    Thanks, you told me once, but what is the name of it again, and where can I buy the conductive grease? Bob.

    MTH DCS Explorer for battery power.

    I also need this valve mechanism for the Challenger. The one that I need is a right one. Bob.

    Here is a picture of the glued in charge plug and the DPDT, center off, switch, up is charge and down is run. Center is off. Bob.

    No, the skates come off. I soldered the plus and minus from the battery, through a dpdt, center off, switch, one for charge and the other for power to the Explorer, and then the other plus and minus on the other side of the explorer, goes to the wires that came from the skates to the PS3 module and that is it. Everything, batteries, Explorer card, and speaker is in the coal car. Just got everything working great and now I am putting the loco back together, I think. I tried to get a hold of Ray as I need the washer that goes on the drive wheel that the rods go on. lost one. Do you have an extra? The size is ID= 7.25mm and the OD is 11.85, maybe12 mm. thickness is about .58 mm. Let me know. Bob.

    It's battery in and then the other side goes to the skate wires. That's all. You have reduced functions, but all the important stuff is there, Bob.

    Success, I got the Challenger running with the Explorer and my phone, now I have to figure out how to mechanically put it back together, as my memory isn't that good. Bob.

    Oh, then I agree, the foam will cause less damage, if it gets that far. Bob.

    Here are some pictures of the Explorer mounted in the coal car of my Challenger. Also remotely mounted the antennae. Had to reduce the height of the speaker resonator by about an inch. Batteries are also in the coal car, so, no extra car needed. Bob.

    Here are some pictures of the mounting of the Explorer in my Challenger coal car. I used the stand offs from the plastic case and had to shorten the speaker resonator about an inch. I also mounted the antennae remotely and fits nicely. The batteries are also in the coal car, so I don't have to drag an additional car if I had used a TIU unit. Bob.

    No, I bought it from Model Train Stuff, 111.99, best price that I could find. I am starting on the outside track laying, should go faster than I thought, thanks to my jig. Inside is done, about 200 ft. Got any SVRR switch you want to sell? I need two wide radius left hands, and one wide rt. hand. Bob.

    Please send me a picture of the USA item that you are talking about, I have never seen that type of clamp, sorry your explanation is still not clear to me. " Defiantly better than a brick"? What does that mean?
