Hi All,

This is just a short piece of film showing five locos, 071, 141, 201, 111 and a hunslett in construction stage running to test out the sounds, to date I’ve converted around 20 plus locos to DCC thus far, and enjoying every minute. Difficult to hold a phone whilst filming and a throttle on the other controlling My only regret is, Should had converted the layout earlier. Enjoy TDR

The locos look really well on the layout. Glad you've enjoyed the switch to DCC and sound. It adds a whole new dimension to driving model trains. Layout looks really well. I love the walls and green foliage.

John-r I use the Gaugemaster prodigy advance2 and the sound chips are from Mr Sound Guy with the exception of the hunslett, it being a bachmann 20 TDR

Raymond, I'm delighted to see that you converted to DCC you won't regret it,

It will really suit your fantastic layout, I am five years into DCC and certainly wouldn't go back now.

Best of luck with it.:tumbsup:

Hi all having made the change to DCC I decided to change the cumbersome black box control panel, below are the new slim line perspex facias that will replace it.
