These are two different locos and chips, the first is a Locsound L fitted into the Bachmann 2-8-0 and the second a soundtrax Tsunami 2 fitted to a Bachmann 2-4-4-2. Both of these are still being worked on and run well, and the 2-8-0 will have the motor overload protection on when complete.
I've only ever programmed with the JMRI setup so not taken much notice of the cv numbers.
One thing worth pointing out is you can't always use the same settings in the same types of locos, I've found that some variations exist on the same locos, some motors run differently, might be a bit of stiffness in the drive etc.
I've done a lot of programming for customers in the past and JMRI makes it straightforward once you understand the program. It does take a bit of time to get them running well and would point out always save the settings and keep a backup copy on a USB.




Thanks Simon. Trying these values will have to wait on me buying a SROG because I can only access CVs with my current setup.
