Thanks to all for your many thoughts on #7433.

Things I tried...

1. Ascertained that it would run on DC

2. Checked CV's 29=38 19=0

3. Compared and changed first 50 cv's to match a clone engine

4. Went back to CV 19, read it = 0, them programmed it =0

And suddenly, I regained control of the engine. Being a glutten for

punishment, after running it around for a while, re-- MU'ed it in

secondary positon with #7434 and ran the consist successfully.

Just for the heck of it, put it back on the program track and read

CV19...which still shows 0 even though she is back in consist.

Sometime you take a WIN even though you don't understand how it

happend!!!

Unless you are using Advanced Consisting, CV19 (The Advanced Consist

Address) is not involved. Digitrax "preferred" method is Universal

Consisting, whereby the command station keeps track of what locos are

consisted to what. A separate consist address is not used.

That would explain why CV19 remains at 0!
