    Here is where I show my total ignorance. A friend has a BLI diesel loco, DCC W/sound. All I know is, it is a long one w/3 axles each end. He said it wasn't running (right?), and said here, take it home and check it.

    Now, all I have is DC. Would this loco run on DC? I can't find how to get the top off, but there would be too many gizmos and Jimcraks in there to do me any good nohow.

    The basic question then is, should it run by touching DC wires to the wheels?

    Thanks

    Lynn, the BLI engines that come with DCC & sound have QSI, they are "smartboards", they will run on DC or DCC it doesnt matter:winki: .

    ??????

    Thanks, Deano. Since it won't twitch at all, something must be wrong or loose on the inside. I can't figure how to get the top off so I'll leave it alone and give it back. I'm afraid to touch it because I can even screw up making a mud pie.

    I think BLI has a very comprehensive warranty. Have your friend send it back to BLI for repairs. If someone tries to take it apart and damages the model it might affect the warranty.
