    I have modeled O gauge for over 12 years, and have now switched to N scale. I just purchased a new Atlas Dash 8-40B, and it had a tendency to "squeel". Although the paperwork said it did not require additional oil, I did place a minute amount in the bearings. This stopped the squeeling, but I noticed that the engine is louder in reverse than in forward. Am I hearing things or what? I need some help here. I am used to big O gauge steam locomotives with sound, and now I am dealing with a whole new animal. Thanx in advance,

    Some step to take, from O to N-scale :thumb:
    And I say welcome to the fabulous world of N-scale and hope you find that sound source.
    As you say, these locos are a different kind of animals and any sound from those small locos always make me confused sign1
