Absolutely fantastic sound on that Ted, not a fan of 37s but they sound phenomenal, if only you had the clag and hellfire to go with it  :D

I am really tempted by sound but dont know how good the 66s sound.

I'd just be cold starting that and letting it tick over for 20mins hunting  for revs before thrashing it away  :D

Not a fan of 37s? What a heathen!!  :smiley-laughing:

I cocked up the priming as that runs through the start sound, but it was just a quick video. I actually purchased 11 different speakers of all shapes and sizes, you wouldn't expect such a difference - but there was. The Zimo 15x12x9mm Sugar Cube offered the best bass response, followed by the ESU.

The cool thing about iTrain is I can set locos like this to sit, prime, start, tickover and warm up for a number of minutes before they set off on duty. A bit nerdy, but just adds to the atmosphere.

Here's a video of a 66 I just found - sounds good to me! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BZWaQec2Qo

I can send you a video of a sound fitted 66 Craig ;)

The older locos (like 37s) have the advantage of a more distinctive sound. A lot of modern stuff is a bit underwhelming IMO. The YouChoos 66 sound project is good, but thereís more Ďceremonyí with a 37!

Iíve a recollection Ted has a sound fitted 08... a 66 is easy by comparison, particularly with a Zimo MX660 decoder.

I do indeed.

When I got in to the hobby I was told by many it would be too hard for a novice to attempt.

It's not in my nature to take no for an answer!

That said, the speaker is so small the sound isn't the best. It comes across better if you lower the volume. I'm using the YouChoos file - not sure of other options in N.

The only thing missing from that video was the thick cloud of black smoke that comes up when the motor is fired up. :beers:
With kind regards

Imagine the day that technology allows this!  :beers:

Well, we can dream.

Thinking about it, I wonder if I could rig a mini smoke machine to the sidings and shed area that was activated by DCC? Hmmm, now you've got me thinking.  :D

I think it is Caz of this parish who used an e-cigarette in a tunnel to give a puff of 'smoke' when a train exited. It was very effective. The problem with most scale smoke generators is they're a bit pathetic! You want some properly opaque black clag really!

If you'd like a DB Shenker chassis ready to go (top half), I might be willing to part with it. It was my first ever purchase and doesn't suit my layout, I'm re-bodying it with a BR blue.

But ask away here or PM me, happy either way!
