Re: Prodigy Express DCC01

Brian - Thanks I have got it now....... I screwed up first time around and ordered a cable with 1-2-7-8 terminated, when I meant to choose 1-2-3-4.......That’s what I get for multi-tasking but new cable now on order.

Thanks Richard

Yes, but I dont think Gaugemaster sell it? Not sure if Coastal DCC sell longer cables? https://www.coastaldcc.co.uk/index.php They are RJ45 plugs and all 8 pins are connected.

Re: New baseboard top?
