Hi Folks

 

I want to buy 1/2 sound chips for my DCC ready loco's

 

I have a new release MM 201 and 181 that I want to convert, both have 21 pin slots

 

Any recommendations on which chips work best with these or give the least problems? The 201 as you know already has a speaker fitted

 

Cheers

You may contact model shop Belfast as they have 201/141/071

sound chips.All the chips are for 21 pin and all you have to do is

plug and play.The new 071 chip is superb with a north and south

version with station announcement.

I forgot to mention that the 141s will need a speaker fitted and

this can be a problem as there is very little room in the 141 hood

and will need some alterations to get the speaker to fit.

DCC supplies have bass enhanced speakers that will do the job.

If you need any help on this,ask George in Marks in Cork.

Thanks Enniscorthyman

 

Does the 071 chip work with the 201 or are they loco specific?

 

Do you know when Wexford Model Railway Club are having their annual show again?

 

Cheers

The 071 and 201 are loco specific,mainly because of the lights,

and there is a good difference between each loco as the recordings

are from real 201 and 071 locos.if you check out YouTube under-Irish

loco with sound,you can see my own and Gerry Byrnes Locos.

As far as I know the Wexford show will be on this Easter.

If you are ever in Wexford,you are welcome to give me a shout

if you want a demo of any of these locos with sound.

I have 3 of the 141/181 sound chips from the Model Shop Belfast and they are top notch.

They also sell a speaker which can be used without having to do any major surgery to the inside of the loco. You just need to

solder the two speaker wires to the contacts on the circuit board in the loco and plug in the chip.
