Default Hornby cl67 fitting TTS

Just added sound to a cl67, nice and simple to fit, speaker fits snugly in the fuel tank under loco, just need to unsolder the speaker wires, thread thru loco under the PCB then re-solder and fit. IMG_5044.JPG

Nice and easy. If only all of them were that straight forward.

Not over impressed by these decoders, you get sounds, the speaker supplied with them is very poor indeed. But for people on a budget they do work like 30s worth.

To be honest for the Diesel versions they do offer excellent value for money, given that they can be had for around 35 and the ones offered by Zimo and ESU cost 100 and up, OK the speaker is not much good but that only add 10 to the cost and to be honest the stock speaker supplied by ESU is not much better.

I have 4 of the diesel ones installed in N_Gauge locos and cannot fault them, except in one regard.

I have the Class 37, 47, 31 & 67 and the first 3 all sound the same so not sure if they are recording of the actual loco or just generic sounds. The 67 does sound like a 67 though so that one is fine, and the sounds between the Hornby 37 & Zimo 24 which I understand uses the same basic motor are quite distinctly different.

But for 30 ish I cant complain.

Sound in n gauge does not sound right to me, i run all three gauges, the larger the loco the better the sound gets, i have a fleet of BLs best sound ive heard.

A sugar cube speaker would have helped Brian.
