Model railroaders will stop at next to nothing when it comes to immersion and realism. I have always loved model railroading as a child and I was mildly interested when I came across the Hornby Digital Sound Toy Locomotives.
Using digital samples that pump through the train’s speakers, the sounds are taken from real life locomotive scenarios, such as passing through a tunnel or coal being shoveled into the train’s firebox. Hornby Toy Trains will definitely add that true life touch you’re looking for. What you’ll also be looking for is your checkbook, as these puppies cost $400 a pop.
