Train Not Running on NCE Power Cab

Peter writes:

“I have just added an NCE Smart Booster to my HO scale NCE Power Cab controlled System. It has greatly improve the speed of 5 of my DCC locos. The other two locos have whistle, bell and operating sound when I put in their address and placed on the track but do not move when I move the speed wheel. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.”

    If five of your seven locos work I wold suspect that the issue is with the two locos and not with the DCC setup. My first inclination would be to do a full reset on the two loco’s decoders and reconfigure them from the beginning.

    Hi Dale, Thanks for your suggestion of the Decoder reset. It worked on both engines!!! I now have two more fully working engines.
