And up the annoyingly unavoidably steep gradient on my little line

Very nice, the sound is very industrial, as for the steep gradient, didn't really notice it.

Not only looks good, it sounds good too. What sound unit are you using?

It’s the 30:1 12-24v one, running on 12v. Pretty cheap and seems reliable so far apart from some bolts coming loose while bedding in.

It’s a mls light diesel sound card with a 50mm speaker mounted in the rear section via an old aerosol lid sealed with silicone.

Got distracted by another project briefly but finally got round to wiring in the led for the lamp and making a lense, I think she’s finished for now!
