I have been checking out some equipment I inherited on my brothers death. My NYC E-7 A units built around December 2011 are both powered and had 9 volt alkaline batteries. I replaced both batteries with BCRs and put them on a test track with conventional hookup to Z-4000 transformer. I do not have TMCC or Legacy. I turned off smoke and set prgm-run to run
How do I get 1 A unit to start in reverse to accommodate an AA back to back arrangement
When I run them alone one unit squeals a lot and both units seam sluggish maybe only a max of 30 mph in scale.
And if it is possible can these units be converted to DCS P-2 or P-3 and who would you recommend.
A big thanks to this Forum I would have given up on O trains by now if not for SEARCH and reading most topics. In particular a big thanks to Dave Detert, he gave me a whole lot of effort and time. Soon I will post the layout he has helped me with.
