i sent bachmann an e-mail asking about the switch underneath the unit. whether or not the switch will be removed, this is the reply

Thank you for your enquiry. The Cl 66s no longer have dya/night light but have been modified to have the ability to turn off the tail lights as DC locos.

from what i see is a down-grade this is based on the class 66 sound fitted models.

john,

I am in the other camp to you then as I have had a freightliner 66 since warley 2005 and have still to try switching it to night time running, yet I have rewired the tail lights so that i can independently turn them off.

I consider having the switch turn the tail lights on and off a much better idea, a definate step-up in my books.

Cant wait for the shanks sound 66 one of my fave liveries just dont ask me why, as i have no idea myself!!!

I went for the EWS one, I like the Freightliner livery but the Shanks aspect put me off. I guess it reminds me of toilets!

hi alistair & neil,

alistair i think that it would be better being dcc controlled. that why you don't have to lift the unit off the tracks if and when you want to change to night time or day time running light, i like the shanks livery as well, here is a youtube link... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_lP6nNRW-k...ted&search= of a shanks but no sound. i'll be ordering one soon in the next lot of weeks.

neil it would some where to go. if you take short. lol for a read and a write, in an emergency stop loco plenty of tanks behind ( he he )
