I believe that would work for me also (maybe) maximum of 14 engines on the layout with maximum of 6 addresses in use at any one time. Will have to do a lot more research though to make sure it's feasible.Is that 6 engines operating at one time
True, if you don't know what you're doing. I've had two trains with 3 addresses running simultaneously before. One of the trains had the Walthers rotary snowplow on the front; it had it's own decoder so I can vary the speed of the cutter. The two locos pushing it were consisted, and the second train was the freight that was going to follow.JeffShultz said:So basically you can run one set of trains at a time... unless you can get one set running, and they'll keep running after you change the address on the controller?
Sounds like a prescription for disaster...
