New to battery power/radio control - choice of brand?

  • Hi Guest

    We will be moving G Scale Central to a new server at 7pm GMT on Monday 30th January, if you see this message after that time then you are still on the old server so do not post anything as it will not be transferred to the new one. Once this message is no longer visible to you, then you are on the new server.

    There will be no site changes at all, just moving to a new server (faster, shinier, better etc etc)

    Paul

Nope, oval speaker is in the cab floor. Nice speaker provided by USA trains.

I have one, the speaker is not enclosed, it can be improved... it's ok. It sounds a lot better if you enclose the back of the speaker, but of course that makes it more of a challenge due to space.

I went with a single board solution, track power DCC which makes it a lot easier. Have not converted the smoke unit yet, I think I may give up on the mechanical puffer. Funny the puffing smoke is not listed, just "operating smoke".

For those who don't know, there's actually a mechanical mechanism with a piston to make it puff... but it looks and works crummy.
