The Minoru is designed to take the supplied round speaker under the tender weight.

If a round enclosure is supplied, it needs to be discarded, and the back of speaker sealed to improve bass.

I took the pickups from an A3 tender assy, and fitted them to the Tornado tender. required two slots adding to take the solder lugs.

Being an oldie, I preferred steam.

However, at this moment in time, I have become obsessed with deisel.

I now know the differences between a class 31 and a class 20, etc. No, they do not all look the same after all.

This hobby is dangerous for your wallet.

Get a class 50 deisel. Nice one in NSE livery going cheap at Rails of Sheffield.

I reckon the postage and packing is how they make their money. Can't be the selling price.

I've had two local suppliers move away from me for their convenience,

since I took up this hobby.

I'm more than happy to go to Rails of Sheffield these days.

I would be tempted, but have suddenly got a liking for deisels. How this hobby can lead one astray .

The TTS decoder can be used to operate lights, but the flickering function has to be a part of the firebox circuit.

According to Hornby Support today they have only had problems with certain decoders using some non Hornby controllers.

They are coming back to me on my Castle and Class 47 problems.
