Frank's Roundhouse Rolling Stock With Sound

The first four cars on this page were decorated by Frank's Roundhouse, and have either Right-Of-Way Industries or QS Industries (QSI) sounds installed. The rest of the cars were done by unknown decorators for QSI using Frank's body shells. Information regarding who decorated the QSI cars requested.

A sensor inside the QSI Live Action Sound cars causes the sounds to increase or decrease based on the train ride. The faster and jerkier the ride, the more frantic the sounds become. QSI also sold cars without sounds.
