Hornby OO 9F 21pin version

Hornby 2022 9F with 21pin tender socket

Kit: MS440C; SugarCube24X15X09

Hornby's retooling of their 9F model provides a convenient 21pin socket in the tender and a speaker enclosure designed for a 15x11mm StickyGasket speaker. However, the enclosure removes easily so we can put in a much better dual SugarCube24X15X09 speaker in its' place paired with a Zimo MS440C sound decoder. This is a nice update to the 9F - good detailing, and a much more solid-feel than previous Hornby 9Fs.

Example 1 Example 1

The speaker enclosure simply peels off a double-sided pad so we can plunk our dual SugarCube in exactly the same place. Speaker wires will solder to the pads marked S1 and S2.

Example 1 Example 1

With the 21pin blanking plate removed, and the speaker box taken out, we can put our own kit in now... MS440C/D with dual SugarCube24X15X09 speaker. We use the 'sample' 1000uF capacitor that comes with the MS440 as stay-alive.

Example 1

A piece of Kapton tape over the PCB to make sure we cannot get a short circuit once the decoder is plugged in.

Example 1

Decoder plugged in, and capacitor BlackTack'd above, ensuring that there is insulation to the capacitor.

The model comes with a firebox light, which is nice, although it is on permanently with DCC as it is not connected to the decoder.
