Hi, Gustavo,

I see the lights flashing, but I don't hear anything.

Are the lights also flashing if you just connect a short piece of track with a train to the CS2?
Add the components one by one until the flashing starts. Or remove them one by one until the flashing starts.

I'd start with a piece of track and then add more components.
Regards
Tom

Hi,

It sounds like you might have a transformer issue for your accessories, either the transformer is overloaded or it has degenerated.

Hi,

I do hear the noise.

I think is coming from one of the loco or maybe one of the accessory decoders.

Try disconnecting the decoders, when layout is powered off and see if it disappear and remove the loco from the tracks.

Hi,

Then you will have to follow the ideas from the other guys.
I would do the following
1. Remove one loco at a time to see when the noise stops. When it stops then it is the loco that was removed the last.
2. If all the locos are removed and it still happens then disconnect each decoder one at a time to achieve the same result.
3. If all the decoders are disconnected, then you will have to do the same with all the other items.

Regards
Carsten

Hello Gustavo,

I listened to the video and heard humming noise and noticed that the signal light started to pulse.How many transformers are you using? CS2 has one and then you state external transformer so you are using two?. If you are using one for track and one for accesseries make sure that they are totally separated from each other. If not you will get a humming noise which suggest a power voltage increase or a intermittent short which can cause all sort of mischief. Double check your wiring to make sure you did not connect a wire from one transformer to another transformer by mistake.
