Is there a DCS setting somewhere that disables the directional controlled head/tail lights and just sets them to 'always on'?
I ask because my Railking SW-8 switcher with PS-3 doesn't have cab lights and the only lighting on the unit is the one headlight and one taillight. I'd like to be able to have a lighted cab interior if possible, so as far as I see my options are to either wire-in led cab lights to the PS-3 board's empty cab light slot (sounds difficult and I'm nervous about doing it), or use the already existing tail light for providing illumination in the cab.
When on, the tail light provides a decent amount of light to the entire can interior, so it would certainly be a suitable alternative. The problem with this, of course, is that the tail light is only on when the engine is in reverse. Which brings me back to my initial question.
If it's not possible, I suppose I'll have to go the route of wiring in new lights.
