Hornby Dublo Flying Scotsman

Hornby Dublo Flying Scotsman

Kit: MS450R; YLR302815 speaker

Beautifully presented, this special edition Dublo Flying Scotsman is quite special. The loco has a cast metal body, plenty of detail, a neat electrical tender-to-loco connection, and provision for DCC in the tender.

Example 1

The tender has an 8pin DCC socket, and space for a simple 28mm round speaker. We can do much better with a little work though!

Example 1 Example 1

Unlike the metal bodied loco, the tender has a platic body, so easy to modify. We cut away under the coal load and create enough space for an amazing YLR302815 2W traditional box speaker! It only just goes in, but it does go in!

Example 1 Example 1

Example 1

An MS450R sound decoder along with the sample 1000uF capacitor sits behind. In this case we have removed the MS450's sleeve, unsoldered any unnecessary wires (lighting) and re-covered it in Kapton tape. This same a little space, and simplifies the amount of wiring.

Example 1

Example 1 Example 1

Tender back together, and coal load on (fixed with some BlackTack to stop it vibrating!).
