Heljan OO LNER O2 Tango

Example 1 - Heljan OO LNER O2 Tango with Zimo sound and stay-alive

Kit: MX644D; IceCube18X13X09-1W; SACC16 + SuperCap17000uF

Here's our donor model, and the kit we plan to put in - quite a lump, very weighty - always a good sign... let's hope Heljan have produced a good one here...

Example 1

Example 1

Tender top off, reveals 21pin socket and deep round well for speaker. Blanking plate off, decoder in, IceCube speaker down in the well (secured with BlackTack) - we prefer these speakers over any round speaker!

Example 1 Example 1

We wire the speaker direct to the decoder, to avoid the horrid little 2pin connector that Heljan insists on using. We also add in a SACC16 kit in order to join in the big 17000uF SuperCap for stay-alive, which fits nicely above the speaker.

Example 1

All back together, and runs a treat...

Example 2 - Simple, without stay-alive

Kit: MX644 or MS440 with IceCube18X13X08 speaker

Same sort of thing, noting that the speaker wires have been connected directly to the decoder rather than trying to source a 2pin mini plug that Heljan intend you to use... otherwise very simple.
