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.
