This applies to most media universally and is going to make me sound like a cynic and conspiracy theorist but it is actually the way things work.

Careful if you take the cover off the bottom of the bogie, the thin plastic clip bits tend to become very brittle over the years and snap off really easily. You might be OK as it sounds like yours...

I think, as 4VEP suggested, a barrier of some kind (like the trakmat which is really just a big sheet of glossy paper) glued over it. If you want a glue to, in effect, encapsulate the fibres then I'm...

Not just the wheels, the fibres get right up inside and wrap themselves around axles and gears. I don't know what model of class 47 you have.

On old Hornby stuff with ringfields it is easier to...

What size shed are you looking at if you don't mind the question?

As for freight waiting for passenger trains, that happens a lot on the real network.

I was going to say take it all to a Toy fair or Swap meet. Unfortunately I can't readily find one in Glasgow, the closest I can find is Falkirk this Sunday. 70s/80s stuff won't be worth all that much...

Why not just use a custom soundboard on a laptop, tablet or smartphone and put a small wireless bluetoooth speaker on the layout?
