Train-Ca-Teers - All For O and O For All!

 

Got your book but still cant get Acela to pick up on the DCS PREMIUM APP, I followed intructions and had the u wire from 990 to tracks outside rail.  The only thing I didnt try was attaching the U wire to the TIU output black wire going from the TIU To tracks outside rail. I can run the MTH trains off the app and Lionel off the 990 remote at the same time by removing the db9 and ser2 and just using the 1032 cord from tiu to legacy 990 base and I prefer that so I dont get confused anyways.

 

I got the new MTH ALP 46 replacement works great no scratches or dings and pantos work flawlessly. I ran it at the same time as my acela. Thanks again for all your help Barry. You are the man.

Also thinking about adding a toaster aem7 to my layout. Do you own that engine?

Robert,

I followed instructions and had u wire from 990 to tracks outside rail.  The only thing I didn't try was attaching the U wire to the TIU output black wire going from the TIU To tracks outside rail.

Unless your connection to the track from the command base is somehow not getting to the engine, that should make no difference at all.

Are you able to operate any other TMCC or Legacy engines from the app, on the same track as where you run the Acela?

Also thinking about adding a toaster aem7 to my layout. Do you own that engine?

Yes, I do. I have the first PS2 version and it's one of my favorite engines.

Robert,

Yeah, I can utilize my new Sw7 which is Legacy.

Two questions:

  • When you use the app with the Acela, does the LED on the command base blink when you send a command from the app?
  • When you run the Acela from the Cab-2 does it work fine?

If both answers are "yes', the problem is most likely that you gave the Acela a wrong TMCC ID# when you added it to the app.

You were correct I didn’t put in the correct engine ID. Works great.

any ideas on getting more power into the inner loops. The sw7 popped out when it got into the 3rd layer. 

Do I just need to run another track cable to my tiu? 

Think the 180 is enough for this entire layout?
