Day 5 of re-programming and my ELTX RS-11 is "remembering" its ID, #13 Each operation session I am putting it through various operations, the usual stuff, tower com, crew talk, aux 1 (great wolf howling sounds BTW), backwards, forwards, bell (another great sound effect), and so far so good on ID retention.
Yet, from last year to a week ago, the ID was "lost" and necessitated re-programming.
I am 99% positive that I programmed it last year to engine #13, because I likened its engine # to the "Friday the 13th" horror flicks from my youth and it is my usual practice to program a Lionel engine after initial test run.
This is perplexing. I reckon I'll keep playing with it and if it retains memory for more than a month or two, I won't send it back...but the 1-year warranty period is rapidly approaching. For the price of these things, it'd be nice to have a multiple year warranty.
