Hi & welcome to MRF,

If I read your post correctly you are running the Kato unit on a DCC set up on address 0 ?

Unfortunatly, despite what the manufactures say it is really a no no, especially with the smaller motors you get with N-Gauge. Basically they do not like it & suffer from overheating - just briefly listen to the noise an analogue locomotive makes on a DCC powered track - the noise tells you its not happy at all.

You may just be "lucky" with your other analogue locomotives but I would advise against running them on DCC.

Sorry to be negative, but hope this explains at least part of the problem.

So are you saying that all I would need to do is drop in a DCC decoder in the locomotive and all will be well with the world?


Basically, yes - although I'm not too sure about decoder fitting to "N" - hopefully it will be an easy install - what do the instructions say ?
