Double head with Locos reversed.

We have been asked to show how to setup a double heading with the first loco going forward and the second in reverse.

Step 1: On the Master Controller enter …. LOCO… 1… LOCO…2.. ENTER R ( Loco 1 and 2 should be your loco numbers)

If the controller says loco not in register then re-enter …LOCO…1 ENTER R and then LOCO…2.. ENTER R. Now go back to step 1.

Step  2: Put LOCO 2 onto the programming track.

Step  3: Press … PRESET… LOCO….29… ENTER R. (this is to read cv 29)

Step  4: Take the answer and add 1 or sub 1, to give an odd number. (this will set the loco to reverse).

Step  5: To reset cv 29 press …PRESET…LOCO…29…PRESET… your answer… ENTER R…ENTER R

Step  6: Put loco 2 back onto your main track set to be the other way round to loco 1.

Step  7: From your main controller call up loco 1 put into gear and open the regulator; the pair should move together.

PLEASE NOTE if you use two different types of loco you may have to balance the other cv to match the pair.

The Video shows a pair pannier tanks working under the above setup.

hope you enjoy.
