I am trying to program the Acela engines that I bought at York. I am using the legacy base with the cab 2 remote and a programming track. I am trying to program each individual engine as a unit so that I can run them as a train in conjunction with the sound dinner car. Engine 2021 programmed fine as engine ID # 21 into the base and it came up as Acela and I got all of the appropriate icons . I programmed Engine 2024 as engine 24 but when I run it over the programming track it just reads Cab 1 mode. It also starts up in reverse. It doesn’t recognize it as Acela or give it the appropriate icons. I have the unit/pair switch as unit and I have the blue tooth off. What am I missing? I admit that I am a little fuzzy on the pair engine systems so maybe I should program these under pair mode instead of unit mode . I don’t necessarily need to run the set as a train if its easier to run it in just the pair mode.
