What can this sound generator do?
This sound generator kit (manufacturer code MK134) produces classic steam engine sounds, making it the perfect addition to any model railway or train set. You can alter the volume and the apparent speed of the train, and there’s even a push button for a steam engine whistle. The kit has a slide switch for the engine noise and separate push switch for the whistle. With 52 parts, this kit is great for beginners and those looking for a more complicated solder kit.

What can I learn from this sound generator kit?
Practise soldering and learn about electronics and circuits with this electronic sound generator kit. Use resistors, capacitors, a transistor, microchip and a speaker to learn how to connect a circuit. This circuit contains many different components, giving you a great opportunity to see them all in action. You can use the two potentiometers to alter your volume and speed. This is essentially a two in one kit as the circuits for the train sound and the whistle only come together at the speaker, otherwise they are completely independent of each other. The kit requires a soldering iron and solder, and may require wire cutters.

How easy is this kit to solder?
Simple to solder, this kit is ideal for beginners learning about electronics or rail enthusiasts looking to add the finishing touches to a project. Putting the kit together is just the start of your adventure – you may want to create an enclosure (not included) for the kit to protect the electronics. This kit requires a single 9V battery (not included) and comes with a battery clip.
