Sadly no.AFAIK,all the BTH motors got Double Helical gears but 407 at BTM
has 265D with DH gears as well as 249 at Loftus but the famous BTH howl,
a mumble at low speed, is still just just hearable,better than nothing
BTH spur geared W2s accelerating is one of the best traction sounds EVER
Gee I miss driving them and 433 at Camberwell was the best of the lot
IMHO the best transport sounds are,not in any order,the 38 loco,BTH motors
and Merlin engines
