Engine in remote

While operating one of my engines just stopped.When I tried to re start it I got engine not on my track, then it went to the remote message. I then deleted it to reinstall but now it’s nowhere to be found.Its dcs and proto 3 and has been operating reliably,trouble free for three years. Sorry I don’t know what version it is.

Turn the power off to the layout and the tiu and let it sit for ten seconds or so then turn it back on and then readd you engine to the remote. It should reinstall itself right  away.

As had been said above use a programming track or make sure there are no other engines on the track your on.  Then try running a "recover engine" then seeing if you can add the engine back to the remote.

Maybe I am wrong again. The fact that the engine just stopped seems to mean to me that it's an engine problem, not a DCS problem.

So if that's correct, why does everyone say to re-add it first?

Is this a steam or diesel?

Why go back to DCC when I have DCS!

Try adding it on a test track with other engines on the track.  If that fails, the engine may have a problem.

 Joe, see above. Not everyone suggests it isn't an engine issue. The adding it in sometimes fixes transient issues, obviously they won't fix a broken engine.
