I don't have a Corpet but if there is no room in the body you could perhaps put a thin speaker under the cab roof?
Do/did LGB ever produce a sound version of this loco? If so you could locate the exploded parts diagram and see where they put it.

I managed an LGB Sound Box (LGB 65000) System without the Box under my Corpet. Those units have a Speaker integral so the following pics show the fitting and that it is barely visible with the Rolled Blanket atop the Open Cab, the enclosed Cab version would hide if even more effectively.

wires to the Speaker are best routed to the Front of the Cab through a small hole drilled at the base into the Water Tank Area.

Thanks for the pics, given me food for thought.

No LGB did not do a sound version, furthest they got was the Bright Red DCC Fitted Cambria.

Not renuned for my spooling skolls! Had I have been bothered to look at a Cat to quote the ref number I may have bothered checked the spelling. But thanks for putting me right, always best to have things correct on line.

I wasn't having a go, just moving the loco to it's national origin despite the fact that it remained in Wales for so long ;);) Not sure, is it still at Towyn?

From a friend of mine, he acquired his second hand and the speaker is fitted here.
