What sound did the Doodlebug make; consequently, what sound decoder would be appropriate. Cheers, PEANUTS, Merry Christmas from Brisbane, Au

If you have access to YouTube, you will find videos of Doodlebugs models with sound decoders installed.
The one that came through my home village in central Illinois was called the Puddle Jumper.  Wink

Here is a PRR on Youtube CxvOOfgDUW0

The horn, the bell and the dingy fences drown out the sound of the motor, but it will suggest a few other videos to watch.

Here is one in Australia rGqUMijRk5E

Your links don't work.
I don't think sound for a doodlebug is the best investment, basically it would only be for the bell as the doodlebug was similar to electric engines as while they ran there was no sound to speak of except for the horn or bell.

You can hear the gasolene engine on the Australian doodlebug.  Some of them had diesel engines.   The PRR doodlebug does seem to have more horn and bell noise than anything else, though.  Even when the dingy fences go off, you can not hear the engine too much.   RDCs make more engine noise.

With all due respect, I like sound [even for n-scale].  My love of trains and railroads started in the early 1940s; my family lived in a second story apartment above their general store. The store was immediately across the street from the B&O depot in my home village, thus that was my first mode for train travel.  I have a few of the Bachmann doodlebugs; two with dcc.  I have not had sound installed yet.  Wink
