Bachmann E60CP WILL NOT RUN ON DCC? RUNS FINE ON DC
Posted by RockyMountainRailway on Sunday, May 14, 2017 6:57 PM

Ok so I recently programmed my E60CP to address 0976. I plugged in that number on my Digitrax system but got no response from my locomotive. It previously worked on address 3, and I tried running it on address 3 but still no response. I tried running it on a loop of ez track with standard D.C. and it worked fine...please help me!

 Most likely, it just didn't take the address as expected. Just reporgram the desired address and try again.

Did you cycle track power for a total reset? After six seconds the headlight should flash a numer of times and the loco respond to 3. I have done that a number of times.

Did you change CV29 to accept a four digit address instead of the original two digit address ?

I don't have a programming track and it won't respond to address 3 so I don't know what address to program.

The E60CP is factory equipped with a Bachmann nonsound decoder.  A 1000 Ohm, ¼ Watt resistor laid across the programming track is required to program Bachmann decoder when using either a Digitrax Zephyr (DCS50) or Zephyr Xtra (DCS51).

A couple of times Bachmann reps have said the same in the Bachmann forums which you might consider joining.
