FYI when USB interface is used with a SB3, SB3a or SB5

Remember that the SB5 does NOT have any service mode programming (aka program track mode). This means that you can only do ops mode programming (aka programming on the main- no read back) or run trains via Panel Pro with JMRI.

If your goal is to use JMRI to program decoders you will need to use the Powercab in the original Powercab "stand alone" configuration with the powercab panel and original power supply.
