Hello everybody,
I have taken the plunge and gone DCC using the Prodigy Express system. I have chipped all my dcc ready locos (all diesel) with most conversions running successfully apart from a ViTrains class 47 with 8 pin bachmann decoder that will only run on default
setting 3 although acceleration/ deceleration etc works normally. My local model shop lent me a spare Hornby decoder to try but this is exactly the same, it will not accept address 0844 even though it shows on the handset. To add to that today I took delivery of the new Bachmann class 158 with the recommended plux22 21pin decoder. This again will only run on default 3 with other functions working, although loco number does show on handset but nothing works not even the directional lights. What could I be doing wrong as my first 5 locos including 2 dmu's are running perfectly. Programming track has been cleaned again with no change. I can put up with one loco running on default but two is impossible.
Thank in anticipation.

If everything is going smoothly, you have obviously overlooked something!

Cheers Alan
