Quick and Dirty Light-It Loco ( 3 output) mode.

To be able to use the three outputs individually you must use the Light-IT in “loco mode”

  1. You do ALL board programming using Programming on the Main – OPS mode programming using the locomotive address. The default address is 3.
  2. The board must be “listening” for commands first so it can be programmed. Meaning you must press the programming button on the board first. You then have 60 seconds to complete the programming.


The board itself will have a loco address. Then the three outputs will be controlled by F0,F1 and F2. Those will be your on / off buttons.


Be sure to read page 5 of the manual carefully a few times and follow the steps 100%. Do not assume anything.


Lighting Effects:

Each output can have a different light effect. Values of 0 – 15 are valid.

CV137 controls the effect for the W/G output.

CV138 controls the Y output.

CV139 controls the R output.



List of lighting effects in DCC operation when using a loco address:

Effect 0 – off (all outputs off)

Effect 1 – Steady on

Effect 2 – Slow flashing

Effect 3 – Fluorescent flicker A, more on than off

Effect 4 – Fluorescent flicker B, more off then on

Effect 5 – Fluorescent flicker C, a definitely dying fluorescent tube

Effect 6 – Single strobe light (every 2 seconds)

Effect 7 – Double strobe light (every 2 seconds)

Effect 8 – Rotary beacon

Effect 9 – RR crossing signal phase A (will not be in sync when used with loco address)

Effect 10 – RR crossing signal phase B (will not be in sync when used with loco address)

Effect 11 – Random on/off (times from 4 seconds to 1 minute)

Effect 12 – Random on/off (times from 4 seconds to 2 minutes)

Effect 13 – Random on/off (times from 8 seconds to 4 minutes)

Effect 14 – Mercury vapor street light coming on (takes about 30 seconds to full brightness)

Effect 15 – Rapid flash
