Sleeping on problems is good. On getting up, I realised that because the QSI Atlas has been addressed before by someone else, it probably has had other CV's altered as well. Best to take it all back to default and start over.After running the two, differently decodered Locos in consist, re-adjusting the sound volume via the CV's rather than the little magnetic wand thingy, there's not a lot to pick between them, The Tsunami, I think has a slightly better defined engine beat, but an oddity showed up when trying to consist them. The QSI, according to it's book, has a delaying action when it's first commanded to start moving, which the Tsunami doesn't, although that I know can be created a bit (something I found by accident, but can't really account how it happens, seems to have to do with when some sounds are automatically set-up to start and momentum, maybe more of the latter).
What was observed, was when in uncoupled consist, and it didn't matter if it was Advanced or Simple (Old Style in NCE lingo), the QSI equipped never increased it's acceleration rate hardly at all, while the Tsunami went away from it. This was with the QSI in the lead position. Individually, out of consist, they appeared pretty much equal.
I'm sure this is probably correctable with CV adjustments, but I'm wondering if changing the Tsunami in the P2k Proto GP20 into the Atlas and vice-versa, might be best in the interests of uniformity. I have the other SD35 "Seaboard" that I intend to repaint and number #705 that a Tsunami is intended for, too.
While I'm on a binge, I got some of these too, had good buyer reviews. There were several sellers, this one had the most.
Did the model come with the manual? Or do you have a manual for qsi?Sleeping on problems is good. On getting up, I realised that because the QSI Atlas has been addressed before by someone else, it probably has had other CV's altered as well. Best to take it all back to default and start over.
I eat green bananas for breakfast. They are a good source of potassium and when green, bananas are complex carbohydrates, not as bad for diabetics as simple sugars.Louis- what do you do with green nanners? Do you treat them like you would with plantains?
A lot less sugar and a lot more starch in a plantain, best baked or roasted before eating, although they can be eaten raw. Eating them raw is just like eating a green banana.I eat green bananas for breakfast.

I have no idea what to do with plantains, I've seen them in the store, but I have never tried one.
Did it also come with the magic wand? My Atlas/QSI SD 24's each came with a little magnetic wand that when waved over a certain part of the decoder would reset everything back to factory defaults.Yes, it came with a booklet, which I guess is the manual, has lots of information about programming.
It did, funny looking thing, I remembered that the BLI locos had something similar, didn't realize it was for resetting the decoder though.Did it also come with the magic wand?

It's about to come to an end!Willie- I am honored that you think 3M will be a good name for your mattress factory.
I, too, have trouble deciding on industries and business names.
An associated business you might consider : "Cotton Boll Processing Co."
