I've been puttering these things back and forth on my modules using conventional DC and they run fine. It's interesting under DC they run opposite of a conventional DC locomotive. A minor inconvenience.
On an all DC layout, I find that almost a show stopper. If I understand this correctly, it means running two trains on the same loop won’t work without throwing the direction switch for each block before the engine enters it. Man, that’s major! I have to run my Y-3 alone because its conversion to DC (by Flyonel) makes it respond differently and if my Reading MTH F7 ever shows up, it’s going to run alone, too.
These proprietary systems are more than a PITA. I, for one, will be glad when they are gone.
