  1. Hi Steve W, sorry, but due to some alarming family news yesterday morning, now thankfully resolved, I missed your post yesterday, but you seem to have been given the answer to your problem, best of luck with the solution. regards Mike
  2. Just for completeness, I did finish the S & T Inspection saloon and also the Q13 the S & T saloon is available if of any interest regards Mike
  3. here are some photos that I took on the SVR in May 2009 for comparison hope it helps. regards Mike
  4. Hi Chris, you are more than welcome. regards Mike
  5. Just been scanning some old slides and films on to digital and came across this set at Embsay taken in the early 90s. I hope that they are useful for the re-doers, mine will be D9526 regards Mike
  6. Hi Chris, many thanks for your reply, will have to think about the running lights, Stay safe and well regards Mike
  7. Hi Chris's, A winner for sure, well done. Will the headcode letters/numerals also be on the Railtec sheet? Will the running lights be wired up? Stay safe and well regards Mike
  8. Hi Phil, back in October 2018 I installed an ESU V4XL into a Heljan 47 for a fellow Club member and discussed the fan speed problem with SWDigital who had supplied the decoder. Their response was that on some Heljan diesels there is a 'pot' which can adjust the speed or if the 'pot' is not present, set CV31 = 16 CV32 = 0 CV294 = 0 - 31 (output speed) I adjusted the CVs and yes it does control the speed, but as stated elsewhere here, a certain amount of sound is still heard. I hope this is of interest. Stay safe all. regards Mike
  9. Hi Paul, many thanks for your responses, they fully answer my questions. regards Mike
  10. What size IceCube speakers especially depth, can be accommodated in the speaker trays and how are they then wired to the corresponding tabs on the decoder? regards Mike
  11. Hi Callum, yes, mine work, operated via F6 on the controller. kind regards Mike
  12. Hi Callum, John Gymer at YouChoos pointed out that these speakers must be connected in SERIES when I ordered the decoder and speakers for the Class 50, so he same would apply here with the Class 33. kind regards Mike
  13. Hi Callum, not as such, but if you look closely at the second picture, you can just see both speakers laying side by side in the space under the decoder. As I mentioned in the text, I applied a strip of insulating tape along the inside face of the upstand to ensure that the metal parts of the speaker could not touch it and therefore short out. The speakers are YouChoos Ice Cube 40x18x7 and at present, on;y one is actually wired in. regards Mike
  14. Hi Keith, look no further, I have not wired up the roof fan. Aux5/FA3 is the terminal that you need, and that appears to be controlled via Function 11 and CV45 with a value of 16 - this needs adjusting to suit your own requirements. Hope this helps. regards Mike
  15. Glad that you got things sorted and can now move on with the decoder. regards Mke
