Now it's time to add sound to the Alco: I love the Alco 539T (and else) clung.

 

I've just bought a Loksound V5L sound decoder and its adapter from ESU.

That sounds absolutely wonderful.

 

I have the same sound file in a V4 L for my S2 that I am working on. 

The V5 wasn't around when I started on mine. :rolleyes:

 

I don't know the differences between a V4 and a V5. I think it don't matter. The quality of the speaker is more important.

Nice pic Jack.  What we can do if we don't have enough matching parts for a project ... mix the steps this time.  Oh, and the necessary height difference for head clearance above the steps.

Ooh, good spot, Sir!! :yes:

I think it’s needs must, the bogies aren’t the same distance from the ends, so there’s no clearance for a set of proper steps at the one end.

In which case I'd have thought it was the right hand side that would need the type of steps that are fitted at the left hand side? :dontknow:

It's a dodgy 'cut-n-shut' job by anyone's measure!! :D I note there looks to be extra metal bracing plates on the left side, maybe to add support for the truck pivot, which isn't directly under the bodyside bracing like the right hand truck is.
