At £50?

If you thought this was a joke, the reference is here:

I think it would be more entertaining if it did actually dispense water into a live steam loco. Laughable as a DCC dispenser of invisible water for £50.

Thanks for that link, I think it will be the static version I will be buying after hearing them clips.

Maybe worth investigating making your own with a cheap MP3 format audio unit and a sugarcube stuck inside a Dapol water tower plastic kit

I would pay £3.68 and add your own sound effects for nothing. (Railmaster will let you do this).

Not sure why anybody would want a sound water tower. Donít you think things are getting a bit ridiculous?

What next, sound from a water tower, clucking chickens from a wagon, I dread to think what money spinner they will come up with next.

Mind you most people said that when they started putting sound in locos and look were that has gotten us

Could mean the end of exhibitions. Imagine if every layout had constant sound

I can understand the moving arm, but did find the sound a bit OTT in the videos. However, if someone wants that on their layout, then that's up to them. It is after all their layout.
