I see on the big online auction/sale site that some vendors are taking the N scale 4-6-0 that comes with the "Whistle-Stop Special" train set and selling it separately as a DCC and sound equipped loco. Typically for around $170 and "no retail packaging". They must figure they can sell the parts of the set for more than the whole.  Does anyone have one of these and do you know if it is a true Soundtraxx Econami sound decoder or the earlier more stripped-down Sound Value Soundtraxx decoder?  There is not enough product information for me to tell, although I suspect it is not the Econami.   There is one reviewer video posted I've seen and the whistle sounds different from the ones on my 2-8-0 Econami equipped Consolidation.
