Hi Michael  :wave:



Good to see your No.42 'Ward' Athearn SW conversion.  :thumb:

I have seen the photos Posted in several other Threads, but not here ?  ???



Was the M.R.C. 'Loco Genie' you used in your Mogul conversion, the 'Light Steam' version ?  L:


Also, I know you had a 'Bachmann' DCC controller/programmer (I think) ...  :brill:

... can you 'program' sounds & functions etc. on the 'Loco Genie', like a regular DCC decoder ? 



:java: :moose: :dt:



Si.

Si.

MRC has a diesel sound 'Loco Genie',
with prime movers: EMD 567, 645, 645E, 710, ALCO 244 & 539T.

You can do some very basic programming from the hand controller.


You can program the 'Loco Genie':

Not sure if you can program from Bachmann's EZ Command. 
I have one... just not sure where.


I frosted the windows and installed some figures,
to try and hide all the goodies crammed into the cab.

Looking at getting an Athearn S12 for my next 1:35n2 conversion. 
With the high hood, I should be able to get the 'Loco Genie' in under the hood.

Hi Michael  :wave:


Can't find the other photos of your NEW loco No.42 now ?  ???


Except this nice one ...





Your take on 'semi-outdoor' railroadin' is a great inspiration for R.C. trains !  :thumb:

I ran into a problem with the Loco Genie and was hoping someone here might have an answer.

I was trying to program a higher start voltage and now the unit only runs in reverse with no lights, horn or bell.

I can't figure out how to get it back to the default settings.

Any suggestions out there?
