    I like the ESU decoders pretty well. I've standardized on using them for NEM651 compatible decoders (like FVM uses). My strongest recommendation would be to program them with either JMRI or ESU's computer interface, as there are a lot of options when programming. The only hiccup - and this is common to all decoders that I have - is that getting momentum standard across different types of decoders is very tricky.

    Well I hoping that without sound that they shouldn't be much more difficult to adjust than other chips.
    I've been using JMRI for the past several years to program with, much easier especially when it comes to speed matching.
    This is where I hope the ESU is somewhat compatible with the others when programming.

    Just got word that my Rock Island SD40-2 is in the mail. Pretty exciting for me since you never really know what's gonna happen when you plunk down an IMRC reservation. But I guess they got enough CRI&P love this time
