I haven’t had much time to post on the blog, so here is a quick video about a sound DCC conversion.
The Arriva “Alex” BR223 (Fleischmann N 726007) is a diesel Engine running in Bavaria and towards the Czech republic. The 4-car set (Fleischmann N 814701) was a great addition.
This will be a short post, so here is a summary of the DCC conversion:
- Engine: Removed NEM651 interface, replaced with Next18. Added a Doehler & Haass sound decoder SD-18A. Replaced the original (white only) headlights with white/red LEDs. Also added driver cabin lighting with LEDs.
- Cars: Each with a LED board with integrated decoder WIB-31 from Tams. The LEDs where much too yellow so I replaced them with sunny white LEDs.
