Thankfully there are some instructions for matching the different smoke outputs to the sound in the LokProgammer. I'm going to need to do some translation work though as they're only in German

Two heating elements and two fans

It's very compact, so will be interesting to see what output it's capable of.

Impressively, both heaters and fans are still controlled via the usual pos, neg, fan and heater harness but there's an additional board which looks to interpret the data from the decoder and route it appropriately.

The cylinder steam control is assigned through some dark magic as specific commands in parts of the 'cylinder blow down' sound slot sequence
