Forgot to set the DC mode off.

This is what happens when you remove power from the track.

Funny  :P

Quite logical.

When CV29 bit2 is set,
the decoder checks the input for DC-level,
when there is no DCC signal.

As the DC input is zero,
the motor power signal is set to zero accordingly,
and stops the loco.

Hi Paul  :wave:


How are the 'DIY Keep Alive' experiments going ? ...  :brill:

... & of course your  C :cool: :cool: L  layout !  ???



Anyone else got any 'Keep Alive' news or DIY experiments to share ?  L:





Nice work on the DIY camera-mount by the way Doug !  :thumb:  :dt:



Couldn't be simpler ... That particular camera does look darn small & conveniently housed ! 

Looks like a nuclear-waste flask ^^ in among all the Updah logging junkque !  :shocked:  :shades:


Of course ... I like the HO 'Tri-ang' Weltrol conversion to On30 the most !!  :old dude:



:moose: :moose: :moose: :moose: :moose:



:)



Si.

Thanks Si.

I knew it was a Triang Welltrol,
but I can't claim any credit for the conversion to On30,
by splitting, widening and planking the beast.

It was done by a chap who regularly turns these out on ebay,
for between £15 and £20 depending on how many bidders there are,
and I got mine at the cheap end as the only bidder on the day. 

I couldn't have done the job for the price myself and anyway,
not really being a Triang fan - ducks quickly for cover! - I had other fish to fry!
