American Flyer Legacy

Expecting to add the now canceled Legacy AF Berkshire, and owning a Central of Georgia ES44AC, UP Challenger, and some AF TMCC steamers, I recently bought a Legacy #990 set.  This is my first venture into command control systems so bear with me as I am a total novice. I updated the base to V 1.60 and CAB 2 hand unit to V 1.61. Since the ES44AC did not have an Orange module I added it as Engine 81 manually using the CAB 2 handheld controller.  I added it as a Flyer Pulmore Diesel with Legacy and Legacy Railsounds.  I guessed at these settings, can someone comment on my choices?  Today I ran the ES44AC around an oval of track. Good fun experimenting... but I kept somehow turning off the ditch and headlights.  Only got them back by hitting the Circle R  reset button.  It would appear that only about half of the icon function buttons actually work with this engine.  The ones that respond are the same as those shown in the manual drawing page 16  (which shows many panels blank).  Does that sound right?  Is there a "Start up" button like the O gauge models have for sounds?   I really enjoyed the AUX1 three second hold that triggers the Automatic  Sequence!  Thanks for any advice on my CAB 2 manual setup.

I have 2 of the AF Legacy ES44AC and they operate exactly the same as an O gauge Legacy engine.  Select the engine number, press info, and scroll through to make the selections.  I set mine as :  DSL, LEG, LRS.  I get all 15 keys.  Where are you finding the option "Flyer Pullmor Diesel"?  Those engines don't have Pullmor motors.

You have the right settings, but if you are not seeing the on and off soft keys after entering the engine number, then something is wrong.

Chuck, I can see all the segments have icons in them, but at first it seemed all of the extra ones not shown on page 16 of the manual did not function. I have continued operating and I believe now that they are working, in some cases I was just not sure what some of the icons did.  I am getting better at this.  Thank you.

I finally found the "Flyer Pullmor Diesel" option.  Doesn't appear to do anything different than the normal DSL default setting.  I see the same 15 keys in the FPD option.

Yes, it's FPD.  I did try the DSL label also and had not found anything different so I switched it back to FPD.
