Reply to "New to MTH PS3 DCC"

I have a ZW-C powered by Lionel 180w Powerhouses.  The output of the ZW goes to the input of the 10amp booster and NCE command base.  My Legacy command base is connected to the U post on the A handle.  I have tried the MTH locomotives with and without the Legacy base plugged in.  The engines run as I would expect conventionally.  I have not done a 55-55-55 reset on them yet as I would expect it not needed on brand new never run locomotives.  My one other DCC locomotive I upgraded with a LokSound decoder operates just as I would expect it, so I don't think there is any issue with the DCC command base.  These quirks are not deal breakers, I still think these are wonderful engines, and I'm glad I can buy new DCC O gauge locomotives.  It's just a pity they don't function the way the manual says, that's all.
