Just come across these two clips, they look really impressive, the first is PC driven, the smoke/steam is based on the theatrical stuff, so no burning oil as was when the units first came out!

I must admit that I know very little about what is fitted and how it works, I know it's via a decoder and having watched a few video's, it seems to me that the 0 gauge are better, correct me if I'm wrong but they seem to have a lot more room to fit the larger smoke and steam units, they also chuff smoke in sync with the sound where the 00 ones just seem to release it continuously.
I'm getting to a stage now where I have been modelling scenery for a very long time and not running any trains, however, I have changed over to DCC a few years ago, fitted sound decodes it a few loco's and built that 43xx brass etched loco that I posted here a couple of years ago, Model Rail are coming to do a follow up for the magazine at the end of the month, the station is nearly finished...well one platform anyway, so...after that, I will probably get the track maintained and get something moving, I am also toying with the idea of after about thirty years of Pen Y Bryn, scrapping it!...and changing over to 0 gauge and building something special and of course adding those steam and smoke loco's.

My layout is 18' X 10', ok, if I changed to 0 gauge, I wouldn't be able to model anywhere near enough scenes as Pen Y Bryn because of space and the corner turns would need to be of a larger radius. The other thing is, I have lot's of scene cameo's that took a long time to build, what do I do with it as I feel binning it so not the way to go, also the running stock with kit and commercially bought loco's?

I would be very interested in members suggestions and ideas.

Another thing is, if I changed to 0, I would want the closest to scale track, I also don't know a lot about what 0 gauge loco's are available?

This looks outstanding. I'd love to know how it's done. If it can replicate prototypical ALCO diesel clag, I'd fit it in all my locos! :D
