Reply to "Cab1L Quill Mod"

@BillYo414 I think what john is trying to tell you is it ain’t gonna be that easy. Keep in mind I haven’t and I don’t know if anyone else had cracked open a cab-1L but I’d be willing to suspect it’ll have the same kind of rubber contacts for all the buttons like TV remotes and the cab-1. I don’t know if with that they somehow can quill or if there’s a transducer in there for pressure or what. But the Cab-2 is designed with a sliding potentiometer and the software knows what commands to send per what locomotive is selected. Besides that what you probably hear is the “multi-chime” whistle witch TMCC locomotive have and is still present in legacy if there not receiving TMCC signals. the multi-chime at least I think that’s what it’s called would change the pitch of the whistle depending how short or long it was and how quick you hit it again so wouldn’t hear the same exact pitch all the time. I say TMCC but really RS5 maybe RS4 I don’t know after those. I did get our club some new Cab-1L’s for our new layout and they work very well. If you have the legacy locomotive be sure to set the remote to legacy so you get the full quilling witch is a little touch but not bad
