Re: What Is It

Could be a gatehouse to a coal yard or a weighbridge office. I have no idea what the part number would be.

Re: Sound for my steam loco

Most sound decoders have two or three whistles/horns built into the programme software and all you have to do is press the whistle button on your controller when you want it to whistle!
