older posts that I was using the Fleischmann Lok-Boss 6865 for some operations. This is a small DCC controller that came with the Fleischmann 89397 digital 'start set of the year' (which also included a Class 64 steam engine that has been nothing but problems, but that is another story....). I no longer use this controller (I bought and use a second Trix Mobile Station) but I do have the manual, which I scanned and formatted into a pdf file. As the commenter noted, the information or manual for the 6865 Lok-Boss does not appear to be anywhere online....Google search does not show anything! So hopefully others who own this controller and don't have the manual can benefit from my sharing of this document as well (and hopefully I'm not breaking any copyright laws in the process!).
The pdf for the English version of this manual is located at this site: Quinntopia Library - Lok-Boss Manual
I'm using "Google Sites" to host / post the .pdf file as Google's Blogger service doesn't allow me to post a .pdf file. I think I've set up all the settings correctly so that anyone can access the site and download the pdf, if not, please feel free to leave me a comment.
Also, I only scanned the English pages of the Lok-Boss instruction manual, if you need or want the German or French versions, let me know and I can scan those as well.
On the topic of Fleischmann and digital controllers and looking at the end of 2009, it certainly was a turbulent year for nearly all the 'big' German N Scale manufacturers....The Marklin/Trix/Minitrix (and LGB) company is somewhere in their insolvency or bankruptcy process, while both Fleischmann and Roco have 'merged' to apparently address their own financial difficulties. The future is still uncertain to me as to the future of the Minitrix brand and what products, if any, we will see from this company. It certainly seems as if we won't see the proposed but not released new and improved Trix Mobile Stations (same appearance as the above Marklin version, but with green instead of red dials and markings). Key features with this are not only the design, but the wireless radio ability! Let's also hope that they've streamlined the UI and improved some of read/write abilities over the current mobile station (if this ever gets produced).
reviews and testimonials from people who use this system) which is apparently now being released under the Fleischmann brand, so perhaps a reason for the missing documentation on the Lok-Boss itself, and maybe a good thing.
By the way, this post and the replies is a great overview/discussion of various DCC systems, covering some of the less well-known versions.
