Hi Barry;

DCC ready???  Your model has to be rather old stock, as Bachmann has offered the J as DCC ready for years.  The current model has a Soundtraxx Tsunami sound decoder.  The previous one was DCC equipped, with a copy of a Lenz decoder.

Many models do not store very well, and need some encouragement after long term storage.

I received my Bachmann J last week from Internet Hobbies. DCC ready and looking very good and of course for a UK resident, very big. But it is totally dead. Nothing works, no movement, no lights and no sound at all.

Is this a common feature with the Bachmann Spectrum range or am I unlucky?
