A discussion on another thread got me thinking (yes...I know that's dangerous). We are dealing in 1:160 scale models. If a person is standing 3 feet back from an N scale locomotive would that not translate to 480 feet or 160 yards scaled up to 1:1 ? If so...a 1:1 locomotives 'sound' at 160 yards away would be nowhere near as 'throaty' sounding as say standing a few feet from railroad tracks as a train goes by. I've watched videos of n scale trains that had sound in the locomotive and most all sounded pretty good from a viewing distance of about 3 feet (160 yards). So sound in n scale doesnt need to have 'deep' bass tones as we watch them. Your thoughts?
