hold the phone...... more issues. Crap.
This engine draws more than any other MTH engine I've owned with the smoke on and it running. I had to add power drops to fix areas and connected my Z4000 handle to raise the voltage. I need to test more and return with conclusions. I was hitting 4 amps at 18 volts (Lionel PH180s) in poor power areas before.
She sure found any weak areas in my layout wiring and power spread. I only ran 2 laps now but she's smoothed out.
It's around 2.5 to 3 amps at 22 track volts AC in. She's reading 15.8 to 18.x volts at the board now. I thought it might have 2 motors? Nope. Beast.
