Part 6 explains why the 3S LiPo powered Dead Rail conversion was changed to use a trailing battery car for an IMR Lithium-ion 3S 350mAh pack, and why it is a “better” way to convert to Dead Rail in HO scale locomotives. The LocoFi™ system was used for locomotive control and sound for this battery powered, Dead Rail, conversion.
My Webpage has a lot more information on this and related topics.
It is titled, “A Journey Into HO Scale Model Railroading in the 21st Century”.
The page has been updated and contains information that is NOT in the YouTube videos. It also contains information that has has been garnered since the videos were posted, including several corrections. At times, there is also information on the Webpage that I have not shared on YouTube yet.
It was fun to put the two Dead Rail Converted LocoFi™ controlled locomotives on the layout and run them together with their battery cars. The low speed capability of the LocoFi™ decoder still amazes me.
