A Reminder about DCC Locomotive Decoder Numbers

posted Jul 10, 2014, 4:17 PM by Bill Rutherford   [ updated Jul 10, 2014, 4:18 PM ]
For those wishing to run their DCC locomotives at the convention, the convention committee has implemented a locomotive numbering scheme that should avoid accidental 'basic consisting' situations.

Your Locomotives' DCC decoders should be numbered to correspond with your convention registration number.  For example, if your registration number is 1043, your locomotive's decoder should be programmed to 1043.

We look forward to seeing you and your locomotives at the convention and hope you understand our need for the scheme which we believe will make the convention a memorable one for everyone.

Note: Some early registrants may have been issued a registration number with leading zeros, i.e. 0nnn. This should have been corrected in a follow up message to be 1nnn.
