Coming in March, April, May, and June
March—this one should hit the streets any day now so you won’t have long to wait. I’ll be showing a method that I came up with back about 30 years ago for improving performance of locomotives running on CTC16 command control. I call this my poor man’s keep alive, but that’s all I can say about it.
April—I’ve been doing a lot of articles on sound decoders but I never have really spent any time talking about picking a decoder and planning an installation. So in this issue that’s where I’m going. By the way this is the first of three articles on sound decoders.
May—Okay, in the second article in the sound decoder series I will be talking about how to use LokProgrammer and/or DecoderPro to program LokSound decoders. I’ll give you some tips for using these programs in tandem to get the job done, plus I’ll toss in a couple tricks to use for customizing the sounds of your LokSound decoders.
June—finally in June I’ll show you how to install a LokSound decoder in an Atlas FM H-16-44 locomotive. This will be another article on replacing a factory installed decoder only this time in a diesel. We’ll use some of the tips and tricks I covered in the May issue to jazz up the classification lights on this model.
