Kato P42 w/ MRC Sound (x2)

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.

Kato P42 w/ MRC Sound

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.
