One of our Sydney customers in Sydney has installled two MylocoSound premium steam soundcards in a large scale Australian Garratt. The result is impressive. There is a short video at

Funny I did wonder if that would work on my LgB/Newquid Mallet conversion, looks like it would have. Any hints on how to do it or does one just run a second set of wires to the second unit?

The best solution, if your loco will allow, is to use the option to connect each soundcard to a chuff trigger on each motion. Then the phase of the chuffs will match what you visually see.

Sorry Peter I think that answers just part of my query. Think I can work out the chuff sensor bit to be separated, do I just duplicate all the other wires to each sound card?

No.
One card you would use for one set of cylinders, plus other sounds. - Whistle etc.
The second card you would just use for chuff from the second set of cylinders.

Obviously, you need power, motor, and speaker wires on both cards.

Thanks Phil that is sort of what I was asking, just duplicate those wires for the other card.
