If you would like to modify one of the sound products shown above, you can add up to 5 more sounds using our SoundsForaPound service.  Each added sound costs £1.  So for example, you might decide you'd like "A Rural Spring Morning" with a tractor ploughing, the local bus arriving and a plane flying overhead.  One Off the Shelf background plus three additional sounds at £1 each would come to £18 incl.


We have access to an extensive sound library and have so far have never been unable to meet a client request for any given sound.


To use this service, or have any other enquiry whatsoever, give us a yell here with the details of the background and additional sounds that you would like and we'll do our very best to help, even if that means going out and recording the sound or effect you require.

Combined MP3 Player and Speaker

A rechargeable and wireless player/speaker that we think is perfect for playing your BigTrainSound soundscapes and bespoke platform announcements.

Of the many MP3 players available, we have chosen this model because it offers multiple functions, great sound reproduction and isn't too bulky - all at a reasonable price.

It will play from USB sticks and drives, from memory cards or from a separate source by acting as a Bluetooth speaker.  With variable volume control it can be set to match your layout precisely - not too loud so as to be a distraction, nor too quiet that it cannot be heard.

Being both rechargeable and compact, it can be placed freestanding pretty much anywhere - beneath, beside, in front of or above your layout so that you can create the optimum effect.

And finally - it is the model we use to play and check all our final recordings before they are posted out to our clients. Consequently we are well able to testify to its reliability, ease of use and, from time to time, its sturdiness!
