Thanks GN.2-6-8-0 and Trainman203 for the great suggestions!

I recently purchased 2 UP cars at a train show that are in pretty bad shape.  The only thing I can't find are replacement handrails for the ends of the cars.  I've searched online but can only seem to find handrails for engines.  Any ideas on a supplier?  I can probably find something at a Home Depot or Lowes, but would like to find as close to original as I can.

Thanks Jon and the reset did the trick!

Thanks Joe - very much appreciate the advice and I will give it a try.  I thought about doing a reset but wanted to hear from someone with more experience than me.  I have a Digitrax DCS 51 with a DCS 100 booster, and I have several Bachmann SoundValue engines (and other brands too) and besides a Broadway Limited steam engine, I've had no other problems for the past 5 years.  Thanks again and Happy New Year!

Hi Joe - the reset worked great and the engine is running fine again.

I have the PRR version, and today it completely stopped moving, but the sounds all work.  This is the second time it's happened (Bachmann replaced the decoder the first time), and I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem.  If not, what is the compatible decoder so I can install a quality one myself?

Many thanks!

Thanks Hunt!  It was the middle 3 or 4 that I wasn't sure of.

Can someone tell me what effect each of the function keys do?  The quick start guide only lists steam and diesel, but the GG1 is electric.

Thanks for your help!

I recently purchased the UP DCC version and it doesn't seem to go very fast.  I have a Digitrax DCS51 and other engines increase power with no problem.  The 4-4-0 won't increase speed above 3.  I've contacted Bachmann to see if I need to change a CV, but they were really no help.  Is this normal for this engine, or should I send it back?  By the way, I too am experiencing a little wobble.

Thanks for your help!
