HO Walthers F7 Tsunami Functions & JMRI
« on: February 26, 2019, 05:17:30 AM »
Hi All,

I’m fitting some Précis uncouplers to several Walthers F7s with Tsunami sound decoders.  And I picked up something interesting.

The instruction sheet in the box lists 10 F key Functions.

F5 turns on strobe headlight and F6 turns on number board lights, great.

However, looking at the locomotive and decoder, there are more wires attached to the light connector.  And low and behold F11 turns on the beacon on top.

Reading with JMRI I on the function map I get this.

So as normal headlight are on FX1 & FX2.  F5 is FX5 and F6 is FX6.

But in the JMRI Lighting Tab I can see FX5B and FX6B.  FX5B is clearly controlled by F11 but where is that set.

But as FX5B and FX6B are not in the functions tab, how can I get access to FX6B?

I assume, as this is factory fitted Tsunami in the Walters F7, I should be selecting ‘Tsunami Desisel Walthers OEM’ in JMRI?

Many thanks,  James
