This model features a digital electronic
sound system. The volume control is located
on the rear of the coal bunker (Fig. 2). Use
a small screw driver to adjust the volume.
All sound features described below also
can be controlled directly with the LGB
I have some Lehman 1 amp power packs for testing on a short track and also an Aristo 10 amp.
It runs on the 1 amp but would be very under powered if it had to do any work.
Andrew, thank you for your quick response. If I would have read the manual thoroughly It would have answered my question.
I am going to test run on rollers in the next couple of days; have a friend that want to see it in operation.
On a side note, I also picked up a LGB/Aster White Pass and Yukon (Cab# 73) Narrow Gauge Steam engine at a very decent price. That will help with the inflated price of the Garratt (lol).
I read about some of the problems associated with it being a weak puller (on this forum) but I'm not that concerned at this time.
Oh, and one nit pick of a complaint; the roof vents on the Garratt don't open; they should for the price!
