Chief cook & bottle washer
Hello all. I've asked on rmweb without too much luck, so thought I'd see if any dcc experts on here have got any ideas. My T9 was delivered last friday, and after making sure it ran on DC I put in a brand new Lenz Silver Mini. I switched to programming track (dpdt switch), read back the address, which was 3 as expected, then switched back to the main power, put in No 3 (Lenz LH 100), and nothing. To cut a long story a bit short, I then tried the same thing with 3 brand new Lenz Gold decoders, with exactly the same result. I tried the 4 Lenz's in another Loco' and they worked perfectly. I then found an old TCS M1 that I've had laying about for a few years, and it worked. The motor control is something that I just can't get as smooth as Lenz straight out of the box, no matter how hard I try, so I prefer to use the Lenz kit. Can anyone shed any light on this for me, cos it's driving me nuts. After checking the Loco' electrically and finding no problem, I just can't understand why this is happening. The track and wheels / pickups are all clean. I've chipped about 30 Loco's, including hard wiring and split chassis, so I'm no novice. Please help if you can.
