Fitting DCC/ Sound? Please Look HERE.

Model does not have working tail lights.

Please refer to the enclosed instructions for headcode changing.

Please be aware if fitting DCC there is a fault on the PCB that causes the lights to operate in reverse direction.
The loco operates the lights correctly on analogue (12v DC) but if you wish to fit DCC yourself please let us know on the order and we can rectify the lighting, this however will cause the lights to be incorrect when running on analogue.

Any fitted by us (DCC or Sound) will have this corrected.

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