I had a CAB-1 & BASE-1 that I used for running 5 trains. I had not operated them since mid 2020. Now they are not moving properly and stop with no commands from the remote so I thought that the remote was not working properly since it is at least 15 + years old. I upgraded the base and remote to 1L. Two of the trains work properly but 3 do not. The track voltage is 16 volts every place on the track. I turned off my modem, Roku to eliminate any WiFi interference. The only major changes that happened in the last year are Comcast increase their internet speed and I got new homes on both sides of our home. I think that I must bite the bullet and change channels. Any suggestions before I change the default channel. Louis

Firstly no way that’s a Cab-1L if it’s 15 years old. The original Cab-2 is barely that old. Easy way to tell the difference between then the original Cab-1 and Cab-1L is the original is grey plastic and has a external antenna the new Cab-1L is Blue plastic and no external antenna.

No matter witch one you have easy way to know of the base is getting commands from the remote is anytime a command is sent the red light on the base should blink.

I love the easy solutions.
