    Hello I use the NCE Power Cab to read the decoder information of the locos. However, when reading it, it only shows the following parameters: Manufacturer: 11; Version: 255 (examp). So where can I look up these values for more information about decode ? Thanks

    Hello I found that when setting the loco address on Z21 and MRC there is a difference: On Z21, if you want to set the long address > 128, you must reset CV 17, 18 (calculated according to the following link: Calculation of CV settings for 4-digit (long) address ). On MRC it's almost automatic...

  8. HO Scale
    Background info: I've heard of Rapido announcing that their locomotives are not compatible with the MRC 1300 series power packs because they may have a pulse funcion built in. This is because Rapidos trains have small capacitors (and what not) that can be damaged by the voltage spikes. I don't...
