AF DCC Questions

One problem fixed. I set up my nce power cab system and it programmed the brake sound successfully. Digitrax failed again. 

 
However I dont know what to do about the sound volume on the one loco.
 
Also I have the blinking cab light off and on because of low current and voltage going to 10v in the track if I run two locos at once. Wiiring, and Digitrax probably contributing. Will set up my power pro system and see if that puts more power on the track. Some people say just to cut the wire in the cab.
 
Will probably rip out the Digitrax and put in Nce with boosters out in the power districts to shorten wire runs instead of in a central location.

A thought about the sound: It may be able to be reset by someone with a Legacy system.  Don't know for sure, just a theory.  Or maybe the speaker is bad.

I would guess the Lionel electronics are somewhat of a power hog.  I've been able to run and program three of these things in consist with no problems with my MRC Prodigy 2 system and 10 amp booster.

Rusty, Lionel after some email pestering sent me an rma number. I noticed you you were looking for the pilot attachment holes. They are not needed as you can back out the two frame to body flat head screws at the back edge of the pilot and replace them with similar longer screws with pan heads and they will immobilize the pilot.

The SD70's have the provisions and hardware for securing the pilot, the ES44's didn't. 

I came up with my own solution.  It involved a little drilling and tapping for a 2-56 screw:
