Oxford Rail OO LNER J27

Example 1: Oxford Rail J27 with Zimo MX Sound

Kit: MX644D; 15x11mm Sticky Gasket speaker

Quite a straight-forward installation into Oxford's J27 model... 21pin sound decoder in the tender, and a 15x11mm StickyGasket speaker component direct onto the provided baffle in the model, underneath the metal weight. No soldering required - speaker just makes electrical contact when the assembly is screwed back down.

The MX644 comes with a 'sample' capacitor, which we'd like to keep in the installation, but there is no height availbale. So a cut is made up into the coal area to make space for it, and a new coal load rebuilt over the top.

Example 2: Oxford J27 with MS Sound

Kit: MS440C with 15x11mm StickyGasket speaker

A brief revisit of the Oxford J27, this time with MS440 sound decoder and making room for the sample 1000uF stay-alive capacitor.

We use some Kapton tape to ensure that no part of the speaker contacts with anything other than the desired contact pads.

Example 2 Example 2

Some minor modifications internally in the tender in order to create space for the capacitor.
