Poor running dcc

Capacitors perhaps?
If it's run in Ok on DC, then hesitant on DCC it might need the capacitor snipping out.
If not, then cv54/55 adjustments for best running.
Assuming all else is clean.

Hi All,
Do any of you actually use this software on your layout? The reason I ask is that I have just purchased an interface cable from the US for 28.
A good deal less than the UK RRP. So thought...

If you have plastic wheeled stock and locos with traction tyres, like I did on my old stuff. You might find like me that it is worth re wheeling the stock and locos.

Not much to be honest!

Just serviced my Mainline Manor and resoldered the connections onto the motor/brush retainers.
I do like my old stuff but wish they ran like the new 57x I have!
