Title: blackened RP25 wheels and DCC Decoder for Acela
Post by: JediTev35 on November 25, 2017, 05:43:45 PM
I lost an axle for my Acela train (passenger car), how do I get a replacement? Also, what decoders (no sound needed) works for the Acela units. I want to put one in the dummy engine so the lights swap directions and do whatever else they're supposed to do. Thank you.

You can use a TCS T-1 for both the powered and dummy unit.  You won't be able to program the decoder in the dummy unit on a programming track without a motor so you'll have to program the dummy unit on the mainline.

Go to the Bachmann online store parts section and look for acela parts.  There should be some in stock.

Why not just run wires from the power unit to the light in the dummy, with a plug between the units?
