I just got a Bachmann HHP-8 Amtrak Acela engine in Nscale that has working pantographs as well as DCC already installed. The sales info states that the the engine works in both DCC and DC operations - but no where in the info contained in the box did I ready anything on switching from DCC to DC operations. I tried to run it on my DC layout and except for taking a bit higher power setting to get it to move, it seems to run fine. The only thing I've noticed is that it's a rocket - it really moves quickly with only a little power increase from the power pack. Is anyone else operating this engine on a DC only layout? And if you are - did you find a switch that changes it from DCC to DC? I'd hate to ruin this expensive engine and burn out the DCC board. I checked the exploded parts view and didn't see one - and I did find the switch that allows the pantographs to draw the power from overhead lines - but didn't notice a "conversion" switch. Thanks!
