KB568: Acquiring a dispatched locomotive using a UT1 or UT2

This article was last updated on May 8, 2012, 3:10 p.m. | Print Article | Leave Feedback

Dispatching is a special way of offering a locomotive address to a UT1 or UT2 to run. The address is set up and then dispatched to the system to be acquired by the next throttle that presses its ACQUIRE Key. This is not the same as releasing a locomotive address from the system. Releasing an address clears it from the locomotive slot to make room for another locomotive address to be run by the command station.

1. Set the address selector switches to address “99” then press the “ACQ” button.

The Status LED will light green showing that you now have control of the dispatched locomotive.
