Summary: Speed matching isn't difficult. This video demonstrates the process using N Scale locomotives.


Do you want to set up your model train locomotives to play nice with each other while running on DCC? In this episode Dan explains his techniques for speed matching, so that locomotives can run together harmoniously. Speed matched locomotives are calibrated to run at the same speed at any given throttle setting. Dan uses N scale locomotives as examples in this one, but the techniques apply to other scales as well.

In addition to speed matching, Dan gives a brief rundown of DCC programming, and takes a stab at explaining CV29. If you're into DCC model trains then you won't want to miss this one!
