Hi

I bought the Farish Deltic prototype at the Ally Pally show in March; and it's a splendid bit of kit.

However, since I converted it to DCC this week, it continues to run splendidly, but the white and red lights at each end no longer operate.  I use Bachmann 6-pin E-Z decoders.

Thought maybe I'd put the chip in upside down, but I hope to avoid levering the shell off the chassis again to check (a very stressful few minutes!).  Or is there something I need to do in the mysterious world of CVs to make the lights work again?

Regards

You will have to turn the lights on.  Depending on your controller, there maybe a button for this (mine has - NCE PowerCab) otherwise try pressing the 0 while running.

Erm, thanks Sith.  There is a little button with a picture of a lighbulb on my handset, never figured out what it does.  Now I know.  Doh!
