Hi All,

After converting the Bachmann crane and boom set to dcc using a small 2 axle powerbogie from Japan it run ok but i have to get speed up substantially when the wheels grip it is a rocket obviously not correct for a crane, only having power to one axle doesnt help of course but i would like to get it a scale speed when operating, in the flat crane car that accompanies it i have got rid of the metal weight and cut away as much of the chassis as i can to get the bogie to move it.
How can i set the decoder (TCS M1) to give the desired result.

If you command it to run at low speed, do the wheels turn but just not grip the rails? If so the decoder is doing all it can, it sounds like you need more powered axles, or more weight on them, or even traction tyres.
