This one piece sound decoder/speaker combination replaces Katos 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, theres no connectors, no wiring, no machining, no dremeling; the easiest decoder installation possible.

Imagine MRCs Brilliance sound thats 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. 

And theres more railroaders who run DC layouts can also enjoy the full capability of the decoder when used with MRCs BlackBox (#0001050) control unit.
