18  Discussion Boards / Thomas & Friends / Changing Thomas dcc programming with dynamis? on: January 31, 2018, 08:56:46 PM
I was wondering how I would change the programming (like whos sound plays) on the sound modules that bachmann sells, with the dynamis system. Some people says you need a test track? Others say you need an add on or something? i'm so confused, does anyone know?

Would this speaker work as well? I could get this two pack and then have a second one in case the first one brakes, or for when i get a second train

okay thanks so much! the piko train I was looking at uses soundtraxx, which seems to comply with the NMRA
21  Discussion Boards / Large / Large scale DCC Dynamis question on: January 15, 2018, 12:18:17 PM
So I have been looking at the Dynamis DCC for my main DCC set up for a while now, but I only just thought of "what if I get another large-scale besides Bachmann that has DCC?" so basically to make a long story short, would the Dynamis system work with other large-scale, lets say a Piko DCC, train?

@thomasgleek

Bachmann will never make any engine with more than 8 wheels (not including tenders obviously). They would be prohibitively expensive both produce and purchase, and as you noted they would require wider-radius curves that fans and parents will not want to buy for their children just to make the engines run without buckling and derailing.

But then why would they bother programming three bigger engines sounds into their DCC soundboard? (Gordon Henry and Spencer)

so something like this?

okay, thanks both of you. I just had no idea when or where or how anyone was gonna send out any info.

or better yet over here, the problem is that i dont know what ampage the chip supplies, since bachmann gives you no information about the chip at all.

As to add to this, I would like to see in the large scale the following
starting with the more realistic options such as
-Edward
-Henrietta for toby
-and more other cars

and then the things that will most likely never happen, but im still hoping that one day they do and those would be the bigger engines
-Gordon
-And Henry

though i know everyone says they would need bigger turns.....so what, a lot of model trains call for bigger turns, just do it ^^"

I found the answer on where to find the right speakers, i went snooping into what kind of dcc bachmann uses for the thomas trains and found that it is soundtraxx, i then went to look more into the sound traxx site and found that they sell their own speakers for a super cheap price.

I was wondering if anyone would know what kind of speaker that I should get to go with the DCC upgrade kit that one can buy to upgrade a non DCC thomas train.

any more news on any new thomas large scale models, kinda hoping the trains they listed on the DCC chip will come in large scale soon.
