I just posted a 7th YouTube video featuring LocoFi in a Dead Rail/battery powered operation.
The New Video is Titled:
Making and Using a Portable Dead Rail Demonstration HO Layout - Part 7
Part 7 Includes;
LocoFi™ On New Tracks Modeling, June 15, 2020
Adding LocoFi™ to My Home Network
LocoFi™ for Large Scales (DC and AC power)
A Massive Update to My Website.
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 massively updated and contains information that is NOT in the YouTube videos.
It also contains information that has has been garnered since the original videos were posted, including several corrections. At times, there is also information on the Webpage that I have not shared on YouTube yet.
The low speed capability of the LocoFi™ decoder still amazes me.
I am getting 45 minutes of actual prototypical run time, on my demo layout, using three Lithium Manganese Oxide (LMO, IMR) or four Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP, IFR) 10440 size batteries.
I also have a section on my Webpage that discusses what I’ve learned about actual operating session run time with some real examples.
Excellent information. Your website https://theampeer.org/HO is highly recommended for dead railing! Thank you.
Glad to see you are having success with deadrailing. How far are you drawing down the batteries before recharging?
After going through track issues with getting the O scale 2 rail brass steam locomotive operational on a club layout it may be time to change from track power to batttery. I had great success with a combo track and battery powered O scale 2 railer operating on a club layout a few years ago. Liked the battery power performance plus no track issues.
Keep up the good work !!!!!
