VIDEO: Hornby 'Merchant
Navy' sound upgrade

Our latest exclusive sound installation guide for KeyModelWorld feature Digitrains sound file for the Bulleid air-smoothed 'Pacific' - and you can watch it for free this week only during Bulleid week. Join Mike Wild in the workshop to find out how to install sound in this model.

The Bulleid air-smoothed 'Pacifics' had a distinctive sound with their three-cylinder layout and a clear 'middle c' whistle sound.

In this sound installation guide we are showing a simple way to add digital sound to the Hornby 'OO' gauge air-smoothed 'Merchant Navy' with an upgrade to the speaker over the factory designed space which encourages the use of a standard 28mm round speaker.

Our project locomotive is one of Hornby's latest releases on the air-smoothed 'Merchant Navy' - 35024 East Asiatic Company in BR lined blue (Cat No. R3632) and you can read our full review of this model here.
