This lot is a Dapol N scale Class 142 DMU number 142065. The unit was originally fitted with a standard 18-pin DCC decoder in both cars (in the trailer car it just controls the lights) but the powered vehicle has had the original decoder replaced with an ESU Loksound v5 sound decoder. All the instructions, the original Next18 decoder for the powered car, the blanking plugs and bag of detail parts are all included in the package.
The Loksound decoder has the Legomanbiffo sound project for these units installed. The powered vehicle has been modified to replace the standard Next18 DCC decoder with an ESU Loksound v5 Next18 decoder.
A 25x9mm speaker has been mounted in the roof with a small baffle and is connected to the decoder with a 2-pin plug & socket so that the body shell can be removed (with care), if necessary. The standard lighting plug/socket have also been replaced with a smaller version. In view of the number of visible wires inside these 2 cars I have used'glue dots' to fit a thin strip of black plastic card behind the windows in both cars to improve the look of them. The plastic card can easily be removed if you wish. The final modification has been to install a'stay-alive' capacitor as the power pick-up with so few wheels was a little erratic.If you have any questions then please send me a message and I'll do my best to answer.
