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 MRC’s BlackBox (#0001050) control unit.
