31  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Re: Hornby DCC Controller-Bachmann HO 64303 F7A Diesel Loco. on: February 10, 2019, 01:11:28 PM
my system use Hornby Elite and Select walk around for control , and I run Bachmann DCC an Sound fitted locos in N scale with no problems . although the Hornby system may not be able to alter some makers CV's .
for instance if running multi loco's , say Bachmann FA units and you want the rear loco to run backwards the Hornby control wont let you - so I set the forward/reverse using a Bachmann EZ DCC  , also you may have fun with MRC decoders CV's.

sorry I don't know about decoders but - as far as I recall inside the Bachmann box (on the end tab ?) you will see a number stamped on - say 180514 this is read backwards and is the date of manufacture of loco or passenger/freight cars - it was made 14-05 (May)-2018

The date code format is YYMMDD
                                    180514  is  05/14/18 or May 14, 2018


yes - now that's my way of making you learn -I do and I understand (ex primary school teacher ).

Spooks how yes the wheels are in gauge.
Plas man thats probably a better idea then trying to machine the flanges off the wheels.
But can you  clarify which set your referring to?  The lead wheelset of each truck or the last wheelset?

I removed the outer set of wheels/axle (coupler end) the gears will not fall out . simply clip the bottom off the truck . I saved the wheels - taped to the inner under side of the plastic packing in the box for future fitting-if needed .
there may be overhang on the corners so you may need long shank coupler either on loco or cars

hope this helps

try Bachmann warranty - worst they can do is tell you to get lost  Grin
Bachmann UK returned mine twice - once to the dealer and then 2nd time to myself and admitted the fault was with the second engine axle/wheel set but could not repair because lack of parts - second time returned with missing valve gear .
it seems Bachmann UK do not honour the warranty .

the Centennial is a DO-DO (0-8-0 ----0-8-0 in steam words) , if you remove the outer axle/wheels on both trucks  and run as a CO-CO (0-6-0 --- 0-6-0 steam terms) it will traverse first radius (9 inch) , you wont loose much traction . you may have to use a long shank coupler Bachmann stockist may still sell them or have old stock .
All three of mine are done this way and work fine .

have a word with Bachmann there should honour the warranty - it could be to your benefit after all it spoilt your Christmas  Sad

45  Discussion Boards / N / Re: how to select the 16 different Airhorns on the DCC diesel loco on: December 14, 2018, 05:36:57 PM
could kevincasey have his loco programed by another DCC controller (club member / hobby shop or friend ) and use these setting's  with the Bachmann EZ or would the EZ  convert back to the factory default ?
thus enable him to save money on a new system ?
