    Vmin, Vmid, Vmax. I confirmed speed tables was disabled in JMRI, as well as the decoder reset.

    Yea, I got a friend with a Digitrax system, I can go bug him and get him to program in the same values I had. If it still messes up then I'll know it's the decoder.

    Checked all the throttles. Had the same behaviour on each one. AFAIK, on an NCE system, you don't need to "dispatch" or "steal" a locomotive like you do on a Digitrax.. if you dial a locomotive on...

    That's exactly it.. I'm NOT changing from reverse to forward.. the locomotive is just doing it as the speed steps increase. :eek:

    I have one, sans sound. The Intermountain SD40-2s, as Spooks noted, require an extensive break-in period. Like.. significantly higher than any other loco I own. It took mine a couple of weeks of use...

    I like it. Always loved the aesthetics of the high-hood diesels.

    Especially love running them at a show long-hood forward and making some railroad know-it-all's head explode :D

    Since starting my layout I've become a big fan of nscale door layouts. Small, lightweight, can be portable if required, and as you said in this vid you can pack a lot of operational potential into...

    Assuming your layout is all No.6 turnouts, you've got enough feeders. Just be aware that your 3 sidings in the middle and the one at the very top and very bottom will be dead when the turnout is...
