    One thing that really sticks out to me is the "S" curve you have on the left in the first photo. You need to get rid of that for reliable operation.

    Yes, Atlas has these in code 55 only. In code 80, they only have #4 and #6's. I really think OP is looking at code 80.

    I cannot tell what the problem with your locos are, but Moose2013 may be right and might be something to do with your DCC system.

    I came close to buying a brass PBL/Benchmark Yellowstone 15 or so years ago when they were released. Price was just over $1000 if I remember right. The one I saw in person was more beautiful than Key...

    If this is your first N scale model railroad, I would stick to Peco turnouts and Atlas flex. If you have experience in laying track and want super nice looking track, go with code 55 ME flex and...

    That is not a true statement. As a ex UP steam modeler (with 13 n scale bigboy's), I know that they were not the largest ever built.

    There were at least one class of locomotives that was larger...

    You do know that Kato really doesn't give a $hit about modelers here in the USA or anywhere else other than Japan. They cater to the Japanese market and that's the driving force of what Kato makes....

    I agree.
    Mark's layout is such a work of art, and the only way to improve upon it is to add to it.

    I would get Kato F's and add sound when you can afford it. Both ESU and Soundtraxx have drop in sound decoders for the Kato F's.

    First thing I do is program CV29 to 35 (I think) so that "DC" won't be active. (I've done over 1000 decoder installs a programing)

    Right now I have close to 100 loco's on my layout and not a...

    I'm happy for you.

    I'm guessing you don't have a layout with a lot of locomotives that stay on it. Some duel mode decoders take off every time you power up the layout (in some cases, causes...

    BLI Paragon decoders are crap and have had a lot of problems. I wouldn't buy anything they have, unless they are the only ones making it. Then only, if I could get it DC only.

    Add some thickness to the roof where it would slide inside the walls.

    After watching the video, you did that. Oh, well, maybe make the whole roof a little thicker.

    From what I've read, it's a great system.

    But with that said, if I were to upgrade right now, I would go with Digikeije DR5000. I think it'll do what the ESU will do and more for a lot less...
