Bachmann OO Class 40 8pin version

Bachmann OO Class 40 diesel - older 8pin version

Kit: MX645R; Rail Exclusives 26X20X08-1W Baby Boomer

The 8pin version of Bachmann's Class 40 is a relatively basic design internally. There isn't much spare available for a decent speaker, so we decide to mill some of the chassis to make room for a Baby Boomer.

Just to compensate for some of the removed weight, liquid lead was put into the fuel tank.

Example 1

The speaker fits across ways, under the fan, so easy escape for the sound, but the chassis cutting had to be sufficiently deep to leave the fan assembly intact.
