A couple of weeks ago I sent a Hornby Black Five over to DCC Concepts in Perth, Western Australia. Well the little darling came back from Richard yesterday after he had worked his magic and after a brief test, It arrived at 4.00Pm and I leave for work at 6.00pm, all I can say it's magic. As I have done plenty installs of decoders this was something new for me, to actually send a loco to someone else to have the work done. Richard has put a fair bit of effort into this and the result is superb. The loco now has a head lamps denoting a freight loco, firebox lighting effect that dances and flickers as the fireman chucks a few shovelfuls into the fire box, simulated wheel slip, brake squeal and then I run out of time. I'll have to get a small camcorder and do a few you tube type vids to let everyone appreciate the sound of a Black Five in the garage

I'll post more when I get more time

I have Brit to all set to go.

I'd like to hear the sound in the Black Five loco. I look forward to the video.

Well I finally got around to getting that mini DV cam so I can do you tube type videos. I only made one small technical error I didn't read the box. This small oversight resulted in me buying a memory card bigger than the camera can handle. So untill I drive back into town I'm stuck using the internal memory which is only 16MB. This results in 20 second videos.
So one Black Five with sound by DCC Concepts in Perth WA in a very short video.

Mornin' Charles, and Happy New Year!
I just wondered if you were now able to post a longer video clip of that Black 5 yet. If so you could use YouTube, ( ignoring the knockers of this media ).Youtube allow up to 10 mins duration for user uploads.
Reason I ask is that I've got at least 3 more to build and I'm looking for a bit of variance within the Stanier bracket, different use of hooter etc. It would be great to hear all the functions and whether they are random, assigned to a function, is the long crow playable or fixed duration, etc. Does it feature wagon buffer clash, as Howes does?
Cheers
Steve

*** It can Steve - every sound chip I produce is to a degree bespoke, depending on the wants and needs of the buyer. All you need to do is specify how you would like it, and depending on the request, it will be done in anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks....

Thanks indeed for a speedy response!
The three that I know I'll need are one more piston valve and two caprotti poppet valve versions, (which I gather had a sharper exhaust bark than normal ) . I'll compile my needs and get back to you in due course.
Cheers
