Locos

Postby crazypotter » Thu Aug 02, 2018 5:48 pm

Hi All. Having just started my layout I am on the lookout for a couple of locos. The layout is based on a late 50's theme and is DCC. To begin with I would like a steam loco for passenger coaches and a diesel for freight, preferably both with a sound chip. Don't really mind the manufacturer as long as they are in reasonable condition and a realistic price. Thanks.

You can sometimes buy new Hornby TTS new cheaper than you can by second hand ( I have 3, all sub £100)
Keep your eye out for a bargain from Rails or Hattons
You can pre-order Tornado for £80!

Cheers. As someone who is more experienced than me are the TTS sound chips any good?. Obviously you can pay a lot more for some decoders, but it all comes down to budget.

Read this thread. They are limited, but unless you want complete control, automatic sounds, etc, etc, they do all the basics.
