Equipped with ESU "FULL THROTTLE STEAM" features!
MUST use LokProgrammer Version 4.5.1 or newer.
N.S.W.G.R. Class Z27 2705
Responding to user feedback this file uses "Standard North American Function Mapping".
This is a template used for all steam files from ESU LLC.
While we realize most Australian Locomotives do not use Bells or Air Horns they are included in the mapping due to the template used. This is easily changable so the user can set the function mapping work as desired.
The Z27 class (formerly G.1204 class) was a class of steam locomotives built by Hunslet Engine Company for the New South Wales Government Railways of Australia. One example is preserved in #2705 at the New South Wales Rail Transport Museum.
The ESU Full Throttle Steam files now include a few new logic features for added operational realism while still leaving you in control of HOW you wish to run your locomotive.
Heavy Load: F9 by default.
Similar to the “Drive Hold” button on the Full Throttle Diesel files “Heavy Load” allows you to adjust the “Steam Cut Off Valve” at any speed allowing for a fierce full chuff or drifting with snifters and rod clanks. Heavy load can also act as an offset allowing speed adjustments when engaged if desired.
Coast: F4 by default.
Opposite of “Heavy Load” Coast allows for a negative offset allow drifting sounds of Rods and snifter valves at any speed. You again have the option to hold the speed to adjust the speed with this offset active. Even allowing for an increase of speed with no chuffs as if drifting downhill.
Grade Crossing: Sequence. F22 by default.
Allowing 1 button push to play a “pre made” grade crossing cycles with variable lengths and whistle play.
Independent brake: F10 by default
Identical to the Full Throttle Diesel files this is a custom feature created by using logic inside sound slot 11. This allows for the locomotive to stop more quickly than its regular momentum would normally carry it. This one is pretty self-explanatory – just press the brake and come to a stop!
Articulation: Sound Slot 2
By adding Sound Slot 2 to the F8 Function Mapping you can add a second set of drivers making any ESU Steam File articulated.
Function Mappable Air Horn: F21 by default
Sound Slot 21.
Many Steam locomotives had a single chime airhorn equipped. Those modelling SP, MILW, and others can now have this feature and put it where they would like in the function mapping in addition to the whistle.
