can protosound 2 boards be transplanted from engine to engine? I have a Mth 2-12-4 that I love. I managed to fry the boards. I have a Hudson that I could care less about. Can the boards be switched. Both are early 2000’s.
Product numbers for these engines?
The 4-8-4 is 20-3080( proposed donee) the donor is 20-3209 a consolidated steam loco
Yes and no. For PS-2 5V and 3V that require flash code boards to get the proper operation of the function, you need a like board. Otherwise yes they can.
You said 2-12-4, now 4-8-4. If you fried a articulate 5V board you need a Special Flash 5V to get the proper chuff. Or go with a PS-2 3V, but you need to change the connectors on the board, speaker and battery. G
Not sure what you mean, so, I’ll ask another way.
if I remove all the boards and replace all the boards from the donor unit, will it work?
Be specific as to the model numbers of the locomotives. 20-3080 is not a valid number.
Assuming that the two engines have a -1 at the end of their numbers, both have PS2 5 volt boards (according to their respective instruction manuals) and neither is an articulated engine. Therefore, the boards can be swapped.
