LGB steam engine problems dcc
Posted by passh2o on Sunday, April 13, 2008 7:33 PM

Hello all;

 I have a LGB steam engine that I bought last season and it ran fine all year. This year I put on the tracks to go for a run and it won't move forward or backwards. Ether as a dcc address engine or with a address of 00.  I run a super chief digitrax system and my other engines run fine so any help with be great.

 

Thanks

First thought:  Check for dirty or corroded wheels, and clean them.

Second:  Make sure you're trying to run it on the correct address.

Third:  The decoder may have lost its address.  Reset or reprogram and try again.
