Re: Older QSI decoder


the question you are assign is not really related to what is being discussed in this thread.  It woudl have been nice if you started a separate thread with your question.

I also really like QSI decoders and their features,  and woudl not want to replace it with inferior (to me) Tsunami decoder.  Even though I'm in N scale, and QSI never produced N-scale-size sound decoder, I still shoehorn the QSI revolution in the tenders of my N scale steam locos.  The QSI decoders are awesome!

I hope PennsyNut sticks with the QSI, and with the group's help learns more about all the features, and becomes more comfortable with programming them.

I want to replace the QSI decoder in my used BLI Mikado HO301e05 C (2004) with a Tsunami 2, TSU-2200 and a current keeper. BLI no longer supports this model and I don’t know the wiring harness configuration between the tender and engine. Does anyone know which wires are which? Also do I replace the entire board or just part of it?


I tried programming the address using JRMI, but lost the lights and sound and was told by BLI that this decoder is not JMRI compatible. I was able to set it back to factory settings.
