DCC Decoder with a Class J whistle?

Ouch! What a missed opportunity.
The Hooter whistle leaves a lot to be desired. It doesn't have that "haunting" sound we love.
None-the-less, thanks for keeping us well represented with Soundtraxx.
Are the Sountraxx decoders programmable? Could a better file be uploaded later?

It is available and I'm told that I have them on the way to me.
Another NWHS member and I were at Soundtraxx school last August and heard some
of them. I asked for N&W sound samples for Soundtraxx, after that on
both of the N&W lists and got no response, so I sent what I could get my
hands on, (weren't the best).

N&W Class J No. 611
N&W Class A No. 1218
Lunkenheimer 3-Chime
Southern Railway Single Chime
Railway 3-Chime
Tweetsie Whistle (ETW&NC No. 12)

Part No.
826121, $119.00 suggested retail.

I have not heard any of these,
and do not know if this decoder is yet available.

On another note,
since N&W did not operate the A and J class locos on the Shenandoah
Valley line, what whistle would be appropriate for the K-2 streamlined
locos? Is it the same as used in the Class J? I've got several
old Key brass locos to work on, and I might was well put sound in them

Thanks for any and all
