Dapol Pannier sound installation
« on: January 11, 2019, 10:32:39 AM »
Is it possible to install a zimo sound decoder in a Dapol Pannier locomotive, if so does anyone have a tutorial or photos. I have the info from Caz for the CT SL76 but I'm looking for an alternative.

To be called pompous and arrogant - hell of a come down.
I tried so hard to be snobbish and haughty.

I really must update my Pannier sound install tutorial as all mine now have the Zimo MX648 installed with forward and reverse running lamps.

Recently got my somn-in-law to print up some speaker enclosures made to measure for the pannier but haven't got around to fitting one yet.

Another on the "roundtoit" list   :doh:
