Based on the following note in the Universal Remote manual are/is there any way to change or create a work around for this ?
Locomotives cannot be operated by the Universal Remote if they are already under
control of another remote. To use the Universal Remote, the basic remote that was
included with each LionChief / LionChief Plus locomotive must be turned off.
Similarly, if multiple Universal Remotes are in use, only one Universal Remote
can control a given locomotive.
We, the San Diego 3 Railers, purchased two of the Universal Remotes for use with our "Kid's Club". We had hoped to use them not only as an operational instrument but also as sort of a traffic cop when a youngster might go to fast and not listen to slow it down requests. That is one of the benefits we enjoyed with the CAB1 & CAB1L operations, as long as you knew the engine Id# or the TPC Id# you could make necessary speed adjustments or emergency stops with ease.
