    Just spotted I was having a dim moment when posting the original question, its a class 122 not 121, not that makes much difference to the problem

    Just by way of a little update on this issue, I noticed today whilst fitting one of your overbright lightbars that the headcode LED's are bright enough to be seen through the headcode box when it is moving in reverse, and goes dim when forward is selected, also had to change the decoder from a Zimo MX622N to a Bachmann DCC23 otherwise the lid wouldn't go back on with the lightbar in place and that made no difference, so it's not the decoder.

    Very dim, I can only see they are on with the loco top removed, once the top is on, even in a dark room the headcode cannot be seen, the headlight LED's are fine though.

    Hello Jeanette-H ,

    I've spoken to a couple of people who have said that their headcode lights are also dim.

    Whether that's the way it is or not I am not sure. A few YoutUbe videos seem to suggest the same.

    Hope this helps??

    Cheers!
    JB

    I don't own any Dapol Class 121/122 myself. But I have a few friends who do. I'll ask them and get back to you ASAP.... Hang in there!

    Cheers!

    Dapol Class 121 Head Code Lights

    Hi all

    I have just taken delivery of a new Dapol Class 121 and have something I want to check

    I have found the head code LED's although on are quite dim and do not show once the roof is clipped back on, even with all the room lights off, is this normal for this model, not a problem if it is but just wanted to check.

    Thanks
