    Overheating DC power packs (plural)!

    Some of those old Blue Box GP7s had the old iron ring motors, which were notorious for drawing gobs of power. If you have that setup, it could very well overload a power pack.

    DCC control of MTH Locos

    DCS has the most functions available. You can remap the functions using Decoder Pro so you can access the functions that matter to you using a decent quality DCC system, such as NCE or Digitrax.

    Live loads

    To prevent DCC runaways, simply turn off analog recognition in the decoder. For a long address, that would mean changing CV29 to 34 (NDOT forward) or 35 (NDOT reverse).
