• *Flange Squeal only operates at low speed turns off over 15mph

• ** A Loco can’t have Tails light lit when coupled to other vehicles this includes another Loco, wagons, coaches & brake vans. This was a punishable offence for the Driver on Main Line operation. Intermediate Tails lights on trains had a Special Bell Code for Signalman as this was termed as 2 Trains in 1 Section a sackable offence for the Signalman. 
This how serious this was in Railway Times right up to Power Signal Boxes taking over by using Track Circuit Block Signalling (TCB). 
This took away from most signalman to observe EVERY train had passed with Tail Light lit. Imagine a train becoming divided in a section then passing the Signal box the signalman saw the Tail Light of the Loco and allowed another train into this section with another part of the train still in the section. All retailers have always overlooked this apart from Bachmann having a flirt with switches under some chassis.

• Our Tail Light Mod on all Models except Hornby, allows you to turn either end on/off using F6 & F7 on V5 Decoders and nothing to do with directional lights

• *** Drive Hold this replaces notching up & down which was quite hard for us to explain & Locked the Engine rev. Using Drive Hold Press F12 Nothing will happen until you select the speed you require. Still the Loco will not move until you turn off F12 the trick using this is to turn this off before MAX Revs are reached, if not the Loco revs will decrease back to idle. Once the Loco has set off you can increase the speed & engine revs as normal 
Please Note due to the need to keep these Functions to an acceptable level we have incorporated duel functions on F5 & F9 the down side to this option is that when the Power is turned on the track or the Loco is placed on a live track you will hear the coupling ping & the Drivers Acknowledgement. We are slowly rolling out all V5 updates starting with Diesels

The Stay Alive takes it’s power from the track, the Decoder takes it’s power from the Stay Alive.  If you incur stuttering  either on your Main Track or when going over points this cures this problem. High cost but it works.

History

The Class 57 diesel locomotives were re-manufactured from Class 47s by Brush Traction of Loughborough between 1998 and 2004. The locomotives were fitted with re-conditioned EMD engines and the same model of traction alternator as that fitted to the Class 56.
The Class 57 is a re-engineered locomotive, rebuilt by Brush Traction, Loughborough from redundant Class 47 locomotives. The locomotives are fitted with a refurbished EMD engine and a re-conditioned alternator, improving reliability and performance. Three variants exist, one for freight and two for passenger operations. Each cost £300,000, about one-third that of a new-build locomotive.
The class has its origins in 1997 when Freightliner ordered an initial six locomotives. A prototype locomotive was converted by leasing company Porterbrook, with electric train heating in 2001, with a view to obtaining orders from passenger companies.
Class 57s have operated for Freightliner (Class 57/0), Virgin Trains (57/3) and Great Western/ GWR (57/6). Since original work has dried up or operating circumstances have changed, the locos have also been employed by Network Rail, Direct Rail Services (DRS), West Coast Railway Co. (WCRC) and Arriva Trains Wales. 57s are something of a ‘Marmite’ class with enthusiasts because although they keep loco-hauled services alive, they ‘snatched’ the bodies of much-loved Class 47 donors!
