  1. Just posting this here in case it's useful for someone in the future - it's a set of comparisons of various different speaker types for the 141 including: * double iPhone * twin sugarcubes * slim sugarcube * bass enhanced * twin megabass * EM2 bass (knew it wouldn't fit but had to try it out ) * Direct comparison of double iPhone and combination sugarcube & megabass * The winner (IMHO): Combination of 1 x Sugarcube & 1 x Megabass Enjoy!
  2. Over the last few months, I've bought four class 141/181s and as I love having sound, I wanted to fit DCC sound chips and speakers to each. I hadn't fit speakers before to anything so this was a new challenge, even just getting the body shell off the loco was something I had to look up. I also found two good posts on this topic on this forum https://irishrailwaymodeller.com/topic/8434-dcc-sound-for-locos-in-2020/ and https://irishrailwaymodeller.com/topic/4568-dcc-sound-speaker-comparison/ to get me started and give some idea of what needed to be done. After testing a bunch of different speaker types (watch the tests here if you like) I eventually settled on a combination of a sugarcube with as deep an enclosure as I could fit into the loco and a megabass speaker which just about fit, with some modification of the chassis. I never found a start to finish video tutorial on how to do this, so decided to create one and add it on here - hopefully it helps someone else in the future
  3. After typing something on the A Class sound thread, I thought that maybe other people could benefit from the few simple things that I've learned about DCC, while preparing to make the transition from DC to DCC. It seems like such a minefield, sounds incredibly expensive, and when people write about it on here, they tend to assume that everybody knows what they mean when mumbling about CV's and other crazy stuff. From speaking with @murphaph, who is quite the DCC guru, and reading posts from @irishthump and @NIRCLASS80, there are cheap and simple options for making the progression from DC to DCC, such as using a LokProgrammer (€150 EURO or so) and some very basic LokPilot chips (about €24 EURO each). These chips only offer four functions, and don't offer sound, but do mean that your DC locos will become DCC locos without spending €100 plus per loco. This is the route that I intend taking, slowly, with a mix of some DC lines and some DCC lines, gradually moving to all DCC. I have a Bachmann DCC set which I'll steal the controller from. It only has ten functions, so I'll miss out on any other functions on the pre-programmed chips for now. I'll eventually upgrade to a better DCC controller, but it will facilitate the transition with minimal cost. Sorry for embedding URL's to Spanish retailers, but they were my bookmarked ones. The reference numbers will be the same for the LokProgrammer and LokPilot chips so you can find them on eBay or wherever. If anybody would like to add to this thread, in simple terms, aimed at begineers, please do so! You can see @murphaph's test loop by clicking here. The way he has set up RocRail to run his locos is breathtaking. You can see @irishthump's video on how he set up the new Murphy Models 121 Class decoder by clicking here.
  4. My 6th layout is designed to be a compact/shelfie exhibition standard layout to show off mainly Irish locomotives of a variety of liveries. It will be sufficiently versatile to allow diesels locomotives of CIE, Supertrain, IR, IE or even UK/BR liveries to be shown. The size will be my usual 4.5 feet by 9 inch dimensions with a 2 foot fiddle-yard at one end which easily and accurately attaches/detaches with snap toggles. It will be controlled by DCC with sound in most locos. It will fit neatly into the boot of my car for easy transportation to exhibitions. I intend to allow for shunting of oil wagons. I have already built the base-boards using techniques trialled by Wexford Model Railway Club for their innovative new O gauge layout.This involves accurately cut 6 mm X 100 mm high-quality birch ply-wood sections (available from www.woodworkers.ie). The appropriate lengths of ply are hot-glued to the base-board and 15 mm sections used for face pieces. Metal connecting dowels are hammered into these pieces to align the fiddle-yard. Lengths of fibre-glass webbing are glued in place with PVA at each interface of the ply-wood elements beneath the board. Sections of wood are also glued/screwed in place to support the back-scene and side-boards. A couple of pictures: the ba
  5. I have a separate thread regarding the development of the Diesel Depot layout (see: The layout is almost complete apart from some trees at the backscene. This new thread is to demonstrate the layout in its UK British Rail "blue" incarnation. A few photos of the layout with BR stock caught by some Spring sunshine this pm (including large logo Class 37 and a Class 08 on oil wagon shunting duties):
  6. I've started working my way through my sound enabled locos to create Youtube videos to both capture them for my own archival purposes and to folks a view to their capabilities. This one of a MM Class 071 contains some interesting station announcements: More to come .....
  7. I'm selling a boxed "As New" Hornby R3286TTS BR Class 40 Empress of Canada "D232" with TTS Sound which was an unwanted gift. It may not be Murphy Models but it's an excellent entry point to the world of model railway digital sound and it costs less than a Murphy Models sound decoder! First 100 euro secures plus 8 euro to cover registered post. Payment via Paypal.
