  1. I live in Australia and the convenience of purchasing a sound file for my Loksound decoders via an email is fantastic. I don't have to send the decoder to UK and due to the fluctuations in currency it is cheaper to buy the decoders from the USA and send the decoder serial number to the supplier. I know the sound file is locked to a particular decoder but the greater benefit is that I can now store my sound files on my computer or in the cloud. I get mine from several suppliers in UK and all are able to supply variations to the original. Peter
  2. I ended up buying a set Hornby X6398 Class 92 Drive Unit (Motor Bogie) Wheel Set and changing the wheels as the Class 92 are smaller. The drive gear is the same as well as the shaft length and diameter so problem now solved
  3. Hi John, I agree about the lights intensity and most of my units are fitted with yellow LEDs instead of white with high value resistor to dim them. I fit lights mainly so that I can see what direction the loco is set at rather than illumination. I tracked down an old Craftmans kit (DK17) to carry out the conversion and it has the grilles covered with extension bits, etc Peter
  4. Its just past noon here and raining so being in bed seems a good idea
  5. Hi RO, That's fantastic especially with a pic of D5. I am guessing that D5 is blue with yellow ends and not yet renumbered 44005? Do you have any sources for the use of the disc codes on the LMR? Thanks Peter
  6. I am modifying a Mainline Class 45 to a Class 44. The locomotive is hopefully going to end up as D5 "Cross Fell". I am seeking information as to the lighting system at each end. What colours were they and how were they used . I have attached a copied photo of D2 as an empty shell and I note there are 6 lights, some of which would be covered by the discs. My unit will be in the "green" mode Looking forward with thanks for your answers Peter
  7. Looking for 1 set of these wheels for a project. More than happy to pay postage to Australia. (None at Hornby, Peters Spares and bought the last 3 sets from Lendons of Cardiff) Please PM if you can help me Peter
