Speed Matching Basics On DCC Using JMRI Decoder Pro
The bonus video this weekend is one for users of DCC on their model railways running locomotives in a double-headed configuration which is known as a consist. In theory, it’s a simple process but in practice, if the locos aren’t quite matched then you can sometimes find the locos fight each other, with one pulling or pushing more than the other.
