Hi Charlie 

I see there is a sound project for the soon to be released Hornby class 91 on the dckits website.



I am interest to hear what we can expect and to know if there will be variants to suit the different eras, such as the doors chimes or different operators

original door chimes


There is a YouTube video that could make an amazing addition with the prerecorded messages from BR - listen from 9:42 onwards

To answer your question Rockmonkey;


My existing Class 91 & Mk4 DVT sound chips already have the facility for the user to pick one of three different operating periods, which set the type of despatch whistle (traditional single or modern 'two-tip'), the presence or not of door opening beepers (the coaches didn't originally have them), the type of door closing beepers (they changed upon refurbishment) and the type of door closing mechanism (including the modern 'seagull' ones).


The two projects are being updated to full v5 standards in readiness for the Hornby model. You will be pleased to hear that the new versions will include all of the automated announcements featured in that Electra video plus many more recorded from the same unit (in fact the full set of those available, to the best of my knowledge). These were recorded in ideal conditions at one of the Mk4 depots.


The announcements will also feature in an all-new project I'm doing for the Mk4 coach. This is designed to go somewhere in the middle of your Mk4 rake and work in harmony with the 91 & DVT chips. It will feature, amongst other things; the static converter 'electrical groaning' sound, air conditioning, door beepers, brake sounds, flange squeal plus of course the aforementioned announcements. I've made a working prototype and it does lift things to another level having sound from the middle of the train, given how long these rakes are.


We don't just throw these things together :-)

Believe the 207 is the source of the thumper sounds, not aware of a significant difference in the sounds between those and the 205. 



No difference apart from the Horns might be nicer!!!  

We also do the 201/202/206 Engines whice hare a turbo whistle.

We have been selling them from here for 4 years, and the V5s with the revised project for two years without any issues, try a two digit address and see what happens, sounds like something at your end I think.



Worked on the power cab fine on test. Seems to be the railcom issue. Need to work out how to turn railcom off as the ESU unit doesn’t allow that change in the quick menu

It can be turned off by setting CV29 bit 3 to 0. If it's a legomanbiffo project, let me know which one and I'll tell you what to set CV29 to.


But make sure your ECoS is updated to the latest firmware and you might not have the problem any more.
