Two GP15-1 in action

this weekend I managed to install a Loksound select direct DCC decoder in my second GP 15-1 locomotive.
I also gave it the same LED upgrade as the first one, so both of them now operate with nice bright headlights, smooth running thanks to the excellent motor control of these ESU decoders, and decent sounds.
If anything, the sound of the horn is the only minor criticism I have about the sound project inside these decoders. I know that ESU is working on upgrading the recordings though, so as soon as they become available, I'll upload a new sound project in both locos, which then also will include the correct nose gong sound instead of the current bell.
