Hi Dan, I have not been able to find that post yet but I will continue to look for it.
In the meantime I found this in my files:
What decoders should be used with the LGB 22194 SP Mogul Steam Loco, Vanderbilt Tender, Sound?
To use this model with the LGB Multi-Train System, both engine and tender have to be equipped with decoders.
The engine is equipped with a DCC interface to connect a decoder. Remove the plug on the decoder interface and connect the decoder. We recommend the 55027 MTS Loco Decoder III. Its plug fits directly onto the socket of the interface.
- The plug of the decoder fits only in one direction onto the pins on the loco circuit board.
- If the decoder is removed, the original plug must be replaced on the DCC interface. Otherwise, the loco will not work.
- The power control switch does not work when a decoder is installed.
The tender has a direct decoder interface. For Multi-Train System operation, it can be equipped with an LGB MTS Decoder (LGB 55021). The MTS Decoder Interface Cable (LGB 55026) is not required.
Hint: If this model is equipped with decoders, the digital/analog DIP switches on the tender circuit board must be set to OFF. The DIP switches should remain in this setting, even if the model is used on an analog layout.
How do I synchronize the sounds on my decoder-equipped 22194 locomotive?
To use this model with the LGB Multi-Train System, both the engine and tender have to be equipped with decoders. (See FAQ 1243 for details.) Then, for the best sound synchronization, we recommend that the decoder CVs be reprogrammed to these values:
Tender Decoder (55021)
CV2 = 25
CV3 = 1
CV4 = 1
Engine Decoder (55027)
CV2 = 2
CV3 = 10
CV4 = 12
The tender decoder requires the load of the engine in order to reliably accept programming. To do this:
- Place the engine and tender on the programming track or connect the programming wires to the shoes of the engine.
- Connect the engine to the tender
- Place the engine cab switch in the number 3 (sound on) position, so that the sound tender decoder will accept programming information
- Reprogram the CV`s listed under “Tender Decoder” only. The tender decoder is now programmed correctly.
- Now, place the cab switch in the number 2, 1, or 0 (sound off) position, so that the sound tender decoder will not accept programming information, but the engine decoder will accept programming information
- Reprogram the CV`s listed under “Engine Decoder” only. The engine decoder is now programmed correctly.
