  • The continuing mystery of my O gauge Weaver U25B

    Hi all, I'm continuing my questions from the topic from the crew lounge about my first O gauge loco:

    I just got my first O gauge loco (Weaver U25B) yesterday. I have a few questions about it.

    I thought it had sound, but upon pulling the shell off, there was no speaker. There was no speaker in the fuel tank either although that looks like where it would go. There was a QSI chip under the hood though. It has the QSI logo on the box also. But what do I need to do? Just wire a speaker to the chip?

    Thanks,
    Cody

    Try it. Speakers are cheap. And you'll need one anyway even if it isn't sound equipped currently

      How can I wire it to the chip? I can take some pics of the so called "chip" that way someone can verify whether or not it's sound equipped.

        Well, here are some various pics of the loco.....

        Here is the receipt from the telethon:



        Here is the telethon label on the end of the box before I peeled it off:



        Here is what was underneath the Telethon label:



        The engine overview:



        The fuel tank looks like a speaker would go in there:

        I pulled half the fuel tank off and there isn't a speaker in there.:

        I pulled the shell off and there is no speaker there either, but there is (what looks like a QSI chip) in there:

        Here is a close up of what I think is a chip:



        FYI, this is on the box:

        Hope this helps determine whether or not it is sound equipped and/or has a QSI chip in it or not.

        Thanks,
        Cody

          Cody,

          Your best bet is to contact QCM customer service.

            My suggestion for any questions on 2 or 3 rail 0 gauge related would be visit the OGR forum at http://ogrforum.ogaugerr.com. If the guys on that forum can't answer your questions, nobody can. Owners and department heads of all major 0 gauge manufacturers regularly visit that site along with owners of many hobby shops and 0 gauge repair people. It's the ultimate go-to source of 0 gauge information.
