  1. Hi Here's a pic I took of a V100 stabled at Koblenz station last year. David
  2. Just been reading through this thread for the first time. Great stuff. More please. David.
  3. Hi Jacques I have just temporarily enclosed the speaker supplied at the moment. To be fair its more than powerful enough for the small room the layout is in. It was just a matter of putting the to pick up wires on the decoder into the power terminals. I have bought a double throw switch today so I can isolate the decoder when I want to read and programme cv's on the loco's. Rod Your probably right about the pricing if we where talking about something Hi Fi. I am thinking about something that is purely prime move, horns and bells . Perhaps a basic board with a USB connection or SD card reader to load and or store the info required on and outputs for the users choice of speaker or headphone. The MRC decoder you kindly pointed me in the direction of is more than adequate for my needs. I was thinking about something more flexible for UK outline users for instance. David
  4. Hi I really think some manufacturer should seriously look at proper system under the baseboard. It could be wired to the wiring bus for matching with on board decoders or AC current draw. The sound could by downloadable and transferable by USB. I am sure that lots of people would find an affordable system of this type more than good enough, especially for small one loco in steam layouts. David
  5. Hi David A video for you. Once again sorry about the camera work, I find it impossible to film and operator the layout smoothly. David
  6. I have been playing around with mrc decoder which is fitted under the baseboard. The sound seemed very high pitched so I made little speaker box out of aerosol lid and its made a surprising difference to the quality of the sound. I can post another video if anyone's interested?. David
  7. Another test of the MRC decoder, This time trying to make Alco type noises. I an not claiming its brilliant but it does add some play value. David
  8. Hi Daniel My idea of recycling the boards hasn't worked not to worry I find conti board works for me, it is also cheap and readily available, Hi CSX2004 I bought Noch type puffer bottle and some static grass at a model railway show, I think a electric static grass applicator would probably do a better job. I am very much a budget modeller. For example the sound decoder set up came to £43, its sound pretty good for EMD stuff but I couldn't recommend it for Alco's. David.
  9. Hopefully the link should be of my experiments with an MRC 1909 decoder fitted under the baseboard (sorry about the poor camera work). The idea was pinched from the Yorkford PA layout at the Leeds MRS. David
  10. Sorry shortliner I messed up loading the video to youtube will try again later.
  11. Hi I enjoyed seeing the layout at the Leeds show. Thanks for the advice you gave me on fitting a sound decoder under the layout. Just received and fitted an mrc 1909 to my little switching layout - works a treat, not bad at all for forty quid. Thanks again David.
  12. I have just fitted one of these decoders to an Atlas HO GP38 . The chip reads as manufacturer I.D.134 model 001. So far so good. It runs great without any adjustments to the CV settings. David
