An interesting concept?

Received an email today:


Hoping this will be of interest to your members.

Over the last year or so I’ve been developing a soundscape system for my model railway. Basically it’s a set of web pages that pipe controlled sounds into your layout via bluetooth speakers set in parts of the scenery, sounds include animals, birds, vehicles and possibly of most interest a working station tannoy.

The system is now to a standard where it shows what is possible given time.

The soundscape can be found at :-

I would be very grateful if you could take a quick look, any feedback would be most welcome whether good or bad!

It’s free to use but of course a small donation would be most welcome to help with the cost of the Tannoy voices and more sounds.

This appears an interesting approach to sound – concentrating on the ambient surroundings rather than the trains themselves.  It could be of real interest for small layouts, where a few speakers could give real atmosphere – unless off course it just gets annoying!
