Sound added to n scale steamer
Harold Wallace (Largo, FL) 9/18/2019 7:29 PM
I purchased this particular decoder for its small size as I wanted to add sound to my no-sound decoder- equipped Bachmann n scale 4-6-0. The decoder fit inside the tender with a little modification. I placed a 9mmx16mm sugar cube speaker inside the cab of the engine after some minor modification. So far the decoder is working just fine. Although the volume is turned up to the max, it is adequate. Sure makes a much more enjoyable difference having sound, especially when done inexpensively. I recommend this decoder.
