Here's another question that could be classified as a "dumb noobie query." But if I'm asking, and I'm not a moron (at least I don't think I am) then I'm fairly sure others in my situation, which is somebody just getting into this end of the hobby, would be wondering as well. It has to do with sound and since I'm now looking at DCC locomotives, I figured this is the place to ask. Coming from the 3-Rail O-Gauge world, sound is a given. Even with the most basic, basic locomotive you will get at least some kind of whistle or horn that you will hear when you press a button. It's been that way since the 1950's or maybe even earlier. If you buy something just a little more modern you will get the growl of some sort of generic engine (prime mover) or a synchronized chuffing sound for a steamer as well as a bell and even "Crew Talk". With the very advanced models, (IE: Lionel Legacy/LionChief or MTH DCS) you get everything, but better meaning more prototypical. For N-scale, I'm realizing this is not the case. So from what I'm seeing perusing adds and such, with N-scale in order to get at least a basic whistle or horn you need a DCC system with a DCC decoder on board the locomotive. But not all DCC decoders have sound, is that correct? So if it says "DCC Fixed" which is what I'm seeing on some websites how do you know what kind of sound you're getting or if you're getting it at all? Coming from 3ROG this is all very confusing. I hope someone can enlighten me.
