*** You don't say whether its the newer DCC ready version or the original non dcc ready.

This might help

*** I'm pleased it helped - let us know how well it performs once you've done the installation - they are usually excellent runners.

If you want it to really do well at slower speeds - try CV5 (Vmax) at about 3/4 of its max setting and CV6 (Vmid) at about 1/2 of its maximum setting (Vmid).

ie:

* if the max is 255 on your decoder for those CVs as it often is, then it'd be CV5 at about 190, CV6 at about 120.
* if max for those Cvs is 64 as it can be with some brands, it'd be CV5 at about 48, CV5 at 32.

if you don't like the result, simply reset both to their default which is usually zero (zero = default normally)

These settings will give better slow to mid speed control, and slightly decrease max speed too - On30 is usually not run flat out anyway!
