    :cry: I just installed a Lenz 1014 decoder in my Bachmann Spectrum 2-8-0, and it runs backwards in foward and foward in reverse. Someone told me they think there is a CV that will fix the problem. Anyone know how to correct this problem?

    Hi willist, see:
    http://www.dcc.info/standards_rps/rp922.html#_ftnref1 :thumb:

    "Configuration Variable 29 Configurations Supported
    Bit 0 = Locomotive Direction: "0" = normal, "1" = reversed. This bit
    controls the locomotive's forward and backward direction in digital mode
    only. Directional sensitive functions, such as headlights (FL and FR),
    will also be reversed so that they line up with the locomotive’s new
    forward direction. See RP-9.1.1 for more information."

    Don't understand all I know about this, but note that the direction
    is controlled by bit 0 only, don't mess with the other bits without
    reading some more :D :D :D :D :D
