Hi !

I have a Marklin digital MS # 60657 which I use to run locos confirming to MFX, MM2 and DCC locos. All my current DCC locos are ROCO or PIKO. I am able to register these loco without any issue and also change settings including the names , addresses, functions. The issue however is that I lose all the DCC configuration including the loco registration the moment I switch off the power on my MS2. I have tried repeating this process multiple times but the settings only remain for that session. MS prompts ' NO LOCO' once I power up again.

Any suggestions as to what could be wrong here ? Confused

Thanks ....

Does this only occur with DCC locos? Does the MS2 remember the mfx and MM locos correctly?

The MS2 might have remembered them but not on the display. Have you tried loading locos from the Loco list to see if they are still stored there?

Another thought, I remember reading that the MS2 does not like the loco in the first slot to be a DCC loco. Try registering a mfx loco first in slot 1 before registering DCC locos in the other slots.

Mostly Marklin.Selection of different eras and European railways
Small C track layout, control by MS2, 100+ trains but run 4-5 at a time.

In addition to what Ray states, you might like to get some smart cards to save the loco settings on. The Marklin ones (60135) are quite expensive, but you can source generic ones off the likes of Aliexpress.


Card type you need is AT24C64.

What software version do you have on your MS?

In the old version there were 11 slots on the bottom of the screen for locos, 10 stay there until they are changed by the user and the 11th slot was for a loco on a card. A loco could be loaded in the 11th slot but it would be forgotten once the unit is powered down.
