Description Instruction Manual
MRC's N gauge drop-in decoder/speaker combination for Kato's SD40-2 loco replaces Kato's factory installed board by simply removing the factory pc board from the locomotive and dropping in the MRC decoder.

Equipped with MRC's world renowned BrillianceTM sound, and dynamic, super-fidelity speaker (permanently mounted on the decoder board), the locomotive truly comes to life, from startup to shutdown.

From the slowest "creep" to "top-end," experience railroading like never before. MRC's true, live capture, full fidelity sound includes SD40 prime mover diesel rumbles, actually recorded (railside) from the real diesel locomotive, by MRC's Sound Engineers. It's all there... all 28 NMRA available functions, and naturally, MRC provides (16) horns, eightbells, brakes, air releases, pop valves, cooling fans, coupling sounds and more.

DC Power Pack Users aren't left out in the cold! DC power pack users can also enjoy the full capability of the 0001806 decoder when coupled to MRC's BlackBox (#0001050) control unit or Tech 6 line of power packs.
