Hornby OO SR Battle of Britain Class (2018 model) with DCC Sound

Kit: Zimo MX645 with Zimo Dumbo LS26X20X08-1W

Like so many models, this would have been simple to fit sound with a small speaker and small stay-alive, but we wanted more, so... out comes the DCC socket, ready to hard-wire our Zimo MX645 sound decoder, and careful planning of space is required for the excellent Zimo Dumbo LS26X20X08-1W speaker, as well as 2x 1000uF/25V electrolytic capacitors (joined in parallel)!

Of course we had to cut away some of the plastic underneath the coal load to get all this in...

All done and sitting pretty...
