VIDEO: Hornby 'Princess'
with digital sound
In the latest issue of Hornby Magazine we show how to install digital sound, 'stay alive', working lamps and a smoke generator into Hornby's new 2020 version of the Stanier 'Princess Royal' in 'OO' gauge as part of our Hornby Centenary special issue. Watch the finished model in action here.
IN 2020 Hornby released its all-new Stanier 'Princess Royal' 4-6-2 (HM154) as part of our Hornby Centenary Special issue in HM160 we injected new components to bring this stunning 'Pacific' to life with ZIMO digital sound, working lamps, a 'stay alive' pack and a smoke generator. The full step by step guide is in HM160 - on sale from September 3 2020 - and Hornby Magazine subscribers can also read the feature here on KeyModelWorld in the Digital Control section.
The project uses a ZIMO MX645R sound decoder with a Digitrains sound file as its basis which we have added DCC Concepts working lamps, a Seuthe smoke generator and a Digitrains 6-20 second 'stay alive' capacitor pack. The result is a locomotive which sounds superb, matching the quality of its exterior detail through the use of a high performance speaker.
