I dont have a 66. I was mentioning about the lovely sound of the real thing. I was mentioning it as if the sound class 66 should in theory sound amazing!
I do have a Bachmann sound class 37 and that's impressive. I'm slowly selling my 00 gauge though which are mostly B.R. blue models.

4 more Dapol HIA freightliner wagons ordered today,that will make the rake to 7 wagons,i think anymore than 7 will look silly,even on my size layout

When I bought the bogie wagons that I did I think I bought 14 of them as in real life the trains would take about 30 to 35 of them. I don't think any models will pull the same loads the prototype does. It is not easy though. Make the model wagons lighter mean they are more likely to come off the rails. Friction is increased the smaller one goes.
Mind you, on a small layout having a long train of wagons doesn't look right.... It's a balance. Maybe seven is good after all. :lol:
