New Atlas Norfolk Southern SD60E #6920 with ESU Sound

I have to ask for help. There is nothing in the jewel case or on line that tells me which sound file was used in the decoder. I looked at ESU web site but find it less than friendly for a goober such as I; I found an HO file #, would that work? I have not checked this unit yet but I learned that with the KATO installs I needed to download the file from ESU so the sound slots would be identified with info other than a number.

BTW, this is a nice looking loco and according to my supplier, who tested it, said it ran fast like a KATO on DC. Who woulda thunk it!

Carl, try this link
It should be one of these.

But I can’t find one that says it was put in an OEM atlas sd60e specifically.

Thanks Steve,

I looked at the link and out of all those shown the only one I found earlier on my own was the "HO" version 94572, I think.

I loaded the as received decoder file and yuck. The function mapping would be impossible, for me, with only "sound slot #6" as an example. I'll load one of these that you identified and see if it works better. I do not like the way the ditch lights blink, both at same time, but oh well.

Thanks again,
Carl

You can change the ditch lights by putting one of them out of phase in lokprogrammer and probably similar in JMRI

As for which sound file I would suggest S0757, that’s a lok5 file albeit function mapped for an Athearn.

I thought it was mentioned elsewhere that both ditchlight pipes go to the same single LED. I cannot confirm this.

Yep. Have to have separate leds for alternating ditch lights.
