I have two of the GP35 Ez App locomotives. I did a test and while I had them both running, I turned one to use the steam locomotive sounds and one to the diesel sounds. You can hear both the steam and diesel sounds at the same time. I have previously only ran them both with the diesel sounds (since them are both diesels) and the two sounds both run into each other so it was hard to hear just what was happening (whether it was just one or the other or both at the same time.) This is with the Android App.

I hope this answers your question.

Also, FYI, consisting and the multi-train screens do not work with the Android app, only the iphone app, as I found out to my disappointment. I was sort of expecting consisting not to work, but no multi-train screen stinks. You can just swipe the screen right/left to get to the controls for other engines in the Android app, but it doesn't seem nearly as useful as the multi-train screen would be.

Thanks for the info . I think that Bachmann had problems with these units with disintegrating cast chassis, thei one I had 5 years ago was replaced under warranty, this one they told me to join this group and try to find one.  Looks like I have n upper chassis with motor and a DCC tender for sale

Even though it may technically be too late to post at this point, here's my hopes/predictions for the Announcements.

HO Scale:
-Like everyone else, Stepney, for all of the reasons everyone else stated.

-I'd also like to agree with Cheeky-ULP about seeing the Lynton & Barnstaple vans make it into the range. They could make a normal brown one, one with a face like A Close Shave, and one with graffiti on it like in the Series 4 episode with Duck and Henry. It would be great because it's something different and new!

Narrow Gauge:
-Sir Handel

N Scale:
-Maybe a Milk Tanker, or
-a Percy set? Both?

Large Scale:
-Thomas - LBSC 70
-Red Coaches (these would be great sellers!) I've seen a few people do Stroudley conversions of the HO Scale ones to run with British locomotive's, and I think the same would apply here!

Sensational work. I like the thought process that went into this. Thank you for posting, it has given me some good ideas.

I could be wrong, but it sounds like you have the OLD 2-8-0 from the 80's.  If so, you'll only be able to find parts by getting a spare loco from ebay or something.

Thanks, gents!

I'm definitely going through some contortions in this area. You'd think I'd learn from Sid's lift-out lessons, but I fail to think that far ahead when I'm into the track laying.  Once this little corner is done, I should have a much easier time with the rest of the scenery.

Actually the middle of the layout will have a 2' X 2' slide-out section to help with track cleaning and rescuing a stray boxcar here and there.  Also, I can sneak into the tunnels from under the mountains, if/when necessary.  Still liking Terry's rolling track idea through my crawl space.  Smiley

I found a DH123D on Ebay, will that work?

Jeffrey, you already know that the recession of the late 1950s finished off steam in much the same fashion several years before the end should have come.  I read somewhere that before, the Nickel Plate had planned on the continued use of its 2-8-4ís until at least 1963 and maybe even longer.  Can you imagine how the railfan world would have been.  The NKP would have been mobbed daily.  A lot of those engines would have been only 25 or 30 years old, still in their prime.

The 80ís recession in the same way killed the last of the classic 40í freight cars.

Your wife goes on railroad outings with you?  Man, I have never heard of such a thing. Itís me instead that has to, until recently, go to all the craft shows. 🙄😴. When some fine railroading could be going on.

The 0-6-0 is also a split frame design. I've also done a couple of these using the DZ125. It's the only thing that fits. I removed the smoke unit and put the decoder in the cavity.

The DH123 and 163 are discontinued but upgraded versions are still available. Digitrax has a very orderly system for naming their decoders and once you understand it, you can easily find the upgraded versions.

DH123= Decoder, HO, 1 amp, 2 function, version 3.

DZ125- Decoder, Z scale, 1 amp, 2 function, version 5.

there are often letters in addition to these that denote the wiring harness. One advantage of Digitrax decoders is that the HO decoders utilize a standard JST plug on the decoder itself. They come with your choice of interchangeable wiring harness, for hardwired (Short and long harnesses) and NMRA 8 pin socket. This modular construction means that if you have a decoder go bad you simply unplug it and plug in its replacement, even if the harness is hardwired.

I just check the Digitrax site Both are discontinued if I saw correctly.
Look at the Digitrax Selector page. A 1 amp small decoder with no plug will work.

I have used a DZ125 in a Bachmann loco, 0-6-0, which is upgraded to a DZ126, Good for HO and 1 amp. I just checked.
Order Kapton tape at the same time. Thin and tough. Forget black electrical tape.
