Graham Farish Class 37 Diesel

Not many will tackle DCC sound in N gauge, but YouChoos has managed it to great effect in the Graham Farish Class 37 diesel! Extensive milling of the chassis is required, and careful thought as to where to place everything is essential - not for the faint hearted!

In the past YouChoos has used a CT Elektronik SL75 (or SL76) decoder coupled with CT's excellent sugar-cube speaker, but these days prefers the more robust Zimo MX648, producing plenty of volume, and great smooth running. As well as supporting the factory-fit head/tail lights, we've also fitted bright white cab lights in each end, which are independently controlled on separate DCC functions. Just to finish it off, a driver is placed at end each.

The sounds themselves comprise of a new 3rd generation of YouChoos' Class 37 sounds, bringing extra realism, and more smiles with automatic clagging on hard accelerate, and a variety of other automatic sounds played depending upon engine speed, acceleration/deceleration etc. Up to 16 auxillary sound effects, including numerous horns, can be activated by DCC functions!
