I have two Bachmann Spectrum 2-8-0 Consolidations. Both came DCC ready. One is addressed as 61 and the other as 19. After about 2 months of intermittent use, one of them failed to respond.
I have tried reprogramming but the controller is getting no response from the chip.
Today, I stripped it down to check all of the connections. Everything seems OK so I put it back onto the layout. I tried addressing at at 19 and got nothing. I addressed the other loco at 61 and off that went' However, al of a sudden, the faulty one started to move. I shut the throttle down and tried agian.Once more I have nothing happening.
Has anypne any thoughts as to what I might try next and, more interestingly, why it suddenly started even when not addressed.
Any hwlp would be gratefully accepted.
