• *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
Heljan have stated that they have given this Model Cab Lights, what they have done is actually remove the back of the destination Indicator so when you turn on the directional lights the white light shines into the Cab. This is OK but you cannot turn this light off without turning the destination lights. This is Totally wrong as we all know you cannot drive at night in a car with interior lights on you just cannot see outside correctly. This is exactly the same for a Train Driver so you would never see the leading Cab light lit whilst a train was moving his 1st action as he set off was to turn the cab light off.
If you look at trains at night you will see that most Trailing Cabs on Loco’s have the Cab light lit. This is such silly but obvious reason once you know the reason why. Siding mainly are unlit so when the train enters the sidings the driver normally changes ends! He leaves the Cab with the lights on, when he changes ends from the floor level there is a door handle on lots of Older Loco’s at the bottom of the door and the centre of the door. When the Driver opens the door from floor level on opening the door with the Cab Light on it illuminates the door area making it a lot easier for him to climb onboard.
Our Cab Light fitting seals the rear of the destination light, we then fit a yellow LED which is prototypical to the cab light effect a Loco in the 60-80’s had.
