  1. The soundfiles for the MM 201 and 071 decoders are available for download from the ESU website (they do this with all soundfiles they produce for other manufacturers). You can then simply swap out the prime mover sound (or any other sound in the file) for the one from another file. The Lokprogrammer software also contains a library of sounds for this same purpose. Sounds from other files can be saved to this library for convenience. There is a shortage of prototypical Irish horn sounds but Euro and US horn sounds can be altered in pitch to make them more suitable. My own 141/181 sou

  2. Revised 121 class DCC sound demo (as requested) without a musical backing track. Demonstrates some of the specific sound functions. The one function I forgot to record was heavy notching and trashing as a heavy trains slowly accelerates from stationary. The LokSound project is by http://wheeltappersdccsounds.co.uk who do all the Irish sound projects for DCkits. I bought my 141/181 decoders direct from Wheeltappers. I will also be getting my existing ESU/MM 071 sound chips re-blown by 'wheeltappers' so I can get 'PowerDrive' mode, control over notching and the extra functions. Enjoy This L

  4. There was a recent firmware update for the V4 decoders which improved the independent brake function. The deceleration value for the brake is now controlled though CV179 (I think, have to doublecheck!). Previously this CV was for the dynamic brake function. You can now set you the loco's deceleration to maximum (255) and coast until you apply the brake to stop the train. To use this you would need to get Wheeltappers to ensure the firmware is updated. Although this is done automatically when uploading a soundfile. If you're planning to have a lot of ESU decoders in your fleet I stron

  5. Belated congratulations on your choice of the first loco. Presumably it will be relatively easy matter to produce the C/201 at a later date. I can’t see any reference to the number of each variant you are going to produce. As my era is the 1979’s, that’s two GM powered B&T’s and two Supertrain versions. Have to go away and count my pennies. Stephen

  6. Thanks all for likes and coments John CNC'ing parts is OK for one or two off items, but etching would be far quicker for batch runs like your kits Yes, I must send a link to Alan Doherty and NIL and have a chat The second bogie with its detail soldered on and cleaned up while in the sprue. Now the frames are ready to take the third laminate which is sweat soldered on the back Soldered on and cleaned up, the soldering was done with the detail face up and the 3rd laminate frame clamped under, this prevents gravity making the detail parts fall off when the hea

  7. Well folks, we have been asked in person, emailed, lobbied and have had some oh-so subtle hints over the past couple of years about making a certain locomotive. So, we have listened, and we have decided to push ahead and do an A Class for 2019. As you can see, CAD is complete. Looks well, right? We surveyed A39r with permission of the Irish Traction Group and The Downpatrick and Co. Down Railway, both of whom were most helpful and accommodating in the development of this model. They are two fantastic groups, well worth donating to, volunteering with and visiting as they keep our rai

  16. I plan to have at least 1 of each, assuming they don't all sell out first haha. But will mainly focus on the super train, IR and green locos.

  17. More of a tippex man myself. But I have to say the black with yellow panels is a rather attractive livery, even though way outside my preferred era.
