DCC Upgrade Modernisation Update 29th May 2020
On 27th May 2020 we advised that Hornby R053 LNER B17 Manchester United and Hornby R1019 LNER A1 Flying Scotsman – currently in the workshops of Horns & Whistles Workshops awaiting upgrade to DCC (with sound if possible). Latest news the B17 had been converted but alas no sound as no space for speaker. Horns & Whistles Workshops have provided two videos showing the test run of the B17 and A1 which completed its upgrade to DCC/TTS Sound.
B17 2862 Manchester United:
A1 4472 Flying Scotsman
Locomotives should be in shed Tuesday 2nd June 2020
Further Locomotives will be sent for DCC conversion (with sound where possible) until all stock has been upgraded and available for traffic duties. Those that are not up-gradable/convertible will be gracefully retired to the “Ennitoun Railway Museum).
