Title: True Blast Plus for Steamers
Post by: New ChooChoo on October 01, 2017, 11:18:54 AM
I see a lot of the True Blast Plus sound units for diesels. I go on You Tube and see some steam engines that have the one for steamers but I dont see any listed on Bachmann trains for sale. I dont see any for sale anywhere period. I left a message for the service dept here at Bachmann. Anyone know why the steamer ones are soooo hard get?? Any part numbers?

So this is the one that has the CHUFFING along with the bell and whistle? I saw a Williams steamer on You Tube with one that has the chuffing.

Not according to online store product information



 Click Here  (http://shop.bachmanntrains.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=491_515_1024) for list of locomotives factory equipped with “the True Blast Plus 16-bit polyphonic sound system with whistle, bell, chuff, and idle steam sounds.”

I do not see this True Blast Plus sound system listed as being available for separate purchase.

That's strange. You can purchase the ones for Diesels but not for steamers. Strange.
