Heljan OO LNER O2 Tango

Heljan OO LNER O2 Tango with Zimo sound and stay-alive

Kit: MX644D; IceCube18X13X09-1W; SACC16 + SuperCap17000uF

Here's our donor model, and the kit we plan to put in - quite a lump, very weighty - always a good sign... let's hope Heljan have produced a good one here...

Tender top off, reveals 21pin socket and deep round well for speaker. Blanking plate off, decoder in, IceCube speaker down in the well (secured with BlackTack) - we prefer these speakers over any round speaker!

We wire the speaker direct to the decoder, to avoid the horrid little 2pin connector that Heljan insists on using. We also add in a SACC16 kit in order to join in the big 17000uF SuperCap for stay-alive, which fits nicely above the speaker.

All back together, and runs a treat...
