Hornby OO LNER J15 0-6-0 with DCC Sound

Example 1: Zimo MX648 hard-wired with SugarCube

Kit: MX648 hard-wired; Zimo SugarCube speaker

One approach to getting DCC Sound into this pretty Hornby model is to make space above the metal tender weight for a small cube speaker...

Example 2: Bigger speaker and stay-alive

Kit: MX648R hard-wired; IceCube25X18X08-1W speaker; SACC16 and SuperCap17000uF

Sorry, no photos of the tender interior on this one, but with some further modification to the plastic slope under the coal load, we managed to squeeze in an MX648 with IceCube25X18X08-1W speaker and massive stay-alive in the form of a SuperCap17000uF (connected to the MX648 via a SACC16 kit).
