WiFi Model Railroad LocoFi locomotive decoder

Read this review from the March 2019 issue of Model Railroader
LocoFi board and pre-wired speaker
For those who don’t wish to convert a layout to Digital Command Control (DCC), LocoFi by WiFi Model Railroad provides an intriguing option for independent locomotive control as well as on-board sound. Unlike DCC, LocoFi doesn’t require additional layout components such as command stations, boosters, or conventional throttles. It also doesn’t require a computer. Instead, each locomotive is equipped with a LocoFi decoder that transmits a unique WiFi signal. Operators then use a virtual throttle on their smartphones or tablets to run trains.
