On Lionel TMCC or MTH DCS will the speed control work both command and conventional modes?
I can't speak for the Lionel, but I do have several MTH PS2 engines with speed control. They will hold there speed in either Conventional or Command control.
The Odyssey system works in the conventional mode by setting the speed you want, blowing the horn, and then slightly increasing speed (about a quarter turn on the throttle)while holding the horn button. The engine will stay at the same speed.
Turning the speed control off requires you to put the engine in neutral, blowing the horn while turning voltage up about half throttle, and then letting go of the horn.
Lionel recommends you keep the Odyssey OFF if you want to change speeds- it's obviously designed to work at all speeds in Command mode only.
Separate names with a comma.
