Default Hornby TTS?

Thinking of fitting the Hornby TTS into my Castle class. Does anyone have experience of this and does the effects sound right?

Looked on line and the fitting seems straight forward but I also want it to sound the part.

It's a matter of personal opinion, Graham......I have several TTS steam decoders and they are alright at the price but compared to more expensive SoundTrax Econami and ESU Loksound decoders they are noticeably short on quality.......I have fitted a Castle TTS into a Hornby LNER B12 and I am very happy with the result...............HB
P.S......the sound quality is greatly improved if you replace the supplied round speaker with a 'sugar cube' speaker.......well worth the extra 7 or 8........HB

I totally second all that Cadman has said above. I've fitted a couple of the A1-A3 TTS decoders and replaced the speaker with sugar cube speakers. I'm very happy with the result for the price.

Thanks for the advice and I'll fit the TTS and the cube speaker. Decided to also fit into my King as well

Thanks again
