Hi All,

I have purchased some of the new type class 37 farish/bachmann locos fitted with a 6 pin dcc socket, after fitting a digitrax DZ125-IN decoder and replacing the body the red lights on either end are illuminated as is one set of headcode boxes but after tryin to use the factory setting of 3 to test everything there is no movement in the loco before tryin to give it it's final adress.
Have any of you experienced problems fitting a decoder to these locos and can anyone explain why the lights and no motor reaction from the loco.

Had a second look at the decoder now and inserted the other way up the loco now functions fine, in my inexperience i inerted it as the diagram suggested that came with the instructions for the decoder.

Now have to do the other three from the farish/bachmann dcc class 37 range i have, they are very detailed locos i would reccomend to anyone.
