Dear All,
Discussion is welcome, but please don't use the site for comparative pricing.
Thanks!

dear Bach man , if you mean my honest review of the new porter , without compairing prices,  you should reed that text again.
It's mostly possitive.
I suppose you mean that text because the thread is missing.

Hi Mr. Bach-Man, hi Ton,
regardless of any price-comparison (which is regularly done here without "punishment" from my experience) I had hoped to get some useful information about headlight dimming on the new sound-equipped Porters in On30. To be honest I had hoped that my question hereto ("dimming headlights") could be answered by the Bach-Man himself. Any chance that might happen?

The dimmer has been moved to F11 as a default.

Sorry to have to say that this is not the case. I have tried it with my Bachmann Dynamis and F11 is without any function on my brand new out of the box Porter 28203, of which I do NOT say where I bought it and at what price. Someone in my separate thread "dimming headlights" gave some CV-values some time ago that might have worked but they were extinguished from this forum who knows why...

Short ps: F11 works dimming headlights on my sound-equipped Shay and Climax but not on the new Porter...

To correct my earlier post - the dimming feature is not set to a factory default. To use F11 to dim headlight requires programming a value of 16 to CV41.

To Alex Wittman ....The new Porters with just DCC are available from many sources including Walthers and many hobby shops in a variety of colour schemes and company names. Ask Santa to bring you one. Merry Christmas.

I sure would like to see a version made where the water tank could be removed off the boiler and use a small 4 wheel tender. Roll Eyes
