MRC-1645 DCC Sound Decoder Drop-In Kato P42-E8-E9 : N Scale : Available

MRC-1645 DCC Sound Decoder Drop-In Kato P42-E8-E9

MRC's revolutionary full function, dual mode N-scale sound decoder gives Kato's P-42 Genesis* locomotive all 28 NMRA functions

This one piece sound decoder/speaker combination replaces Kato's factory installed printed circuit board, by simply removing the loco body, unclipping the factory unit, and dropping in the decoder.

A miracle of N-Scale decoder engineering, there's no connectors, no wiring, no machining, no dremeling; the easiest decoder installation possible.

Imagine MRC's Brilliance sound that's virtually plug-n-play in one of N-scale's smoothest running and most popular locomotives. All 28 NMRA available functions, and your choices of 8 bells & 16 horns will make the P-42 come alive like never before.


But that's not all. This decoder is a dual mode decoder so you get brilliantly synchronized diesel rumble sounds on a DC (powerpack users) layout as well. And there's more railroaders who run DC layouts can also enjoy the full capability of the decoder when used with MRCs' BlackBox (#0001050) control unit.

MRC-1808 DCC Sound Decoder Drop-In Kato SD80-SD90/43MAC : N Scale : Available

MRC is excited to release another breakthrough in N-Scale sound: the 0001810 Dual-Mode, Diesel Sound Decoder for the Kato F40PH.

Taking miniaturization and MRC's industry leading technology to the limit, both of these DCC/DC sound decoders are 100% drop-in! The most simple, straight-forward, N-Scale installation imaginable. Remove the loco body, lift out the factory circuit board and replace with the MRC sound decoder /speaker combo, put the body back on. No wiring needed.

The decoder is equipped with MRC's world renowned Brilliance sound, miniaturized to a single drop-in decoder with included super-fidelity speaker, that's virtually "plug-n-play". MRC's true, live capture, full fidelity sound including diesel rumbles, actually recorded (railside) by MRC's Sound Engineers from real diesel locomotive prime movers. Just imagine all 28 NMRA available functions, and naturally, MRC makes available (33) horns, eight-bells, brakes, air releases, pop valves, cooling fans, coupling sounds and more. Directional lighting is included too to give "life" to your Kato N-Scale locos.

We haven't forgotten power pack users! This MRC decoder is dual-mode so DC railroaders can get brilliantly synchronized diesel rumble sounds on their layout as well. And, DC power pack users can also enjoy the full capability of the 0001808 decoder when coupled to MRC's unique & exclusive BlackBox (#0001050) control unit.
