Diesel Version 5:Momentum Function
The momentum function is a quick and easy way to change the momentum of the decoder. There are two modes present that are toggled with every press of the momentum function (Function 15 by default) "Switching Momentum" and "Mainline momentum" When the Momentum button is pressed the decoder will announce what momentum mode it is in.
Mainline momentum is the default mode. In mainline momentum the engine will accelerate and decelerate slowly as if it was a prototype train on the mainline.
This also give more realistic operation when used together with the brake feature.
CV 135 acceleration and CV 136 deceleration control what momentum values are used when in switching momentum
When in switching momentum mode the engine will operate as if it was a switching locomotive, stopping and starting quickly with little momentum. This is useful when using the locomotive as a switcher or when inexperienced operators are running your trains and you don't want them to crash them. Some WOWSound users also find it fun to set the speed and use just the brake feature. and directional button to control the engine while switching, something to try next time your shunting some cars.
