I have been all through that. Though I was not aware of the six second time frame on programming CV29.
I will check up on that one. I might have waited too long figuring out what I was supposed to do.
I have a programming track set up. That really isn't an issue right now. I have only one locomotive with a decoder in it, out of 23. Obviously, I want to get all the bugs worked out on this one before tackling all the others. Few of the remaining locomotives are DCC ready, so I will be getting into the modifications necessary to convert non-DCC ready locomotives to DCC.
I used DCC on my previous On30 layout. All those locomotives had the decoders installed by Bachmann. I only used two-digit programming because all the locomotives had two-digit road numbers.
I woke up at 2:00AM this morning wondering if I had restored track power after programming. I think I did. I obviously did when I used the two-digit programming. Its a sure thing the loco is not going far without track power.
I am a bit frustrated that Digitrax changes other characteristics when an address change is made. Obviously, when I programmed the decoder to address 40, the power curve changed, as did the control scheme for the lights. The changes work fine, but I would like to be the one who makes them.
Thanks for the help.
