I am looking to purchase and fit an ESU Loksound L sound decoder purely for plug and play rather than re-wiriing (not my skillset) and just wondering if anyone out there has done the same and what type/size speaker would you suggest.


Also, although none were preserved what sound file would you recommend Coastal DCC, SWD etc?

To my knowledge 6106 is preserved at Didcot it was running  until it ran out of ticket and is now cosmetically restored only. The 6100 series of GWR Prairie Tanks was a group developed from the 5100 and 4100 series and had a higher boiler pressure.  If you want a recording that would be close if not identical you could use a recording from them as a number have been returned to working order.  The boiler pressure should not make much difference to the sound perhaps a larger bark  but  a 12.5% difference in boiler pressure would be like comparing a 6100 series after a climb with a 4100/5100 series on the flat would anybody know the difference?
