Not the auxiliary dome Roger. Itís just behind the steam dome, sitting at a slope towards the firemanís side, very visible in the Erie photo.  Injectors I thought maintained boiler water level.   Iím talking about water fill of a cold boiler in the roundhouse, that what I thought that boiler top globe valve was for.  Maybe it was a Russian practice thing.  Iíve seen similar valve stems in auxiliary domes on SP engines.

There are tons of aftermarket superdetail parts people.  Try Cal Scale and Shapeways.

What radius curve is it going around?

Ive always wondered what that flat round thing on the boiler behind the steam dome was.  Itís on the Bachmann model with a little longer valve steam.  The boiler water fill point maybe?

The trouble with that is that itís not automatic like cv 113.  You could use f8 too.  He wants the layout to stay quiet at start up  , like I do.

Thanks for the MP pictures.  Iíd seen the first two, the others were new to me.

If you are up for it, do a complete cv 8 reset to factory default and then try cv 113. You may have some setting turned on that keeps it from functioning .

You can contact Soundtraxx directly if you want too, they are quite responsive.  That cv ought to work.


I agree, only the active engine at the moment needs to be audible.

Thatís the original Tsunami right?  Cv 113 for some reason, on them and the original Bachmann Soundtraxx decoder (shoulda kept those , Mr. B), is graded in tenths of a second. In other words,  a value of 20 in cv 113 is two seconds till time out.  I like a value of 40 or 50, letís you finish a switching move without it going silent too quickly.

The other thing is, if ďanyĒ F command is left open, it keeps the sound on.  If you do the coupler crash, the sound will stay on until you do it again.

Try setting cv 113 to 10 or so and make sure all commands are off, and report back what happens.

The Econami and Tsunami2 are much more sensible.  A value of 10 in cv 113 is an actual 10 seconds.

Thatís great.  Why donít you do that to a K4 and give the Pennsy fans apoplexy and coronaries!!!! 😱🤭😂😂😂🤪🤪

Sound Value has no cv 113, possibly the worst thing they could have left off in the quest for ďvalue ď.  Iím dumping three sound Value decoders in favor of something else now mostly for that reason.  If theyíd had cv 113 I might have kept them.  I have 5 or 6 engines on my layout at any time and Iíve become very accustomed to the silence when I power up.  Having to do F8 for anything is maddening.

I had to laugh when in another post someone thought they could sell a sound value decoder. With better ones available for not a whole lot more, I have trouble seeing it.  How about it?  Who would buy a used one? And what  would you pay?  I have three.  Maybe I can cash in😂😂.

You can probably get them from whoever made the couplers.🤔

Yes that is the best reason.
