Athearn - Genesis RDG GP39-2 #3416...

Another locomotive has been added to the RDG fleet this week.  An Athearn - Genesis RDG GP39-2 #3416.



The Athearn unit has had a LokSound - Select Direct decoder with LokSound Cube Speaker (50321) added.  The OEM Athearn board was completely removed and everything hard wired to the Select-Direct.

The Athearn bulbs have also been removed and replaced with 1.63mm Clear - Acrylic Tube for the headlight lenses and had TCS 3mm "Golden White" LED's fitted.



After installing the Select Direct I decided to play around with the LokProgrammer and alter the Function Mapping.  The idea is to get the most common functions mapped so that fit on the first screen of the WiThrottle app.

Of course to test out the functionality of the changes and get used to the features associated with Full Throttle features on the LokSound, I had to do some switching around Reading - Allied Manufacturing...





Having the Full Throttle features along with Manual Notching, Independent Braking and a host of other features has slowed down the switching to a more prototypical speed and added a whole other level to the fun of switching the layout.
