Has anyone added sound to Farish Class 33?
« on: May 29, 2019, 10:08:12 AM »
Hi,
I have a Farish Class 33 which has already been converted to DCC and I would like to add sound. I have heard that the Farish diesels are too small to allow for the sound conversion and the way to go is to use a Dapol Class 33 instead.

I would prefer to convert the Farish model if possible as there are more bodies available for the Farish version and seeing as I already own one, moving to Dapol would be a more expensive option.

Has anyone managed to add sound to the Farish model?

Hmmm
Another modeller seemingly throwing good money after bad.
Don't do it. In the long run you will want the better model.

Maybe, but Dapol don't do a postal red livery for a Class 33

That's because nobody bought the Farish one. It was a hideous privatisation / preservation livery. No good for a 60s/70s modeller.
The sales of the Farish odd liveries were always as chassis donors in my world, when we wanted better running chassis on our Poole Farish models.
Farish did a few odd liveries in 2004-05, like an LMS class 50, for instance.

That red model dates from 2004. We are now 15 years on and have a much better model. Have you thought of repainting and re-badging a dapol blue one?

I have thought about it.

Then decided that my limited skills are not sufficient to go anywhere near a 300 converted loco with a paint brush :worried:
