So, I was running my VL GG1 today with my broadway limited cars and all was well. I shut everything down to leave the layout and returned 15 minutes later to start back up again. As soon as I powered the track the GG1 started up, no motion, just RPM sounds. Using the CAB 2 I tried to use crew talk, horn, bell, ect, I got nothing. I turned the speed up and the GG1 started moving, however, no change to the RPM sounds. I shut everything down for a minute, then again, once the power was added to the track the RPM sounds started again.
I took the loco off the track, checked the pickup rollers and made sure all the settings were correct, same issue.
I ran an SD-40 without issue, so I don't think its the legacy base.
