  • Sound Decoder for Bachmann Gas Mech

    Lately, i have been thinking about having a stab at sound with my dcc system (NCE).

    I though i start off simple, and use my bachmann gas mechanical loco.

    Has anyone put sound in this loco?

    Brodie,

    I installed sound in one of these a while back with a (large by todays standards) Sountraxx goose decoder. Used the smallest speaker behind the front grill with some additional tweaks. Should be an easy slam dunk today with a LokSound Micro. I have not seen the newer DCC equipped davenports, but I suppose a sound-bug could also be an option. When I install any DCC into Bachmann equipment, I always strip out all the caps and coils and pcbs and wire in directly. Easier, cleaner, decoders are happier, and usually provides more room.







    Since taking the photos, I did seal the back of the speaker enclosure...this was one of my first and I was at the bottom of the learning curve.

    Hope this helps,

    Cheers,

    Michael
