then others reading the read may assume your higher price mentioned is accurate thus possibly costing sales of the model.

 

As my dear old tutor used to say, "Assumption is the mother of all f#*# ups!"  :rolleyes:

 

And with all due respect, one cannot hold a man responsible for what others may assume.  We are each responsible for our own brain cells, surely?  :)

Is there somewhere I can sign up for when more info about the next batch of liveries is produced?

Don't want to miss it but equally don't want to check the website daily.

And equally don't want to get bombarded with other products / marketing in emails.

Yes keep looking on here.    News on the next one will be posted as and when.   Charlie

Better late than never!

 

The Provincial livery is finished, just awaiting final livery samples to check the production quality.  Not long now.    Charlie

Great news, we've got a couple of younger members of the Dolgellau group into their units and are champing at the bit to see and have a go of the 156 when it comes!

I think my credit card details may have changed since I paid the deposits - will we get an e-mail when the final amount is due so I can amend the card details as necessary?

Hello,

Could somebody please let me know the actual functions keys for the various lights on the EMT version recently released. I am trying to put on the carriage lights with F2 but the key does'nt latch on my Prodigy Express.

Many thanks, Michael

Hi Michael,

 

I think from memory the carriage lights are on F12 which should work as I use the Prodigy too.

 

cheers

F2 on the Prodigy isn't latching.

I wish this could be changed :/

 

There are potential opportunities to change whatever function is mapped to F2 though.  I did this with some Express Models lights and changed the F number to a latching one.

 

I have to do it again later today with another loco and try and move the F2 function to another function number.

The Prodigy Express is a US system. On virtually all sound-fitted US diesels F1=bell, F2=horn so making F2 non-latching makes sense (sound is initially enabled, and can be turned on or off with F8.

 

F2 being non-latching makes using sound-fitted Trix models tricky, as F2 is used to turn the sound on...

F5:   When parking the loco, dump the air from the system. (Real loco would have the handbrake on)

F18:   Track maintanance gangs sent these on the track as an warning to the driver  to stop.. They also can protect the rear on the train if derailed or broken down.

F21:  If its cold you need heating.

 

Hope this makes sense.    Charlie

F21 - Until more recently on an EMT 156 you also need a smoke generator, as they often gave out plumes of smoke, with passengers thinking the unit was on fire!  Some were really, really, really bad - occasionally you could not see the other end of the coach!

If Digital, CV155 will change the Destinations, 37 different ones to choose from.
