Just curious about this AN4 in PN colours. Looking at the Auscision website, AN4 is only available in AN green & yellow. The numbers for the PN locos are 5, 7 & 8. Is this an Auscision loco?

It is an Auscision model that has been renumbered

Thanks for that clarification. I thought it had to be an Auscision loco having too much detail and with working lights for it to be a Lloyd's kit.

It's me.

I'll try again.  To get that  AN with sound, what did the owner need to do and buy ???

The loco is from Auscision
The decal I don't know
The decoder is from MRRC in Blacktown
The brand is an ESU select 710
21 pin plug and play $115 +speaker

I'll be doing my AN3 GHAN hopefully this week I'll post pics of the process

You might what to add one of these to your purchase
http://www.mrrc.com.au/general/dcc-solutions/lighting-upgrade.html

I have put one of these in my AN, 422, 82 and 73.
It adds 2 extra lighting functions which lets you seperate the lights.
In my AN I have individual control of the front fog lights, front white markers, front red markers, rear red markers and directional headlights.
Using these on your locos gives you some prototypical light operations.
Easy to install with wire colours to match each loco and takes about 10 mins.
You can contact DCC Solutions for more info.

I'll post some pics tonight when I get home from work of my AN install

Thanks for the info captain that's what I thought the 21 pin decoder did " added more functions on board" . How did it help your 73 did you have to rebuild your front and rear light board ?

An ESU 21-MTC decoder is currently limited to 4 LED outputs (white, yellow, magenta and green). A further two logic level outputs (Aux 3 & 4) are available via the 21 pin socket but they cannot drive LEDs directly. A transistor (BC547 and 4k7 ohm resistor) per output is required. The kit may include these components.

Anzac,

If planning to convert the 73 to DCC, yes some modifications to the light boards need to be done. I have done a fair few of them now and it's time consuming but in the end it's worth it. Separating the lights allows individual control of all marker lights plus directional headlights and number boards.

Check my blog http://coopersridge.blogspot.com.au/ for how to convert the 73 and there is a picture of the wiring mod on the AN to split the lights. I have not done a 'how to' guide for the AN yet but its coming.

Cheers

Captain,
Good blog, instructions are very good. Only disappointment is there was only 1 video. Would have liked to see more, 73 in particular.
Will follow with interest.

Hi Mansfield any tips on how to use your transistor BC547 and the resistor
