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...
