Frank's Roundhouse QSI Rolling Stock

In the 1990's, QSI installed their custom Live Action animal sound units into Frank's Roundhouse produced rolling stock. A sensor inside the car increases or decreases the animal sounds based on the train ride. The faster and jerkier the ride, the more frantic the animal sounds become. QSI also sold cars without sounds.
