Kato N Scale MP36PH Sound and Lighting installation Package (loco not included)

Many fans of the MP36PH diesel have been requesting a sound package for the Kato N Scale model.  When the loco came out in 2012 we posted a video of our prototype installation.  To do the loco right it must have a full lighting upgrade along with the use of the LokSound Micro ver 4 sound decoder.  To follow the prototype we also installed the TCS FL4 function decoder to handle the additional front mars light, red reversing lights and rotating beacon (I like the effect of the rotary over the strobe).  The install requires a significant amout of time reworking the interior light guides and modifying the frame to accept the decoders.  Take a look at our video page to see the results.  

So if you have one of these locos and would like a professional sound and custom lighting installation we are your choice.


DCC Sound and Lighting installation:

Here is what we do:

Dissemble loco
Modify stock circuit board
Mill Frame to accept LokSound speakers
Hard wire LokSound Micro decoder to stock light board
Install LokSound speakers in fuel tank
Custom wire headlight and custom install the rear light
Modify ditch lights
Custom wire in 2 SM LEDs for the flashing ditch lights (DCC controlled)
Hard wire in TCS FL4 Function decoder for additional lighting features
Load custom programming and sound project to decoder
Each loco is tested for all functions and operation running forward and back over turnout and hills


LokSound V4.0 decoders help many H0 model railroaders to operate their locos with realistic sounds, something that friends of the smaller N and TT gauges don´t need to do without. We even once more reduced the new LokSound micro V4.0 decoder´s dimensions compared to its forerunner. With a size of only 25mm x 10.6mm x 3.8mm it is the world´s smallest LokSound decoder!

Since there are also no more mechanical obstacles in the way, it is a pleasure to enjoy all the decoder´s features: the LokSound micro V4.0 incorporates a complete digital decoder, which, besides DCC and Motorola®, also understands Selectrix®. Beside the two light outputs we were even able to integrate a sound-section, equal to that of its bigger brothers and two user selectable function outputs.
