Bachmann OO LNER V2

Bachmann LNER V2

Kit: MX645R; IceCube28X18X08-2W

We can simply plug in an MX645R using the 8pin DCC socket in the model, and there is space in a slot in the boiler for the decoder without having to make any modifications. However, with this approach there is no room left for a speaker, so we decided to route a pair of wires back to the tender for a decent chunky dual IceCube speaker.

Using BlackTack, the IceCube speaker is fixed to the roof of the tender, with some protection beneath to prevent the metal parts of the speaker from touching the metal weight down below.

DCC Concepts lamps and a firebox glow LED have also been added to this example.
