Farish Class 47 - Next18 Version

Farish Class 47 (Next18 version)

Kit: MS581 'G'

Graham Farish have rereleased their Class 47 with revised PCB, sporting a Next18 DCC socket instead of 6pin, and an on-board speaker. This makes DCC Sound installation a doddle!

Example 1 Example 1

This shows a standard MX618 motor decoder installed, which we'll and replace with the sound decoder.

Example 1 Example 1

Our MS581 'G' simply plugs in. The decoder has wires pre-attached for a pair of mini GoldCaps for stay-alive (GoldCaps included with the 'G' version of the MS581).

Example 1

The GoldCaps are connected in series, wrapped in Kapton, and a convenient space found behind the cab - all fits neatly with no modifications required, and gives excellent performance.
