Good evening everyone.

 

This may have been covered before, but can anyone tell me if DCC sound for 37906 is available? I'd heard a rumour that you can get this as a 'special request' from Howes, who also do a 37901 chip.

 

Thanks for any help with this.

37 901 to 904 had Mirrlees, 37 905&6 had Ruston. Beware that the survivors sound very different in preservation than they did in BR days, as the troublesome silencers have I think been removed. Not that anyone is complaining! :sungum: hth, kev.

Hi

Howes Models list a 37 901 Slug Sound Decoder. Digitrains have a Zimo sound decoder for the 37/9's fitted with the Mirrless power unit

Thanks for the info so far.

 

I spoke to Howes yesterday and they told me they no longer do special requests, as the workload on the guy who does them was getting too great. I did point out that now that the Kernow limited edition pair of 905/6 have been released, there may be a market to do it as part of their range. It's certainly a distinctly different sound to 37901-4.

 

If anyone has attempted a version of their own, I'd be very interested to see a clip of it...

quick reply from bryan to clarify the above......

 

 

 I will be doing the Ruston 37906 as soon as I get the recordings from my friend, this is not a special request it will be a new project to complete the 4 variants of Class 37 sound.

 

the special request reference mentioned by Howes is actually  to do with altering existing programs to suit individuals on a bespoke basis. some thigs can still be be done easily on the Lok 4 , but due to the completely new structure, things that were releatively easy to do on the 3.5,are now  more difficult and  time consuming.

 

The Slug 6 will be done  but it wont be out for a little while as it is a new project, as soon as it is, Jim will put it up on Youtube and Howes will list it, I would be looking at late Feb early March all being well,   hope that clears up any confusion.

 

 

 Happy New Year to all

 Bryan
