Re: DCC locomotives won't run

Mark, The Prodigy Express, as sold with the Express throttle, is not able to read CVs, set routes, use fast clock, use accessory decoder functions or set a universal consist.
Adding a Prodigy Advance throttle enables all the above mentioned features, making it basically an Advance system except for the 1.6 Amp current rating.
Reading CVs (with Advance throttle) requires a program track booster.

The product is advertised as being able to do reads on the Programming Track and I have not seen much discussion about not able to read on the MRC-DCC forum that specifically points to the express command station.
Are you saying you cannot read ANY decoder or just some decoders?
There are lots of reasons why a given command station cannot read a decoder especially if they are sound decoders.
