    Via f40ph-2

    You going to make the version with the third xenon headlight?

    What's your Best custom locomotive?

    Has to be an AC, CP doesn't have Dash 9's.

    Help Programming the T55 ES44DC

    CV08 = x008 will reset the whole decoder to factory settings.

    Some CN units from my collection...

    Guessing by the strobes, I'd say it is most likely an RCL.

    loksound troubbles

    Call ESU Out of St. Cloud. They're very nice about customer support. Its either that or they were afraid I'd haul myself up there, as I only live 45 mins away.

    I got my DT400 upgraded, its really really nice. How do you like your 402?

    SD60M w/DCC&Sound

    Doesn't matter. ES series use GEVO12's. Dash 9's AC44's and Dash 8's use FDL16's with fuel injectors.

    GEVO's & ACe/DCe's

    HOLY CRAP! I will put an MRL ACe on order!

    SD60M w/DCC&Sound

    The IM GEVOs will come with Soundtraxx Tsunami's custom recorded from a GEVO-12 engine. It will have the 3rd generation GE sound we've been looking for, but will not be accurate for GE's with FDL16's. Its been said they are making just for the manufacturer, but later will produce decoders with...

    Athearn RTR gp35

    The new SD45's are damn fine models if you ask me, I have the GN 400 in HO.

    Sound and DCC into an old Athearn GP59?

    I do not know if you can have directional ditchlights without adding a seperate function decoder. But I do know ditchlights can flash, you need to add a 470 Ohm Resistor inline with the function wire-headlight connection to keep from blowing the bulb.

    Sound and DCC into an old Athearn GP59?

    GP60s use a EMD 16-710G3A engine. 16 cylinders producing 3800 HP. The GP59 uses a 12-710G3A engine with 12 cylinders producing 3500 HP. The decoder you'd obviously want to use is a EMD 710 Diesel Tsunami Decoder. I highly recommend it, I use one for my EMD F59PHI and it sounds very nice.

  15. BNSF dude
