Bachmann 08 sound

Postby chris58 » Fri May 01, 2015 11:15 am

Hi all
I' have heard that you can,t get a sound chip into a Bachmann 08 without it filling the cab. Your thoughts on this would be appreciated .

Chris,

If you're prepared to do a bit of hacking around, it's possible.

Take a look at Jim Smith-Wright's article regarding this on his website:

I've done something similar with my Bachmann 08.

Hope that helps.

Best regards,

Evening Matt
I am now chairman of the club. Please take a look at St Neots mrc website. MY own layout SALTFLEET is appearing at scale forum this September. You can see a few photos in the members lounge.Thanks for the tip on the 08. Its a shame you have to hack it about because it is easier to re wheel than hornby,s version.
