I have the Bachmann 260 and has  factory installed Sound Traxx.  I would like to know what sound decoder from Sound Traxx was installed.  What I'm after is to have the braking incorporated using CV 196. Is this possible
Thanks

A TSU750 could be installed if you are familiar with DCC wiring. Decoders come with instructions but for this loco, it would not be plug and play.

Good Morning All,

       As I understand it,  the decoder that Bachmann uses is a variation of the traditional Tsunami decoder.   It has fewer horn/whistle selections and there are other characteristics not there that are installed in the traditional Tsunami.   Hunt might chime in here as he as discussed this before.
       Now....I am not sure what you mean by braking,  but I have three Bachmann sound value added diesels.   Using my Digitrx system I can adjust the braking on my engines via CV 4.   I also can adust my momentum via CV 3 and my horn selection via CV 115.
