    Chet, enter the lead engine on the right throttle, pushing the knob to change direction. Then add the trailing units using the left throttle, pushing the knob to change direction. The difference between the real world way of MUing and the way Digitrax tells you, is you enter the direction the...

    Work has been progressing on the small-ish N scale layout. We go until we reach a stopping point, then we have to wait until I have time to continue.

    Garry, I think if that traction tire comes off again, I'd just leave it off.
