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.

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

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.

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

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.
