TIPS of all kinds to assist others with Model Railroading!
Have you ever wished there were an easy way to program a long address into a locomotive and that's it?
Confused by all the CV this, Hex that, and Decimal Value? Want to bypass using JMRI? Can't use the programming track because the
sound unit in your locomotive needs a programming booster? We understand. I can't tell you how many times I just wanted to
program the address only for ourselves or friends that visit. So, I set out to make some simple to follow instructions that anyone
can do with a DT400 series throttle.
Now input the desired locomotive address and click Calculate, then follow the instructions.
Programming should be complete and you can acquire the locomotive by the new address.
Now you may ask or wonder about the 34 placed in CV29. This is the most common value for most locomotives needing a 4 digit long address. If you need other things programmed that involve CV29, I suggest using JMRI.

If you came here looking for the JMRI scripts to program DCC Specialties products, the latest version is packaged
with the JMRI software. They can also be found in the files section of the JMRI users group on Yahoo. Scripts included
for programming the Block Watcher, Hare, Wabbit, PSX and PSX-AR. MGB fully supports the JMRI project and encourages everyone to do
the same. What a better world would we have if we all worked together like the JMRI community.
