DMU sound capsule

Sounds are not simulated effects but real sounds recorded by us on the Mid-Norfolk and North-Norfolk Railways from several different sets of Class 101 DMU’s, though these would sound good in most vintage DMU’s.

  • Startup - hear the classic engine start up, then a steady tickover while resting until the train moves again
  • Further movement triggers the distinctive guard ‘buzz-buzz’, then if there is still motion sometimes a quick horn, followed by...
  • The classic rasp of the engine starts speeding up with gradual gear changes & coasting as journey continues

A quick High-Low horn sounds if train travels continuously for a minute, then less often if the train continues

After the SFX detects that motion has stopped, the DMU capsule returns to the sound of a gentle tickover. When no motion for around a minute SFX automatically goes to sleep & waits for movement to wake it up.
