I’m pretty sure that I know the answer to this, but I’ll ask anyway.  I’m planning to run one of my 156’s with a Hornby 153, as the individual 156 cars have to be programmed separately, is it possible to switch off the head/tail lights on the 156 nearest the 153?

Unless you re-wire them to do that, sadly no.

 

The new ones are just the same as the older versions.

 

Charlie

 

All these models have:

 

2 X Low Profile motors in each Carriage on rear bogie as per the prototype.

Full Interior lights in passenger areas.

Seperate Cab lights with 'Autofade' on DCC.

Working door lights with a delay on the rear car as per the prototype on DCC.

Two Pin inter-carriage coupling between the cars for extra track current collection.

Full detailed interior with no motor visible, seperatly painted tables.

Etched window wipers.

Dummy BSI Couplings and NEM Tension Lock couplings supplied.

Over the top underframe detailing with over 170 seperate components!!!

Full detailed corridor connections with kinetic powered coupling system.

Fully Detailed Roof with detail differences on each carriage.

Flickering Passenger Lighting when switched on using DCC.

Day & Night time running lights.

Tinted passenger glazing.

Highly accurate graphics & lettering.

Etched Exhaust Cover & seperate exhaust pipe.

In reply to Jools1959. This is possible, but only on DCC, by programming the two decoders (one in each unit) so the lights all operate on a different function button. You can then get separate markers lights each end, independent day and night headlights and separately switched tail lights. On DC you are not able to do this, as Charlie says. I used an ESU programmer to do mine and it was an easy operation, by programming each unit independently of each other. Just need to work out which function output does what and what F buttons you want the lights on.

Sorry, I should have mentioned that the units are DCC fitted.  At first I couldn’t figure out what Charlie was saying until I realised he was referring to DC.
