I installed a matching MRC sound decoder (model # 1645) in my 2nd Kato P42 the other night. Each decoder is set up exactly the same, with the same CV adjustments that I made for speed control. The decoders are not consisted, but rather have the same address programmed.

I recently purchased a pair of Kato P42 locomotives to run as the Empire Builder on my new model railroad that is currently under construction. I decided to give the MRC sound decoder a try after lots of research and mixed reviews. The install was fairly straight forward, and so far it is operating well. I took the video camera and captured a few minutes of video to share with others. It was a quick shoot, so I apologize for the low light and the noise from the tripod. I am interested in feedback, so please don't hesitate to post a comment here or email me. Thanks for listening.
