i'd print this before I go to Eric's but I am no longer mapped to a single printer in our office (!) and I can't do the mapping myself.   :facepalm:

...and some a$$wipes down-voted me for stating my opinion based on personal experience (not just baseless bashing).  Nice!  :RUEffinKiddingMe:   

Come on, I'm just living up to my nickname (and I did say that a cheat-sheet was an excellent idea).

Haha!  Although we will always disagree about Digitrax, wasn't me who down-voted you Peter.  But, you've got enough respect points to absorb a few down-votes anyway...  :)

Cheerio!

Diditrax? YUCK!
But with how complex and non-intuitive that system is, a cheat sheet is actually a superb idea!  Never forget to dispatch an engine when done, or you will fill up themz "slots".  :|


Maybe because you spelled it the way you did.   :?  :D
Don't let this kind of thing anger you Pete.

LOL!  I didn't even notice!  At this point I'll just let it stay the way it is.

I'm not angry - it is more of a rolling-my-eyes reaction that we seem to live in a Facebook-like-world where people instinctively need to use a "like" or "dislike" vote to show their feelings instead of actually posting few sentences reply with some words explaining their feelings. Very impersonal and anonymous.

Peteski -- we love you like a brother -- but it's fun to tweak you with the votes

I know that you guys have fun doing it, so I play along to let you have fun. If I just ignored the gratuitous down-votes you guys would be disappointed.   ;)

I put this together for use during @seusscaboose's ops sessions, but figured you all might be able to use it too.

http://conrail1285.com/dcc-ops-for-engineers-cheat-sheet/



There's a downloadable PDF on the site, too.

I appreciate this and other nonDigitrax asshats may as well, but don't you have to plug in the UT to acquire and "dispatch"?
(Personally I prefer to dispatch my trains and not the throttles) :facepalm:

Thank you Ed for the post.

I printed the pdf and maybe this will help during shows or our fun day running at the club layout.

Thanks again,

Otto is correct. Only the Duplex versions of the throttles allow for acquire and dispatch without plugging in. In my operating group, on a few guys have bought a duplex throttle and transmitter (but haven't activated them on their layouts yet). All are Radio-based and we have to plug in all our UT throttles to acquire and dispatch,
