C18-7i

    The U18B was not well recieved as only 5 railroads bought the locomotive, with one railroad only purchasing 1 unit, for total of 163 units produced. The Seaboard Coast Line Railroad (SCL) bought 105 U18Bs, far more than the second-best U.S. customer, the Maine Central Railroad (MEC), which ordered 10. Most of the SCL and MEC U18Bs rode on refurbished Blomberg trucks, recycled from old EMD locomotives, making the U18B even more visually distinct from other GE locomotives.

    Not many U18Bs still exist, but some short-line railroads, such as the Pickens Railway, still have several U18Bs in everyday service. We are very grateful to the Pickens Railway for allowing ESU to record one of these rare locomotives.

  •   *Alco 539T*

    The Alco 539 engine was developed in response to the perceived drawback that Alco's line of diesel switchers had a restricted field of vision because of the high hood. Both Baldwin and EMC were offering diesel switchers with a lower engine hood that the trainmen could see over.

    The 539T was equipped with the Buchi turbocharger, being made under license by the Elliott Manufacturing Company of Jeannette, Pennsylvania. The first 539T engines were used in S-2 switchers and DL-105 passenger locomotives built in September 1940. Alco locomotives using this engine include the S-2, S-4, RS-1, RSC-1, RSD-1, DL-105, DL-107, DL-108, DL-109, and DL-110. MLW locomotives using this engine include the S-2, S-4, S-7, S-12, RS-1, and RSC-13.

  •   *Baldwin 606SC_606A*

    Baldwin 606SC and 606A Prime Movers were used in quite a few Baldwin prototypes.
    DS-4-4-1000, RS-12, S-12, DRS-6-4-1000, DRS-4-4-1000, DR-6-2-1000, DT-6-6-2000, RT-624, DR-6-4-2000, DR-6-2-1000.

    Though not quite correct the 606SC/606A Prime Mover sounds very similar to the 608SC/608A Prime movers This would be appropriate for:
    DRS-6-4-1500, DRS-4-4-1500, DRS-6-6-1500, AS-416, AS-16, AS-616, DR-6-4-1500, DR-4-4-1500 and the RF-16(Sharknose).
