N Gauge Sound Conversion: Sound in N gauge is developing very fast, you will now find a large range of models in the shop which have sound pre fitted or we can fit it to your individual locomotives if you would like to get in touch, sound provides a wonderful enhancement to railway modelling, our basic advice for this at the moment is:
Dapol Tender Steamers For DCC Sound, Diesels becoming more accessible.
Farish Diesels for DCC Sound. Many tender Steamers now much more dcc sound friendly
Both Farish and Dapol DMU’s are excellent on sound.
