Hornby OO Thompson O1

Hornby OO Thompson O1

Kit: MS450R; SugarCube24X15X10 speaker; SuperCap17000uF for stay-alive

Standard Hornby layout for 8pin tender-fit DCC, the O1 is easy enough to fit basic kit into, but we want better, so plan a path for a decent dual SugarCube speaker and SuperCap for stay-alive...

MS450R or MX645R sound decoder fits on top of the metal weight, and tender body goes back on OK. Sound performance is reasonable, but lacks bass.

We therefore take a different approach, placing a SuperCap under the weight (well insulated of course), decoder as before, still plugged into the 8pin socket, but then we have to create a big space for a decent speaker...
