Wow, @Lemosteam way to make things right!!  I appreciate it very much.

E. J.

@cbroughton67 , Nope, nope nope.

Anyone that bought some of these please contact me at http://www.keystonedetails.com/contact-us/ to provide mailing information for replacements after Chris and I work out the changes.

I am fully committed to my designs, so please contact me to make this right. I have no qualms about direct ship from Shapeways to you for the replacements.

Also, please monitor your Shapeways accounts as I may try to contact you there as well.  Thanks for your support.

I got @Lemosteam 's replacement enclosure yesterday, and it's one small tweak away from being on-the-money! The upper chamber was about 2mm too long, so I cut it down and covered the end with some 0.020" x 0.080" styrene strip. With the chassis and rear light tube mods, it fits like a glove, and I was able to complete the install this evening. I can't wait to get second loco completed and the correct sound files loaded next!


Thanks again for all your time and effort to make this enclosure, John!

Hi Chris.

Did you end up going with the 9x16mm speaker?  It looks like it from the photo . . .

Yes, @jdcolombo , the enclosure fits an SBS or a Soberton 9x16 speaker.  The design is corrected and ready to go.

This individuals whom have ordered previously have been notified that I have reordered their replacement enclosure quantities and these will be direct shipped to the respective customers.

I appreciate everyone's patience and @cbroughton67 's diligence in providing design feedback. 

Here is a link to the corrected enclosure:

Great work Chris and John. Always cool to have “inspired” something.

Chris, looks like you added ditch lights up front, too.

John, is there a version for the 8x12 speaker, too?

I just marvel at how far we've come with 3D printer technology.  Someone makes a functional prototype of something, and a couple of days later John LeMerise has a production version popping out of a 3D printer.

It's pretty mind-boggling when you sit and think about it.

No but I could make one very quickly!

It's a locomotive I detailed and ditch-lighted several years ago, and it's just now getting sound. The 73100 board's "aux 1" and "aux 2" pads are too small to be practical, so I just wired them in with the headlight.


The 9x16 speaker is a squeeze, but it fits, and it sounds great. I so appreciate @Lemosteam 's willingness to design it!

But the Aux3/4 pads are good sized. Aux1/2, with the 0402 SMD LEDs are almost useless. I did try unsoldering them, once. Didn’t destroy anything, but don’t want to try again.

Cool, will give them a try when I need to do another of these.
