Graham Farish N Gauge Voyager

Farish Voyager with DCC Sound

Kit: MX660; Minnow4

For the Farish Voyager's motor coach, we can replace the original PCB with a Zimo MX660 PCB sound decoder. Lighting can be wired directly to the MX660, as the outputs are low-level power designed for LEDs.

Example 1 Example 1

With a little encouragement, the Minnow4 speakaer fits at the rear of the coach.

Example 1 Example 1

We put new wires onto the lighting board so the connections are clearer, and the wires are long enough to reach the appropriate solder pads on the MX660.

Example 1 Example 1

Example 1

We use some BlackTack to hold the wiring in position, and the body then pops back on.

Example 1

At the other end, a simple MX617N 6pin decoder is used for the lighting. A function decoder (MX681N or MX671N) will work just as well, as we don't need the motor control.
