What brand DCC controller?
 No. The chasis for the FT-A is wider then the other 2. The GP30 is a split frame and had a triangle shape at the end. The GP7/9 frame is atraight across at the end.    Joe

This is for a TCS hard wired decoder. It will work with any 8 wire decoder.                 Joe

On my Bachmann diesels, the wires are stranded. I noticed they broke easily from the trucks when I added sound decoders.   Joe
I say no. The I/O port is for the discontinued walk around companion. The 44212 is a DC controller. Don't mix DC and DCC.

You need to be more specific. Steam or diesel?Is 3500 a model number or road number?

Hey Bach Man, any idea when the sound value GE 44 tonner will be available?
Just got an e mail from Soundtraxx about the diesel decoders. Only shows on their web site.    Joe

This loco has a motor only decoder. No sound.     Joe

 Unsolder the 2 wires from the speaker on the decoder. Tape them up. No more sound.

On the different sound volumes, try a value of 60. If this is too low, add 10 and try again. Keep doing this until you have the level you like. I do the 6' test: stand about 6' away from loco, sound should be barely heard.    Joe

The sound value decoders do not have reverb or the equalizer. list of CVs default values:
Some call them a cut down version of the Tsunami. They are not. They are made by Soundtraxx to Bachmanns specs.
