YouChoos Resouces
Hornby OO LNER B1 Thompson with DCC Sound

Kit: Zimo MX645 with Zimo Dumbo LS26X20X08-1W

We could have gone simple with this 8pin tender DCC ready model, but wanted more sound and a big stay-alive, so that's what we've done!

First the DCC socket is removed, and then we've enlarged the metal weight in the tender to be big enough for a SuperCap (6800uF) to snuggle down into the aperture. A decent Zimo Dumbo, the LS26X20X08-1W speaker is used, and the Zimo MX645 sound decoder is hard-wired.

To fit this kit in, we had to remove some of the plastic underneath the coal load.
