HO 4-6-0 Brass DCC w/Sound Install

The Train Buddy installs a DCC Sound decoder from Train Control Systems with Keep Alive and a Soundtraxx “sugar cube” speaker. There should be 4 (now 5, maybe 6) parts to the whole install. It takes awhile to upload, sorry. I can’t afford, nor have access to, fiber yet. The install discusses topics of planning installs, wiring harnesses, soldering tips, LED installs, brass steam engine issues and solutions, making number boards and just a bunch of downright practical mechanical and electrical sense.

Clinics and Camaraderie

Fridays has often been a time for the “locals” to get together and talk about model railroading (and sometimes some other “stuff”) On this particular Friday we went outside where Train Buddy Grif led the discussion on Making Trees with Scenic Express SuperTree(TM) product. Usually in stock at the Train Buddy – 653-214 for the value pack, 653-220 for the HO/O starter kit and 653-215 for the super value case.
