Title: Bachmann 2-6-0 w/Sound
Post by: JoMac67 on November 29, 2017, 03:48:12 PM
Ok, I have this Bachmann 2-6-0 train (introduced couple yrs ago) w/Sound.

I want to know if I can temporarily disable the Sound by disabling the wire Harness (I haven't turned the train over to see for myself). I want to do this, because I will have X-Mas music playing, and don't want both the Music and Train Sounds at same time (prefer a silent train going around track).

If you disconnect the wire harness the loco will not operate. Assuming this is a DCC locomotive you need to use a DCC controller to mute the sound - function button 8.

Why donít you set master volume  cv 128 to 0?

Yeah, this is the DCC Unit, but I'm using Bachmann's DC Controller...Ok, so may need to upgrade to the DCC Controller in order to turn down sound.

Thanks again,
Joe

Or find someone in the neighbourhood with DCC who can program your model. ;D

Being able to manipulate CVs opens up a new universe in model railroading . T
