The new Bachmann G Scale steam locos are equipped with a plug that allows the QSI Quantum Aristo sound decoder to plug right in.
QSI Solutions supports the development of a "common" socket as we feel that it helps the users and encourages compatibility.
The Bachmann locomotives are wired to follow a new "common" socket that QSI, Aristocraft and Bachmann participated in defining. The proposed standard has the inverted light outputs from many but not all Aristocraft locomotives.
If you use a QSI sound decoder with a standard G scale sound file in a Bachmann loco, the engine will go forward while the rear headlight will come on. Vice versa in reverse. We have solved this dilemma by making several sound files specifically for the Bachmann locomotives. They are:
- 3017-520 - Bachmann Forney 2-4-4
- 3017-552 - Bachmann K27 2-8-2
- 4004-749 - Bachmann 2-6-6-2 Logger
