Bio: 

Greg Wright has been modelling since 1975 in HO, HOn3 and 1:32 scale. His current railroad,
the Consolidated Republic Mining Railroad, is built in 1:32 scale in a 22' by 14' space,
smaller than many HO scale layouts. Greg's layout has been featured in Railroad Model Craftsman,
Finescale (Outdoor) Railroader and numerous times in the Narrow Gauge and Shortline Gazette.
Greg received MMR #520 in the fall of 2013.

How loud is a locomotive? Is your sound in scale?

Clinician: 

Join Greg Wright for a group discussion on how loud your locomotives should be as it travels
around your railroad. We are very careful to make sure we build our models to the scale
inch, but have you ever considered the scale of sound on your layout? What about forced
perspective with sound? You can do it with a scale rule and a little math. Join in for
an interesting discussion, you may find that you have your locomotives set too quiet.
