I've got three of the earlier 25's; all models of 25/2's with the revised body style and representing the five prototypes that had steam heating boilers fitted, so with water as well as fuel tanks underslung.

I like the idea of sound but would want to retain the models that I have. So for me the question is could the older bodies be fitted to the new sound chassis ?

Has anybody got both who can comment please ?

Bob

p.s. The plastic hand rails supplied by Bachmann were a pain and never looked right. I replaced them with thin wire stuck directly to the body with pva. Looks good and they have not come off (yet).

Hi Rob

You make it sound so easy. (Pun ?)

What kit did you use, does it sound OK and where did you stick the speaker ?

Please post a few more details,

Thanks

Bob

Thanks 34C, I'll start saving (but the way the exchange rate is going credit may be cheaper in the long run).

As well as sound 25's I wonder about 33's. They may have had a couple of extra cylinders but their Sulzers sounded quite similer, only louder, at least when ticking over and starting the train in the station. Or is my memory deficient ? - never did here a 24, 25, 26 or 27 at the same time as a 33: but then I'm sure it was a BR conspiracy to keep them separate !!!!!
