Howdy guys, there is a real procedure for "firing up" an r/c locomotive (or any other r/c device)
and that is to turn on the transmitter FIRST and then the loco, turn the loco OFF then the transmitter.
I have made that mistake time and again and almost all the time when I turned on the loco first, it would "take off" without any control.
Now, there may be some other reason for Bernd's control situation but this is just MY experience.
I was warned by r/c flyers and car racers long ago to switch on the Xmitter first and off last.
It works every time (for me).

Woodie

BTW Rick, if you don't wire up a layout to begin with then you might "get the drift" faster.
Necessity is the Frank Zappa of invention...or something like that.
