Con-Cor N Aerotrain.

I have a Con-Cor N Aerotrain.  I use a Zephyr in my shop for test runs and programming.  Zephyr working fine.  Aeotrain with dummy 8 pin plug runs fine on address 00.

I installed DZ123PS per Digitrax Decoder Selector- this is one option shown.  On address 03 all coach lights work but no motor control--that is the motor is silent. Zip. Nada.

Anybody installed DCC in the Aerotrain?

Any tips?

Thanks,
Roger
Best regards,

Roger

I have but haven't had the darn thing out of the box in over 2 years.  Don't remember the decoder I installed but I remember that the body would not sit right after installng it.  Lights worked and it ran fine otherwise.

I confirmed that I have two working DZ123PS decoders by popping them in another loco.  On the Aerotrain I did notice that the decoder did reverse the red and white lights when the direction switch was thrown but still no joy re: the motor.  Con-Cor is sending a replacement mother board.  Hope to have it next week.
Best regards,

Roger
