I can't imagine ANYONE testing every possible long address to validate their code.

 

It took long enought to go through and test half of the 36 suspect addresses to check for the error.  I cant imagine trying to test ~10k address.  One would go bonkers.

Decoders arrived in my mailbox today.  Might install and test one or two tomorrow.  Will let you guys know.

 

After reading about other people having paragon 3 problems, I recalled this thread and decided to update you guys.  I recently purchased a railroad space which happens to have other rooms on top of it (some of which are more railroad spaces). 

I have not had time to replace the boards.

Buying a new home will do that.

Well, two years later.  The new boards are in.

Well, 

I quit the club I was in, so I dont have a layout on which to operate them.  The old decoders went back to BLI before Christmas.

My current modular layout will not support six axle locomotives by design.

I'll update you all when I finally get the home railroad up and running.
