Quistion about Hornby's Class 09

2428 Views 10 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  7113

I've got a Hornby Class 09, but South West Digital makes a ESU sound decoder for the Class 08, but I don't know if the Class 09 sounds (almost) the same as a Class 08?

And is it correct that a ESU sound decoder from South West Digital 95 pounds costs?

Thanks a lot!

Dear Ryan,
The 09 engines were identical to the 08s except they could go at 27 miles per hour rather than 15! They used the same English Electric 6KT diesel engines, so they would sound identical.
Can't help you over the cost of the decoder; I'm not into DCC myself.
