Can someone tell me if the 3 truck Shay with sound has a volume control?  If it does, can you tell me where it is located?
Thanks for your help.

CV 128 is your Master Volume

The list is found under Product Reference : DCC Sound : Sound Decoder CV Defaults (PDF)

I guess I was looking to see if there is a manual control(a knob or screw that you turn).  You know, the old fashion way!

Even with CV 128 "maxed out" don't expect a tremendous amount of volume; the Tsunami audio output level is only rated at 1 watt (vs. 2 watts for Phoenix Sound's older 2K2 board, or up to 6 watts  Cool for their P5).  I have one of the factory DCC-&-Sound equipped 3 truck Shays myself, & although it's volume is not what the Phoenix boards are capable of, I find the volume level acceptable.  (I live in a densely-populated neighborhood, so I try not to get too "over-enthusiastic" Wink with sound system volume levels.)  I have one of the Spectrum "Centennial" Moguls equipped with a Phoenix P5 board; if I crank the volume up, I can actually hear the exhaust echo  Shocked off the neighboring houses!  Cheesy  (Some of the times I've "cranked it up" has been at the request of the neighbors  Grin - the garden railroad's a "big hit" locally!).  Grin                                                                              Tom
