jayhey posted a topic in Battery Power & ControlI have an old REA Express (Aristocrat) ALCO FA-1 engine I want to convert to battery. I use the Aristocraft (CREST) Train Engineer. The issue I have is that that engine required something called "Pulse Width Control" included with the REA transformer for smooth operation. When used with my non REA transformer, the engine started out 'jerky'. I would like to fix this issue when I convert to battery power if possible. Any suggestions? Also, I have been getting batteries from one source, boards from Crest, etc. Anyone know of a one-place specialty store where I can get me LiPo batteries, connectors, resistors, etc. ?
There are still a few things to install, but I am almost there. I am charging the batteries and it does function on aux power, so I think everything is alright. The cab is MTH, the sides, roof and ends are my own, machined on a Bridgeport mill. The electronics are MTH, sound, lights, everything. I am using NWSL truck and adapted the speed sensor. The B unit houses the batteries, the baggage car houses the TIU. I will be showing a video shortly of it running. I sure like the mars light and the number boards show up real bright. Does anyone know if Protosound 2 has brake squeal sounds? OK here are some pics.
