That has to be one of the best sounding locos I have heard in n gauge  :thumbsup:

You have managed to get a depth to the sound making it much more realistic for the scale  :heart2:

Well done Paul  :NGaugersRule:

cheers John.

Great video, was there much work involved in fitting the decoder and speaker?
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

Great video, was there much work involved in fitting the decoder and speaker?

A little bit, had to reduce the heigh of the speaker housing to half size, remove the resistors and capacitors off the motor, remove the old 6pin pcb and housing, along with tender clips, tape it all down, and sit the pcb on the top of the motor. I cut out the coal load too and im gonna replace it with real coal, or i may try the tender shell off britannia and see if it fits with it i , if it does im honna get a new tender shell and put that on
