Can get a ps-3 engine to program. NYC Hudson 6621 item 20-3582-1

Hi  Maybe someone can help get this engine working

1.  Turn on transfer on same the engine will light up, whistle,bell and smoke.

2.  Try to program in the hand held Menu engine error,so you can't get in address for the engine

What exactly do you mean in step #1??

Have you tried the recover engine function?

" on Sour mash and cheap wine " ??

Why go back to DCC when I have DCS!

I find your post only somewhat intelligible, however, if you're getting the ENGINE ERROR message, I'd guess that you're using DCS 4.2 or earlier and that you have at least one lashup in your remote.

If so, there's a good chance that you're experiencing a bug that was corrected in DCS 4.30 and later software releases. If that's the case, read on.

Change the DCS ID#'s of any lashups that are present in your remote to some other, unused, DCS ID#. If there's a lashup with the DCS ID# 1, and if the Hudson is a new engine or one that was recently factory reset, change that lashup's DCS ID# first and then try to add the Hudson again.

I ran across this one recently..... I've been  experimenting with giving 2 engines the same ID number and running them together instead oif a lash-up.... Works fine however when I tried to edit the name with both engines on the track with the same ID I got the" engine error message, "something we don't see very often.... unfortunately I  didn't have time to take one of the engines off the track and try the edit name again. next time.
