£20 cheaper than even the recent Dapol clearance deal on these locos.

Unbeatable price for a proper super detailed high quality model of one of the greatest diesel classes ever. Sturdy too so if you don’t fit the small accessories then even a kid can use it. Compatible with Hornby, etc.

One of them is still mainline certified, even worked a service train once......!
At the risk of sounding really stupid .... Do all trains have 2 fronts joined in the middle?
Do these have the sound effects with them?

They are called bogies and most trains, or rather a carriage, wagon or locomotive, have them. Without them they would not be able to transverse curves or bends in the track...
I left my train set in the attic of my old house, however the new owners did mention I could collect it when I am ready - that was nearly 30 years ago now...
I think I've come all over nerdy... lol!

I get the bogie bit, (...supresses childish sniggers), but wondered about what looks like 2 cabins/driving compartments on both its front & back - I imagine joined by a corridor through the engine bay
Basically it is to avoid having to turn the train around when it gets to the end of the line, you just shut the cab down and go to the other end.

Not necessarily, some may run on a loop or use a turntable or be driven in reverse. There is no physical need for two cabs.
With third-rail DC traction there is a large risk of gapping (shoegear losing contact with the power supply rail) and the train being stranded, it’s probably bare minimum to run two cab length to help avoid it.

Did you mean "You've come over all nerdy?"

Or

Did you mean what you actually typed?
Driving units have 2 cabs so can be driven from either end, coupled to other units from either end and if driving controls ever faulty at one end youre not stranded can drive from other end.

You can fit a DCC sound chip.
