This short article provides a demonstration of Howes DCC sound fitted to a Hornby West Country Bullied pacific:

Decoder and Speaker Fitting

The following pictures show how the decoder and speaker were fitted inside the loco:

There was originally, a screw-fitted weight located where the speaker is fitted. This weight has been removed to povide space for the speaker. Blue-tac has been used on the corners of the speaker baffle box to seal it for best possible sound results. The decoder is located on top of the drive gearbox.
