The first one is a new sound project for the French ‘Corpet-Louvet’ steam locomotive (e.g. LGB 20781), which can be used for both the XLS and XLS-M1 sound decoders. The second new sound project is for the HSB 99 7234 steam locomotive in a special “60 Years Brocken Locomotive” edition, which can be used with the XLS decoder.

Both sound projects are available in the Massoth Service Tool.
