Re: who provides the best DCC steam sounds?

I have a number of sound locos both steam and diesel, I use YouChoos and find Johns sounds suit me.
There are a number of sound suppliers out there, its down to the individual regarding choice,
I have no connection to Youchoos other than being a satisfied customer.

Re: BARGAINS!

I've just bought one of the Heljan Class 128 parcel DMUs from Hattons, a well made smooth running bit of kit.
