Lenz shunting tip.

 

This past year I've been using Lenz silver+ decoders on our MM 141/181 and 071 locos and very pleased with their ultra smooth and quiet motor control. However I only recently discovered Fn 4 effectively toggles a shunting mode which temporarily disables the normal accelaration and braking delays (ie cv3/4). This is really useful for direct instant throttle control when shunting. Function 4 turns this off and on. It has meant I have been able to program quite long accelaration and braking delays but not loose precision when shunting.

A useful feature. The Loksound and Zimo decoder so have the same function, but personally I find the running a bit jerky without any acc/dec delay.

The Loksound has a function which halves the dec value, I find this is good for simulating light engine movements.
