I am really happy with the running of my AN class. Gave it a really good run straight out of the box & it ran faultlessly & is easily the quietest model I own (running on DC). Kudos to Auscision, loco looks great!!
If memory serves me correctly, the strobes came on when the main horns were sounded. Would be quite difficult to reproduce faithfully in model form as they were (maybe still are) a xenon strobe lamp.
In AN times was rare to see white rear markers on as they were usually coupled up to another loco. A couple of units got the 'driver only' modification to allow all markers to be switched on (couldn't say which ones).
Both of mine have excessive longitudinal play in the rear bogies, when running forward both are unaffected, but when run in reverse the rear bogie is able to move in toward the fuel tank and the resulting vibration is well beyond acceptable. On top of this one of the locos had B end lighting that was entirely DOA, not one LED functions in either direction, not acceptable either.
Replicating the strobing lights is relatively simple if you have the right decoder and two LEDs either isolated or in common anode. From there it's just a blue wire, green wire and purple wire, a CV and function re-map, easy.
