YouChoos Resouces
Hornby OO Ivatt 2MT 2-6-0

Example 1: Simple plug-in

Kit: MS480R; either YC28R 28mm round speaker or SugarCube8

An MS480R will simply plug into this model, and a 28mm round speaker will go under the metal weight with no modification. In this example though, the central beam across the metal weight is cut out and a SugarCube8 is fitted instead.

Example 2: Hard-wire, big stay-alive

Kit: MS450; YC28R 28mm round speaker; MGOLANG

This time we opt for the bigger MS450 decoder, which has to be hard-wired (remove the 8pin DCC socket). We want to add a MGOLANG GoldCap array for stay-alive, so a little more space is required. However, there is no modification of the plastic inside the tender still.

Unwanted wires (lighting) are removed from the MS450, and the decoder re-covered in Kapton tape for protection. A 2W 28mm YC28R round speaker fits neatly in the intended space under the metal weight.

Example 3: Big everything, massive speaker!

Kit: MS450; YLR603010; MGOLANG

This time we go all out, and gut the tender (removing the socket, the metal weight, and some of the plastic under the coal load. Our MS450 and MGOLANG are slotted up into the coal load space, and a huge YLR603010 3W speaker just fits perectly in the remaining space - tight, but it just goes in and sounds simply superb!
