User Showcase – Ken Trossen
Category : UserShowcase
This is Ken’s installation of BlueRail Trains bluetooth controller board in a Bachmann OF 4-4-0. He relocated the Bachmann board to a lower position to clear the BlueRail board. The BlueRail hooks up with a 9 pin to 8 pin connector. The wood cross pieces are where double sided foam tape is attached to install the BlueRail board. Ken decided to make it dead rail also. In a odd bit of luck the 430mAh 11.1V LiPo fits snuggly in the oil bunker. The tender shell needed to be trimmed a bit to fit the battery. Ken said it went together nicely, and runs beautifully. Next step: lettering and mild weathering.
