We respect copyright.  All sounds used to create our unique projects have been professionally recorded and edited by ourselves and are authentic.

We offer a full range of exciting Steam & Diesel sounds for British outline.  These are offered through a supported dealer network, however you have the choice to purchase direct. 

Trade enquiries are most welcome, please contact us for further details.

It is important to note that the sound you hear will vary depending on the type and positioning of the loud speaker (s) you choose. We will try and guide you where possible but the choice is ultimately yours. You may be told or read from ‘an expert’ that this or that speaker is the best or correct. That may be true but creating what YOU like is the important thing to remember.

This list will be updated whenever we have developed sufficient changes or new projects. If you have a need for a particular prototype which may not be listed, please ask, we can usually accommodate your wishes. All our sounds are being updated to the UDrive + format and all our new ones will, of course, be in that format. However this takes time but, It is the most accurate, responsive and fulfilling system available.

We would like to acknowledge both Barry Sumsion for his expert knowledge and ongoing help and support with our Steam projects and Andy Jack for his assistance with Diesels and making our projects more user friendly towards computer control with Traincontroller users.

Project Number

GWR Region

Great Western loco sounds are divided into four distinct groups. Many locos have the same basic sounds with perhaps subtle differences, so please see the note about loudspeakers above, that could be important.
 
Group 1  Locos (recorded in the main from Pannier Tanks):
Pannier Tanks in the following classes - 850, 1366, 16xx, 2021, 54xx, 57xx, 64/74xx, 94xx
Tank Locos - 14/58xx
Dean Goods 2301 class

The following GW locos could use either our Group 2 or  Group 3 loco system depending on your choice (loudspeaker choice could be the deciding factor):
28/38xx 2-8-0, ROD 2-8-0, 47xx 2-8-0, 43xx 2-6-0, 2251 0-6-0,
Large Prairies 31xx/3150/51xx/61xx/81xx,
56xx 0-6-2, 15xx Pannier, County 38xx
 
Other locos which come under the Great Western banner including absorbed engines can usually be accommodated from the most appropriate group above - please ask if not sure.
 
Southern Region
 
Southern loco sounds are listed here. The list is somewhat shorter than others but is growing and will be added to in the near future. Some sounds are generic, due usually to the inavailability of suitable prototypes to record. This may be that the prototype simply no longer exists or that the sole existing example is currently under restoration.

West Country, Merchant Navy, Battle of Britain

LMS loco sounds are listed now. We were fortunate to have had access to several prototype classes which we have recorded in recent years. It has also given us a good library of sounds from which we can create generic projects where necessary.
