There is a single speaker in the firebox and a Zimo decoder in the boiler.  Here it is on the Berkshire Area Group modular layout earlier today.

That looks just brilliant.
Shame I didn't get to the running day to see your loco in the flesh.
Great work!!

Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

Thanks To Alex  ( Hailstone )I was a guest at the club open day and the Garrett sounded and looked very good David ( Snowwolflair ) was testing it for slow running and it was taking over twelve minutes to complete a full circuit of the modular  layout there were some other  lovely trains running ,I didnt know what to expect so I only took a few of my bits to run but it still.was a very enjoyable day . Thankyou guys for inviting me.

Of course your a masterpiece Bob  :D

I'm still waiting for castings from Lychett Models so no progress on the second LMS Garrett, however, I have been looking at how to build the LNER U1. 

So I'm on the lookout for a couple of very cheap Farish 2-8-0 Austerity locos to cut up (hence cheap).  If anyone spots any good deals please let me know.  The valve gear will need reversed and shortened but its basically a similar mechanism to the Fairburn so easily modified.  Photos when I get one to play with.

Some castings have arrived, so I hope to get on with the second LMS Garrett.

In the interim I have started to cut up a Farish WD 2-8-0 to give me a mechanism for an LNER U1.   The wheel spacing is almost correct and close enough to look correct (2mm error).  This will be a slower build as I am feeling my way, however it is essentially the same as the Fairburn and will get a similar treatment.  the main requirement is to reverse the position of the motor and the valve gear which also needs shortened.  So time to get the mill out  :D




Essentially I need to cut a hole on the reverse side to mount the motors away from the loco body and you can see that I have done one side already.
