A solid model from Dapol with plenty of scope for DCC sound.
Graham Farish Deltic DP1 Prototype Diesel/Electric
The pre-cursor to the Class 55 Deltic, this is the now well-known DP1 Prototype diesel/electric loco in striking
bright blue. Perhaps not everyone's favourite colour (a little too American?!), but no-one can deny the awesome
presence that this loco had on the line. One seriously noisy brute!
While it is impossible to make you shake off your chair using a 10x15mm 8ohm speaker, YouChoos has recreated
some of the character of this beast using a CT Elektroink SL75/SL76 or Zimo MX648 decoder and the now familiar SugarCube speaker.
Lots of sound effects available including a wide range of those distinctive (but odd!) Deltic horns.
The engine sounds themselves include a lengthy startup and shutdown sequence as well as some rumbling notch-up and
high-speed rev engine noises.
As well as giving control of the factory-fit head/tail lights, YouChoos has added independent cab lights, some cab detailing and crew.
