My children had a train each for Christmas (a Eurostar for one and a Pendalino for the other).
So it was only fair that Dad have a loco for the new layout.
This was a Bachmann "DCC Ready" class 66.

When it arrived, I tried it with a DC transformer and noticed it had a switch underneath which switched it's lights on and off.
Pretty neat I thought but when I added a DCC decoder, no lights.
Tried the switch in different settings, tried function keys "0" through "9", nothing.

Now the decoder was a Hornby and my controller is a Hornby "Select".
Is this a situation of the Hornby hardware not being unto to the job?

switching the mini plug around fixed the problem.

I've now got lights. thanks for the info.

-----------------

Just one other thing the lights switch from white to red when the loco changes direction.
Can I have control over the lights or does this involve a lot of messing around with wires and things from the decoder?
