Someone said its on the ac9 also?  I have to test mine...  still running that as engine 1!

Well, regarding the AC9, I have been following this thread and being thankful I did not order any Alcos but I have not seen a reference here to the AC9s having an ID issue. HOWEVER, I have two and one of them will not take a change in the engine number from 1 so I have run it as that ever since. Figured it was a RUN/PGM switch issue but have not had time to have a look at it.

In my case, the engine just does not respond to being put in PGM mode and having a new ID set. 

This may or may not be the same thing as the board issues referred to above. But it is very annoying as I waited until AFTER these BTO engines were issued and got favorable reports on this forum before I got them.

BTW, my other AC9 has no slow speed control although every other feature works. That one's not going back to Lionel  but to an independent service tech. 

I have two legacy AC9's.  I just tested both.  3805 and 3811.  Both work perfect.  I have had the 3805 for about a year?  Since it came out.  Its seen alot of action on my layout.  Its kept its number 5.  The daylight 3811, i just got last month.  I just test programmed it to number 11 and it holds its number.  These are great engines...
