I've just bought myself a Select and I've converted my points to DCC. I've a couple of questions. Having also converted my Flying Scotsman (DCC ready) to DCC, the top speed is now nowhere near as it was on DC. Now don't get me wrong - I don't want unrealistic speeds and it is fine for the Scotsman and the 2 shunters I have. I'm just a bit worried that if I buy a 125 HST that it just won't be fast enough. Why does DC allow me to fly around the track but DCC won't?
Secondly I'm having a bit of trouble programming a double header. After I input the 2nd loco's number it just sits there with the flashing red LED. I know it can take a few seconds to program but it can be left for minutes with no change. During this time the 2 locos will jilt forward a few mm every few seconds. However if I press cancel all the way back whilst the LED is flashing red it seems to finish the programming and then the consist will work as normal.
Lastly after I have finished with the consist I can dissolve it, however the number I had my consist on still appears in my "select" list when I cycle through it even though there is nolonger a program on it. How can I stop this? I have locos on 1 and 3 and the consist was on 9. When I cycle it goes 1,3,9,1,3,9. Why is the 9 still in the loop?
