Frequently Asked Questions:
can accept a GoPack?
HO Scale Paragon2 and Paragon3 (Revision
E and lower Paragon3 decoder boards) can have the GoPack added via solder
points. The solder points for the aforementioned decoders are under Technical
Update Bulletins on
HO Scale Paragon3 models (Revision H and above Paragon3 decoder boards)
have a socket to accept the wiring from a GoPack making it a PlugNPlay
device with no soldering involved.
There is no GoPack for N Scale models at this time.
How do I know which decoder board revision is in my model?
If your models box has the Accepts GoPack logo you
have a Revision H board installed.
your model's box has this logo on it, GoPack! is plug and play.
If you see the small socket directly next to the speaker
output socket on the decoder you have a revision H board.
If you look at the top of the decoder, you will see HO-300-X whatever
is in the place of X is what your board revision is.
Which models are GoPack Ready for plug and play
Models with the Accepts GoPack! logo have the Revision H
or above board (which means it has the socket), and weve done the work to
ensure there is enough space under the shell for it to fit under there.
Will the GoPack! affect my
ability to program on the program track?
Programming on the mainline is no problem with the GoPack!
However, if you'd like to read/write CV's on the program track in Paged
Mode and/or Direct Mode you can either set CV221 to disable the GoPack!
and then let the capacitors discharge (Revision H decoders and above only)
or for a solder type installation you can either wire an On/Off switch
in-line, or unplug the wiring from the GoPack! socket while programming.
Can I send my revision E decoder in for a Revision H
Yes, no problem and just a $20 S&H fee (or $35
International) its a one-for-one swap as long as the Revision E decoder
is working when it arrives. If the board arrives defective, there is a $99
fee for an out-of-warranty replacement decoder in addition to the cost of
Can I send my model in for you to add a GoPack for me?

labor, and shipping back to you for this service. You would be responsible
for shipping the model to us.

Weve not tested for this, and would not guarantee any
compatibility with other models.
Which BLI models cannot work with the GoPack?
Blueline, PCM, and QSI equipped models are not compatible
with the GoPack only Paragon2 and Paragon3 HO Scale.
