The reverse light can be dimmed on the Quantum Revolution hardware
Really? They just found the hardware lying in the woods, and decided
to pick it up and use it?! I mean, seriously. If other manufacturers can
support dimmable lights on all 4-6 function outputs of a $15-20 decoder,
it was obviously a poor decision by your team to only use ONE dimmable
output on a $100 decoder.
I think it's based in a "steam mentality". QSI stuff debuted in steam locos.
You never really think of a steam loco running around the mainline
backwards. (Well, *I* do... because I'm familiar with helper ops...). But a
diesel switcher such as the H10-44, most certainly so! On diesels, there
is no reason for the F/R headlights to be treated any differently.
If you don't like the way the reverse light works on Q1 decoders,I have a better idea..... if I need to spend $100 extra to "upgrade" the
decoder that I spent $100 extra for in the first place... I may as well
give the money to someone else...
