I only run it on few occasions with analogue track power.
Grootspoor are on a canal in the Netherlands. I have dealt with them directly and will not be doing it again.
I once paid for items they could not supply and the money was never offered back, instead substitute items were selected without any communication with me. Strike one, history!
I am sure you will be impressed with the sound of the Garratt.
Just ask to make sure the locomotive is packed well at the buffer beams to avoid it shunting in the wooden box.
Shipping companies tend to drop heavier long boxes on their ends many times as it travels the globe.
Garratt, received my engine about two weeks ago. Finally had enough nerve to run it today ( looks brand new, just a shelf queen) but had a few questions first.Bart, it is DC. I haven't run it for a while but fairly certain everything you mentioned functions and I think you are correct regarding the extra sounds. I remember reading something like that. It will need a reasonable size power supply because of the 2 motors.
Andrew, thank you for your quick response. If I would have read the manual thoroughly It would have answered my question.Bart, my garratt is stored at the moment. I was hoping I could help without opening the wooden box so I checked the manual. The sound volume adjustment is on the tender. I believe this is the screw you are inquiring about.

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, would you mind if I share your pictures on the O Gauge forum?OK, I know it's not a live steamer, but still a nice electric model from LGB/Aster
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
