Sound decoder for Kato Rhatische Bahn Ge4/4-II 631

Recommended Posts

Just a shot in the dark. Kato seems to do a sound card for the Glacier express but I have this locomotive which I would like to convert to DCC. I picked this up recently in a train shop in Munich. https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10495218

 

I don't suppose there is a decoder with sound for this one? Also the locomotive is pretty small. So not entirely sure if there is room for a speaker even.

ESU offers their LokSound V4.0 micro with sound for the Ge 4/4 II under the article number 56854 .
You could also buy a generic LokSound V4.0 micro and install the sound project yourself, it is offered for download on their website:

If I'm right you would need one of their LokProgrammers to do this yourself though.

 

Fitting the decoder and speaker would probably require milling of the frame, as the usual Kato Locomotives don't have enough space for this.

Thank you. I will check with Kiha66 if he would be willing to attempt this.
