Has anyone using DS64's with Atlas Snap switches incurred automatic changing positions on the switch on power up of the platform?

That's probably a question best answered by either Digitrax or Atlas. But I may be wrong Roll Eyes

Nope but I have a Bachmann  DCC decoder equipped #6 crossover that does it. Don't know why? never asked as it only does it on powering up the system.

If you have everything plugged into an outlet strip, and turn it on and off using the strips power switch, you can have wierd problems. When you turn the outlet strip on, there is often a voltage spike that can cause spurious signals from DCC control systems.

In fact, some systems instructions specifically say to power them off seperately and turn them on last, after everything else has been turned on, for that reason.

If at first you don't succeed, throw it in the spare parts box.

I'll have to try that when I get my layout rewired Len, good tip if it works. I'll try to post my findings when I get back to building on the layout.
