    The limit switches for frog power are SPDT?

    I tried to run about 14' of 22ga servo wire and that was a miserable failure, so I ended up using a pair of Arduinos, one for each end of the staging...

    What do you have under Options > Colors (Ctrl+Alt+C)? I don't have any yellow tracks displayed, but I do see reddish track if there is a problem (excessive grade, radii too tight, etc.). I've...

    Depending on your Arduino control method, shouldn't this be pretty straightforward? My present turnout solution is a JMRI - Arduino connection, and setting something like this up as a route in JMRI...

    Sort of like soldering tweezers? The Hakko conversion kit for my station is $200, so I've not yet jumped on that boat. I haven't had much luck with soldering wicks so I ended up purchasing a solder...

    Haven't the foggiest, unfortuantely. I've not yet worked with any v5s and almost all of my LokSound are 73100/73199 (I've only three that aren't that form factor). I don't recall if any of them...

    I presume that the other BLI trucks roll freely? On this unit, do both trucks roll poorly or is it just a single truck? At this point, if it were a Kato/Atlas/FVM unit, I'd probably completely...

    Sounds like you’ve got some soldering in your future! The tiny pads on the 73100 always make me a bit nervous.

    Couple of questions: how much noise does it make? Do you get a pulsing of the paint flow as the compressor operates or is it smooth, like one would get from a reservoir?

    Depends on frame mods, I guess. I've installed a 73100 in a GP38-2 and, whilst the rear onboard is acceptable, adding in an SMD for the front lights is now on my to-do list. As for configuring the...

    Could be something like the FVM GP60s and GEVOs where the light pipes and LEDs aren’t lined up quite optimally. On the FVM GEVOs, placing two LEDs, more in line with the light pipes, really does...

    Once we got cv217 set to 50, we could read and set cv’s with my sprog ii. So I don’t think power on the sprog iii was the problem. As noted, cv217 per BLI’s manual has something to do with smoke...

    Not being hugely familiar with that end of the Hill lines, I was puzzled to find only OE plats this morning, and no SPS plats despite the SPS-marked drawing for the loading platform. Maybe it was all...

    Nothing as pretty as Frank17913 is showing off, but spent some time this week working on a loading ramp, based on an SP&S prototype, for a local layout. Dropped it into place this afternoon, where...

    Mark,

    I'll state up front: I can't help with Trainworx trailers. All mine are too early (1960's), although they should be pretty close. That said...

    I like the second plan a little more than the first, but let me go all reach police on you here: depending on your layout height, the 30" depth in the lower right corner may prove problematic for...

    Most recent involved the welded joint on a bandsaw blade failing: bled all over, but got really lucky. A relatively minor cut in the grand scheme of things.

    This is puzzling me. A few more questions for you as I try to understand why the decoder might be doing this.

    1. How did you do the decoder reset?

    2. After the reset, did you try to...
