  1. Jamie Goodman's chip is an unrefurbished 37/0. The Legoman "Wensleydale 37/4" chip is recorded from 37674 (which is a 37/5) and is ideal for 37/4s, 37/5s and 37/7s. 37/4s have the higher speed tickover when supplying ETH to the train, otherwise theres no sound difference between 37/4, 37/5 and 37/7. None of the sound projects I've had are specific enough to have this higher tickover included although its possible to simulate it with DriveHold. Most suppliers list their 'refurbished' sound projects as 37/4s but they're suitable for all refurbished 37s from 37401 to 3789
  2. Hi guys, have tried it with both short (3) and long (8709) addresses with no success. I've not used 8709 on the set before. I've also tried the decoder on a Lokprogrammer / ESU decoder tester with no issues, so it's pointing towards the Lenz set being at fault here? Dave
  3. I've put a Loksound V5 (58419) in a Dapol O gauge 08 fitted with an Olivias Trains sound project. On my Lenz set, this doesn't respond to any controls, although all the lights are constantly illuminated. On my powercab the loco works absolutely as it should (sound, lights, changing CVs etc). My Lenz set has the latest firmware (as far as I'm aware) and operates locos fitted with Loksound V4 XL, V5XL, Zimo and Hornby TTS sound decoders with no issues. Has anyone encountered similar and found a solution (or something to try?) Thanks, Dave

    Dapol 08

    Different batches have different product codes. The brass bush was only present on the first batch (codes 7D-008-001 to 006. The second releases were the original body style but amended chassis (007 to 012) and the most recent batch is the later body style (013 to 017)
  5. THanks Locoman, I was looking at putting it in a Heljan 37 so I might not take the risk now but will keep an eye out for a large scale decoder :-)
  6. Are the D+H decoders available for larger scale locos too, such as Heljan's O gauge items? I'm interested in trying the 37 sound in a Heljan loco but doubt the OO gauge locos available will cope with the current draw? Dave
  7. Maybe this? It's not an A4 but the only event of this kind I can think of - certainly can't think of an A4 doing it but willing to be proven wrong :-) Dave
  8. Hi Michael, is there any news on the single car Derby Lightweight kit? Would be very interested in a model of Iris :-) Dave
  9. That's more than enough to get started on, thanks for the info! Dave
  10. Good afternoon, I'm currently converting a number of O gauge brake vans into their 1995 identities for use on flask trains but can't find an identity for this Railfreight grey and red van which seems to be a regular on the Trawsfynydd workings at the time.... I've got the later liveried vehicles pretty much down to a tee but any gen on this example (examples?) would be hugely appreciated :-) (some of the photos show the number but not quite clearly enough!) Dave
  11. As there was nothing physical shown for the LLC 50 it can't really be stated which was better or worse?
  12. Sample on show at Doncaster show today
  13. That's the G scale range which has been available in the UK for several years.
  14. Considering its fictitious...nobody I imagine?
