Playing trains - 1974

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Playing trains earlier this evening. B141 and 182 in consist circa 1974, B121 about to depart with typical loose coupled goods train. Weathered 182 has had a LokSound V5 chip installed from wheeltappersdccsound (http://www.wheeltappersdccsounds.co.uk) who now have an extensive number of Irish diesel and Irish steam sound decoder projects. The LokSound V5 has some nice driving features including coasting, and prototypical braking. Functions for rail clank, and cascading wagon coupling snatch as a loose coupled train starts to depart as the slack in each 3 link wagon coupling is taken up and the train length comes into tension. Also a reciprocal sound function for cascading buffer clash as a loose coupled wagon train comes to a halt with each wagon closing the gap moving down the length of the train.

B121 about to depart with loose coupled pick up goods train. B141 and 182 in consist.

Absolutely superb - looks like a selection of Barry Carse’s photos!

Best era of CIE - lots of freight and numerous mixtures of locos and carriages all over the place, and still a few sleepy branch lines.
