Bachmann OO GWR Pannier 64XX with Zimo MS Sound

Bachmann OO GWR 64XX Pannier with Zimo MS sound and big stay-alive - 6pin plugin

Kit: MS500N; IceCube18X13X06; STACO1 stay-alive kit

Bachmann 6pin 64XX Pannier Tank has a new option for converting to DCC Sound with the advent of the MS sound decoder range - we can retain the 6pin DCC socket for a much easier approach!

The platform in the boiler is fairly large already, so we need to figure out the positions for all our kit. The kit can be pre-wired before going near the model - here you see the MS500N with its' 6pins, and the little STACO circuit board joined to 3 mini GoldCaps (caps joined in series), and of course the IceCube speaker.

Example 1 Example 1

Speaker on first, flat on the platform, and top protected with Kapton.

The MS500N plugs in next, with the STACO PCB on top of it, separated with a slither of electrical tape. The GoldCaps are carefully arranged behind, insulating as appropriate.

Example 1 Example 1

Perfect fit! The STACO1 kit gives 5-10 seconds of backup time after initially charging (takes up to 5 seconds to charge fully). Excellent performance, very gratefully received by our Pannier!
