I reset a K-Line Pennsylvania K-4 Pacific.  I changes the ID of the engine first and got the indication of the headlight flashing and the whistle blowing.  ID is set.  I then reprogrammed the engine using ID = 4.

When first powering the track then initializing the engine the Railsound come alive.  I then start the engine in forward and then it stops activating the commands I send to it like "Change Direction", Whistle, bell, etc.

Any opinions as to where my problems are coming from would be appreciated.

Richard,

tried another hard reset.  It seemed to work then I reset the track power and this time the engine came up with sounds active (a symptom I forgot to mention before) and only reacting again to the first command issued.

I swapped out the boards for both K-4's and the previously bad engine with the good board worked fine after reprogramming. Just to keep everything copistetic I put the bad board back in the original "bad" engine. Just to be sure that I did not go backwards, I put the good engine back on the track and reprogramming it worked fine.  Just for a test I put the bad engine on the track and low and behold it started working as expected.  So all this time it appears that it was a board reseating issue. I had a GG1 that was experiencing like issues and I proceeded to reseat the boards and it is now working as expected.

I thank you Richard and GRJ for all your help.
