I just got my Tuscan Red N scale Kato GG1 and ran it through its paces. It was a little noisier than my Brunswick Green jobs but after a few hours of break in it was fine. I noticed something, though, that I've seen with a few other engines after converting to DCC - on DCC I can't seem to achieve the same slow speed crawl as when the engine was on DC power. Is this normal? In this case, and I kid you not, on DC the GG1 took 242 seconds to go 1 inch. That's .0375 smph! :tb-shocked: Now I'm not suggesting an engine needs to be run at this speed during normal operations, but when I dropped in the TCS decoder I got abot 1 smph minimum. Don't throw anything at me yet! biggrin: It's really a question of whether decoders can be adjusted any better in the low end. CV2 is set to 0 on the TCS. I tried setting it to 1 (assuming that maybe 0 was not really "minimum" but some default value) and it didn't help. Is this a BEMF thing?
