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
Multi-Train System

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
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!

Thank you

Bart

The manual say only fill the smoke unit half full but there is no way of knowing what half full is.

I added 20 drops of fluid but no smoke. The manual say if the smoke unit is overfilled then the smoke unit will not work.

I turned the engine over and dumpled the fluid. I waited 24 hours and added 7 drops of fluid and the smoke unit functioned properly.

I have very little experience with the suethe smoke units since all of my O gauge engines smoke units are of the fan drived type and require about 20 drops to get started.

This is a model of a South African NGG13 Garratt which operates on the SchBB Switzerland 600mm gauge line.
I thought it may be good to compare it with the recently posted Accucraft live steam Garratt NGG16

Andrew, would you mind if I share your pictures on the O Gauge forum?

They have a "buy anything cool lately" post. I could not take better pictures!

Thank you
Bart

Bart, sure you can. I only wish I didn't leave my grubby finger marks on the paint job when I took the photos. :-)
They are hosted on photobucket, so you can link them from there if you don't want to copy and upload them.

One of you could have bought the real thing;-)!! SchBB sold it to VoR: Drakensberg arrives at VoR But Aster/LGB model is a beauty, only second to the real thing. All LGB/Asters are great models. Best wishes from Tokyo, Zubi
