Question

I am lighting a Hornby 0-6-0 BR diesel shunter. I am using a Hornby Decoder, Code R8249 four function Decoder V1. I am trying to get all the marker lights to stay on all the time, whether in forward or reverse.Can anyone help me with the wiring plan to achieve this.

@controller

Set up the marker lights to run off the green or purple wire, you will have to switch them on/off manually on F1 or F2 depending on which wire you use- thats the simplest way.

or

You could wire the marker lights off the directional yellow & white wires but you will have to use diodes in the circuit to stop an electrical loop when you alternate between forward & reverse, otherwise both headlights will stay on! thats the complex way.

Thanks Murrayec, Green or purple wires sound the easiest way . I will give that a try later.

Thanks,

Controller.
