Hello Fellow Members...

I am very interested to know..what is required (if anything) to add coach lighting to coaches running on DCC System?
This is yet another completely new area..to me..

I purchased 2 x Brawa Era 1 Coaches..i contacted Brawa and they told me there were lighting sets availbale..i do not know f these are the best..or maybe better alternatives excist? and in either case, do i require anyting extra to my basic DCC System (NCE PRO-CAB)

all help & advice much appreciated

all the very best Steve

Hi

That flicker free kit is much improved now, see pictures with the mounting board. Each kit has 6 or 9 in it I cant remember.

With the board you can do a complete coach in about 1/2 hour and the spacing is 5mm between each point. It has also has a special spot for a resistor.

A couple of stores stock them in the UK and I know John from Bromsgrove models has them.

Some more ideas for you.











I had some really nice step by step photos with the new Hornby Maunsell coaches but I cant find them. Those coaches great with lighting.

Hope that helps

The only thing is, it's from Australia!
