Bachmann Jubilee 45662 Kempenfelt

Postby barrowroad » Sun Mar 14, 2021 5:03 pm

Kempenfelt has been fitted with a Zimo 648R DCC Sound Decoder with a Sugar Cube SP15x11x9 speaker which I have fitted inside the smokebox.
The Bachmann Jubilee has a smoke box door which opens and by drilling and cutting the plastic at the rear of the smokebox the smokebox boiler is opened up to permit the 8 pin plug and zimo decoder to be inserted through the smokebox so that the speaker can sit on the front of the cast weight positioned along the bottom of the boiler.

Robin, excellent work, how many Jubilees have you converted to P4 now, and have you any more to do?
What made you choose that particular sound chip?
I notice you have dodged the bullet of when Kempenfelt aquired a dome less boiler in 1961 as the layout is based around 1958 so you can run the loco with standard boiler fittings.

I like the sound file for the Jubilee. It's loaded on a Zimo MC648R decoder - Rail Exclusive brand which I bought from Digitrains. I need to fit a stay alive as the sound stops if there is a very slight interruption to the power supply from the track. Kempenfelt has everything fitted inside the loco body so there's limited space.
Next up is another Zimo sound decoder for Saskatchewan. The decoder is in the tender on this one so a 21pin version [Zimo644D] and bigger speaker[SP26x20x8 baby Boomer] has been obtained.
David, so far I have converted 3 Jubilees for myself plus one Patriot. I have one more Patriot 'Lady Godiva' plus four more Jubilees in the cupboard.

Robin
