Can I use a dc transformer to power it or do I need a different one because I live in the US I can't use the UK one

How many decoder pins are required for this lovely 0-6-0? I would like to install a sound chip so is there enough room? It would be a good idea if HORNBY included this information in the information about the model.

Great Introduction to Digital

This is a lovely train set. For the price you get an awful lot. The locomotive itself is nicely detailed and well constructed. All the electronics that come with it are black, shiny and impressive. Don't be put off by the technology, once set up and installed its well worth it.
