  1. Murphaph, Sorry about the confusion. I read the instructions again, that came with the van.(The PCB contains an eight-pin DCC decoder socket). When I bought the van from Marks, he told me they didn't have the right decoder, the only one he had was a wired one, and the wires would be seen hanging down in the compartment. That made me think that there was such a decoder without wires. Back to the drawing board. Thanks, Controller.
  2. Murphaph, I had a look at the decoder you suggested. I has everything I require, except that one is wired . The one I need is a eight pin direct connection. There is not much room in the van, and the wires would show. I will ask the lads in IRM if they have any, or maybe they can tell me where I can get the right one. Thanks, Controller.
  3. Murphaph, your a gentleman, thank you. Controller.
  4. Thanks NIR, Again, good advice. I would have come to grief before I even started. Can the proper decoders be purchased online, EBay perhaps?. I could take a look, if I knew which one to buy. Better safe than sorry. Controller.
  5. Thanks Murphaph, It's always good to seek advice from the experts. I don't want to blow all the lights before I get a chance to enjoy them. Maybe IRM might have some, or know where to get them. Thanks Again, Controller.
  6. Thanks NIR, I don't have anything like that at the moment. I was just trying to avoid online, postal charges, Brexit etc. Marks Models were sold out when I bought the plough van and ballast wagons just after Christmas. I have one or two old decoders that may have light functions, but they are wired. Thanks, Controller.
  7. Where can I buy a decoder for the IRM plough van?. Thanks, Controller.
  8. Thanks Wrenneire, Had a look at that, now to find a chip. Controller
  9. Can someone please tell me which decoder fits the IRM ballast plough van. I have removed the top part of the van without wrecking anything, but now I need help with where do I place the new decoder. Also where can I buy these decoders. Thanks, Controller
  10. Thanks BosKonay, The minute I asked this question, I remembered that most of the money I have is in the form of vouchers for Marks Models. So for 325 euro (including vouchers) I will get six wagons and two plough vans. I will be happy enough with that for now. Thanks again Controller.
  11. Hi. I have been looking at the IRM bundle pack nine wagons plus two plough vans for 375euro. Can someone tell me if these are authentic looking wagons and vans. They are from the era 1977-1987. I am planning to buy some plough vans and wagons. Is this bundle a good deal?. Thanks Controller.
  12. Thanks Lads, I think I will, as you advise, run the locos a lot more. If I got to the stage where I want to adjust CV5 or CV6 how do I find the speed settings in CV5 or 6?. I will only do this as a last resort. I am a little bit more confident in changing CVs after all your help. Controller
  13. Hi Irishthump, I did as you suggested, CV54 to 0 and F1. I did it three times, but B131 is still pulling B125. I have the two locos run in, 30mins each direction. I will keep running them as stand alone and maybe they may loosen up a bit more. When I run them as MU there is a grinding noise from B131. I will do as you suggested a few more times and see will that help. Thanks again. Controller.
  14. Thank you gentlemen. I now have all sound up and running. I knew I could depend on the experts. If you could indulge me , I have one more small problem. One loco run faster than the other, and is inclined to drag the slower one. There is not much of a difference, but over time I am concerned it may damage the motor. Thanks again. Controller.
  15. Irishthump, Thank you, I entered value 201 to CV21 like you suggested and I now have sound of the engines starting up. I now need to get the horns working . If you can help me with that, I would be very grateful. Thanks again. I am working with the Gaugemaster Prodigy Advance. The head and marker lights are working as they should. Controller
