Kit: MS450PluX22, SugarCube24X15X08
Kernow's lovely steam RailMotor is finely detailed, and nicely designed with a PluX22 DCC socket in the roof, and a factory-fit
round speaker on board as standard.
We have fitted a Zimo MS450PluX22 sound decoder here, which is a piece of cake.
Directional lamps and interior lighting is controlled via the decoder.
We have used some BlackTack to install the 'sample' 1000uF capacitor that comes with the MS450 as stay-alive in the luggage
area. This helps to avoid sound break-up and light flicker. A bigger stay-alive such as a SuperCap17000uF would have been
Not shown here, but if you wanted to upgrade the speaker from the factory round one, we reckon a dual SugarCube 24x15x08 should
be feasible in the luggage area instead.
This one is a pre-production model, but should be pretty much the same in the final release.
