On our Multiple Class 20 you get 2 defined Loco Start ups and engine revs and not stereo sound.
• *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 Lights Options, 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 British Rail Class 17 Production was undertaken between 1962 and 1965, with the locomotives being assigned to the north of Britain and the Scottish Region. Early on it was determined that the locomotive was not suited to heavy freight trains, and they quickly acquired a reputation for unreliability largely due to the engines, which continued to deliver poor performance even after extensive modifications. The Class 17 proved to be one of the least successful of the Type 1s. Withdrawals took place from the late 1960s to 1971, some locomotives having a working life of less than five years. Several were sold to industrial users; only one example has been preserved.
