61  Discussion Boards / Williams by Bachmann / Prime Mover Sound Question on: March 03, 2014, 09:41:31 PM
This is a question for maybe Yardmaster or 3rail in fact anyone who might have the answer.

I took my new RS3 to our club meeting last week and everyone really like it but a few people had a couple of question so I thought I would put them out here to see if there might be answer.

1. With the prime mover sound can it be made to be turned off but keep the bell and horn to work.

2. Can you take out the True Blast II plus board with prime mover sound and replace it with the true blast II only board?

My answer to question number 1 was NO.
I could not answer number 2.

Thanks in advance for any input on this two questions. Once again thanks WBB for all the great products you are producing. I really like my RS3 and GP30 as I do of all my WBB engines and cars. Smiley

The NS F 3's do not come with any lights at the bottom front just the main head light. I replaced the headlight with a LED setup from Evans design and then drilled out the places at the bottom and put plastic lens in then mount two LEDs in them but it is not wig wag just on all the time. Evans dose sell a wig wag  I think.

Yes wig wag is the same as flashing ditch lights.

Well this is what I was told by my LHS so this is all I know which might not be as I was told. There will be 4 different prime mover engine sounds but he did not tell what each was going to be and the List price was 99.00 but I would guess you will be able to get it between 50 to 60 dollars and should just plug into the reversing board. Maybe Yardmaster will post and get us up to date on what is coming out but WBB might wait until YORK in April to announce the new things coming out. Maybe someone else on the forum might know and share with us.

You will really like that RS3 Seaboard. I have not taken mine off the layout since I got it. What a great engine. By the way Run number 270 of the OGR magazine has a nice write on this engine starting on page 19 thru 24 I believe.

Yardmaster
Thanks for posting on this thread and clearing up any issues about the sound. I personally love the new prime mover sounds. My GP30 and now the RS3. I am looking forward to getting more engines as they are released.

The GP30 and RS3 both are totally complete with the new sound system which includes horn and bell with primer mover sounds. All I was saying before was if someone wanted to upgrade there Engines they would be able to buy this sound system and add it to and older engine. Right now you can only get the true blast II sound system to add to an engine that has no horn or bell.

I did not pay any more my RS3 than the my GP30. So I feel like a got a good engine for a nice price. I personally cannot afford the other brands anymore. I think WBB has stepped up to the plate for reasonable price for what is included in the engine. At least I can afford it for now.  Smiley

I hope I have cleared up any confusion I my have caused.

Here is what the sound is like. I have have the engine in the neutral position so I can make the video and let you hear the prime mover and horn and bell.

The sound system that is now being used in the RS3 and GP30 will be a plug an play add on or replacement to the true blast II. So I plan on replacing my True Blast II with the 16 bit system. That is what I was saying. Sorry I should have explained better but was just excited about the my new RS3 engine. Grin

I just picked up my RS 3 Seaboard this afternoon and all I can say is WOW this engine is OUTSTANDING WBB has out done them self this time. The detail is great and the the sound is over the top. Take a look.









It even has a lock out switch under the bottom for direction. I also heard from local hobby shop that the new sound system will be out late summer. I placed my order today while I was there. Guy's this engine is wonderful.  Smiley
