DCC - Electrical
First and foremost, let me say that at this point I am not interested in RailPro or radio control systems in general. The Tam Valley system is interesting and something I would like to experiment with, but right now I don't see myself investing in it for every model, even if I could find the space and money (which I can't). While I am not opposed to the concept of systems other than DCC, it would take a lot to convince me that the investment in a different system is worthwhile and wise over the long term.
The situation at the moment:
To All: I have been operating with a Super Chief DCC System by Digitrax for a number of years now.
I seem to have problems with the system every time I use it!.I have come to the end. I am going
try out NCE's Pro Cab starter system and see if their system suits me better. I have no reason
I need some help wiring some ditch lights. The picture is of a Atlas GP 40 Gold series. The plug in the middle of the picture is for the head lights and number boards. It has 6 plugs, but only two are being used. When I plug the ditch lights in I can not get them to work at all. If the touch the head light wires the work fine. Any ideas how to make this work?
The Digitrax 164 decoder has 2 connectors. One is the usual 9 pin everyone uses. The other is a 10 pin for the speaker and capacitor. I am looking for a source for that 10 pin connector.
While I am not new to MRH Magazine, I am new to these forums. I am trying to figure out how to get a message to Bruce Petarca. I purchased his article on installing sound in a Kato NW2 and I have a couple of questions for him. I was told I could reach him in the forums section of this site. Can anyone explain how I can address Bruce?
Greetings all, just wondering if any one may be able to help me out??, I recently picked up a Riverossi Big Boy, the digital version, which came without a manual, or a programing guide. The problem is that I cant get to go, I have tried everything in dcc, but nothing happens, and in dc it moves, but there is no control over the speed. Hopeing someone out there may know something, thanks in advance,......Jim
I have some Atlas #8 custom line mark IV and want to power the frog for DCC. How to power the frog?
Is there a way to obtain the Tsunami sounds from their decoder to use in large, ride on scale? I use a Phoenix system now but Tsunami has better, more varied, sounds. They are, however, intended for use in HO etc. and controlled by DCC. I want to use it in 1½" scale and control without DCC. Us there a way to do this?
