i am thinking of getting a 3 truck shay with the dcc- sound. i use a bridgewerks td 25 with aristo train engineer. can i still get sound? i dont care about dcc yet. if all i have to do is take off the train engineer and just run the pack thats great.

The 3 truck shay had an optional sound system. It is an oem version of the SoundTraxx Tsunami.

It works on DC and DCC. So if you give it "normal" track power, it will run fine, although using any PWM power (Pulse Width Modulated) might fool the decoder into thinking it is getting DCC.

Aristo has the ability to put out PWM power in several of it's TE products.

Since you did not specify which of the approximately 7 different Aristo TE products you have, I would say just don't feed PWC power (PWC is Aristo's moniker for PWM).

Regards, Greg
