QUOTE (dwb @ 3 Jan 2008, 23:11) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>There is a group of holes arranged as a grid on the underside of the tender of my new Jubilee "Hong Kong". It's the sort of grid which covers the loud speaker in plastic electronic equipment enclosures. I haven't yet dismantled the tender to see if there are any other "interesting" bits on the other side of the moulding, but once I get a decoder I will be having a look and taking some photos. It there is to be a tender mounted speaker, the tender upper body moulding will have to change as it still has the complete bunker sides.

Whether or not this means a Jubilee with sound will be announced this year, I don't know. But someone is planning for it in the future, at least for anything coupled to a Stanier tender.

As for the rest; I do hope there's a new ex LNER locomotive - a reworked V2 would be very nice.


One would have to say these holes give a strong indication of impending steam sound, and I would not bet against them wanting to have it on sale before Hornby!
