Bachmann OO 3F Jinty DCC Sound

Example 1: Easy install using Zimo MX

Kit: MX644D; SugarCube9

Bachmann OO 3F Tender 0-6-0 tender engine... possibly one of the easiest to install DCC sound into, within the tender, using a Zimo MX644D 21pin decoder, SugarCube speaker and small stay-alive capacitor - plenty of space!

Example 1

Above photo supplied by David Brown.

Better speaker in this next one: dual IceCube28X18X10-2W, though the metal weights need to be removed to get this in. A dual SugarCube24X15X07 can be fitted while retaining the weights, which is a good compromise.

Example 1 Example 1

Example 2: Using Zimo MS, better speaker and huge stay-alive

Kit: MS440C; IceCube28X18X08; MGOLANG

Now with the MS sound decoder (MS440C), the 8mm dual IceCube sits behind, retaining the metal weights, and an MGOLANG GoldCap array slots under the decoder for stay-alive - superb combination!
