They just announced 3 versions of big boy 4014 AKA big steam tsunami 2
since i have 4 big boys left to put sound in , i might just change it up a bit
& instead of TCS WOW SOUND i will go with SOUNDTRAXX
if i still have issues with my BLI parlizer 3 BIG BOY i might rip that out too
I have an NCE POWERCAB & notice if i put in an loco say 3943 & 4014 & i toggle back to 3943 it will bring up an obscure address that i havent put in in months
today it was 4020 lol . why doesnt it just go back to the previous address that you entered ??
