SRANSW XP / XPT by Auscision Models

Items used:

ESU 58429 LokSound 5 DCC 21-MTC decoder

XPT premium speaker by DCCSound

The first step is to remove the body from the chassis. The skirt of the body is spread outwards and the body lifts off the chassis.

It is recommended to fit two sound decoders, as doing so enables even sound spread along the length of the train. There are two sound projects, one "Leading unit" and one "Trailing unit". The decoders have the same address, so no consisting is required. The leading power car pulls while the trailing car pushes. Change direction and that order is reversed. The horns and lights have all been configured according to the direction of travel.

Please note that some XPT models (that we have seen) come with the motor wires connected in opposite polarity, which may be corrected either by swapping the wires to the M+ & M- tabs on the motherboard, or via software in the decoder.

Decoder and speaker fitted:
