  1. Heljan class 26 with Howes sound and a pair of 27mm bass enhanced speakers inside the body https://www.roads-and-rails.co.uk/collections/speakers/products/27mm-round-bass-enhanced-speaker-4-ohm Richard
  2. Its been a while since I've uploaded a video of a steam loco, I dont do too many but I had this large prairie here this week which turned out particularly well Richard
  3. Bachmann class 105 DMU with Wheeltappers sound and a 26x14x7 speaker https://www.roads-and-rails.co.uk/collections/diesel-dcc-sound-decoders Richard
  4. theres 2 copper coils, if you knock one of those off whilst fitting the decoder it wont work because it breaks the circuit, its happened to me before, its worth checking
  5. Hi, I can help you out, I sell them here https://www.roads-and-rails.co.uk/collections/diesel-dcc-sound-decoders Theres a few options for the sound, If you have any questions I'm happy to help Richard
  6. hi, the bigger enclosure will help the sound a bit yes, you need to be careful putting the speaker under the model, if the wires face down they can touch the track and blow the decoder, if they face upwards they can short out against the chassis so you will need to be careful to insulate the contacts. Richard
  7. Bachmann 37025 with coastal DCC sound and an EM1 speaker, one of my favourite locos from my own collection Richard
  8. Here's another video of a sound I havent tried before, the SWD class 31, I used a 26x14x7 speaker which meant I could leave the fan in https://www.roads-and-rails.co.uk/collections/4-ohm-speakers/products/26x14x7-bass-enhanced-dcc-sound-speaker-4-ohm Richard
  9. If you've struggled to get decent sound out of an ESU sugarcube speaker then take a look at this video, I show my method of how to build the enclosure Richard
  10. Hi, here's the list of functions, which include 2 playable horns and a manual brake feature Richard
  11. I've fitted a Soundtraxx Econami sound decoder to this class 31 which was the only sound on the Econami decoder which I still needed to try. I have used it with a 24x30 bass enhanced speaker where the fan would usually go. it sounds great for a budget decoder. it also has sound for the 20, 37, 47, 66, 67 and first gen DMU and you can select the loco sounds you want using CV's meaning you can swap it between locos if you sell them and theres no need for an expensive reblow. https://www.roads-and-rails.co.uk/collections/soundtraxx-sound-decoders Richard
  12. Yeah it will! I bought a Taurus a few weeks ago, it all started because someone ordered a sound decoder for one of those and it sounded so different to anything else I've heard it made me want one! Richard
  13. It seems to be quite an unknown feature. I’ve asked in a few places and a lot of people have said none of them have it, one person said it’s the ones with extra holes near the sanders at the bottom of the body, and a lot of people mentioned MCRE, some of those do for sure because there’s a video In the end I bought a DB one because I liked the livery, I’ve put the sound in with the last mile feature, if it’s wrong I can live with that, it’s pulling British OO wagons on a layout without wires anyway! Thanks everyone that replied, Richa
  14. I haven't run my Irish 141 model for a while so decided to get it back out for a video, it has Wheeltappers latest sound on with drive lock and manual brakes https://www.roads-and-rails.co.uk/collections/sound-decoders Richard
