Trouble with BLY Class J

I can only give you a generic answer, observed when running many DCC
equipped locos on pure DC...when the DC voltage is right on the edge of being
enough for the DCC loco to respond, the kind of behavior you describe is
common. If the stalling/stopping goes away with higher voltage settings,
that's the issue, and it's inherent in running DCC on DC. They simply take
higher voltage to respond.

Has anyone had issues with the HO BLI Class J stalling/stopping when run
on a strictly DC layout? No contact issues are apparent.
