Hi Peter,

I'd see two options - you can either run them as two separate units and consist them together so you can drive them as one, kinda like a double-header for example. This has the advantage of programming on the main being easier since they can be referenced individually.

Alternatively if you program them both with the same address then they'll respond together - I know this is done in many cases for function-only decoders to put lights on the other ends of MU's etc so not sure whether this will work for two traction decoders, but it's worth a shot perhaps.

In theory they'll run essentially identically so they shouldn't need any tuning to make the motors work well together, so stick each one on the programming track, give it the same address and see whether they will now respond simultaneously on the main, if they do then you can probably go with that.

Hope that helps

Matt.
