For some reason it appears that most DCC modellers always choose the no.1 end of a double ended locomotive to be the "default forwards" when using DCC - is there a good reason for this, apart from the defaults for DCC ready or factory fitted DCC loco's ?

Personally, about half of my diesel & electric fleet "default forwards" from the no.2 end (which also has the crew), although these are mostly loco's that have been "hard wired". Law of averages dictate that a fair numbers of the prototype are driving from the no.2 end at any time.

Maybe, it's easier to see which way the loco is actually going to go before you move away - not a problem for those whose locos have lights.

Just wondering.
