Graham Farish N Gauge GWR Castle Class with DCC Sound

Kit: Zimo MX658 (Next18) and YouChoos 15x11mm Sticky Gasket SugarCube speaker

Wonderful Farish design here with Next18 DCC interface, and provision for a speaker, so pretty easy DCC Sound installation...

Tender body clips off revealing the Next18 DCC socket. Here's our MX658N18 sonnd decoder too.

Remove the blanking plate from the model and note the enclosure frame inside the back of the tender, designed for the 15x11mm speaker. YouChoos have a version perfect for this with a peel-off sticky gasket.

Short lengths of wire are required to be solder to the speaker terminals, which you should do before sticking it into place in the model. YouChoos will solder the wires for you in preparation if you ask!

Stick it into place firmly and solder the other ends to the speaker pads provided on the underside of the model's PCB. You'll need to unscrew the PCB temporarily to gain access to them.

Screw the PCB back down and plug in the decoder. Ensure the wires are tucked in sensible places as you close the tender body back on.

All done!
