    • Greg,

        Good question. I did see additional road names such as UP, SP, Penn, Santa Fe. Also 3 coach numbers. That's a good thing.

    • Hey Robby, what's the current information on the USAT heavyweights? Is there any predicted date?

       

      Thanks, Greg

      (p.s. will be ordering 1 of each in Santa Fe)

    • This past weekend I attended the NE Train Expo sponsored by the HUB Division NER outside Boston. Many HO, S, O and G scale modelers. We featured the RailPro system demonstrating battery power for all these scales. Even had two HO U25B's running on the floor with a crowd watching. There was  a posting on the Facebook HO modelers group , with a photo stating " is the future now"! There were 138 replies.  

      At these shows you get to use the Handheld Controller and see how easy it to operate the color touch screen and adjust settings. 

      For the main demonstration I ran a Weaver O scale FA loco  on the Metro West club layout. Selecting four different power sources. Transformer based constant DC, NCE power supply, NCE DCC command station on address 3 with  a Pro Cab and on board battery.  For the DCC function, just press enable DCC, select the address . When you press the light icon it is mapped to F0. Or you can quickly redirect to a different number.

      There are two loco modules w/sound. HO, ON30, is $89 and Large scale is $167. The Handheld controller is $270.

    • I've just become a crabby old fart .  The battery is working great! Planning on getting another soon. I charged it for the first time (I think) last weekend. My Smart Charger gave a new message I've never seen before when it finished - Rather than flashing "FULL" it flashed "CAPA" which I assume means Capacity. I have the charger manual, but haven't looked it up yet.

    • The first 36 seconds has those graphics and music. The rest of the video is a quick pace instructional presentation. Tim Ring packed in a lot of  info during those 16 minutes. There are two shorter videos called part 1 and part 2 covering the basic technology without the DCC component.

      John, remember to charge up your battery.

    • I might be easy and it might be a great product, but that video is unwatchable - horrible music, garish graphics and a monotone moderator that throws features out fastrer than they can be comprehended by this old geezer. The website isn't much better.

    • I have been asked about the DCC functions to be controlled. You will not believe how easy this is to setup. Please view this 16 minute video for a demonstration. The first part explains the RailPro Direct Radio Technology and Ultimate Series sounds. At 12:54 the DCC section begins. http://www.ringengineering.com/DccHome.htm

      Thanks for viewing.

    • I have purchased two of these systems from Don and put them into two of my diesel engines now and loving it.  The sound is fantastic and the interface makes programming and adjusting a breeze compared to DCC.  I do wish they would setup a page so you could preview sounds before loading them to a decoder but hopefully they will offer this in the future.

    • This product is a game changer. Imagine having all those cool DCC functions w/sound plus Direct Radio control on ONE small board. Choose track or battery power.

      Intro price of the loco module with sound is $180.  Compare this to AirWire or the Revolution plus add a Phoenix board. $306 or $267. Next add the HC-2 color touch screen handheld controller for $270. Compare to [email protected]$165 or [email protected]$165. Total initial investment for RailPro is $450. Compare to $471 or $432. The ongoing savings is on each additional loco which is only $180.  

      If you want Wireless DCC functions without setting CV's or indexing, simple English text and icons for all functions, Large speed knob, USB programmable engine type & whistles, bells, etc, 6 amp loco module with 8 Amp stall current, quick three steps to MU locos, then this could be an great option.

    • Yes, I have to agree with Fred. Gilbert made some roller bearing end caps for my Arisocraft roller bearing trucks, I had lost one of the caps. The replacement cap Gilbert made is identical to the Aristo ones, and worked flawlessly.

       

      And yes, Gilbert sent my truck back to me.

    •   "EGADSZOOKS"...Gilbert, you done good...

        I hadn't looked at Gilbert's web page for quite a while, but with some spare minutes this morning, I browsed it.

           I knew he had added some new parts, but had no idea, of the extent of his "Library"...

           Great work, young fellow.

            To others reading this;

                        Yes, I have helped Gilbert, along with others, but I still must thank him for stepping up, with this treasure trove of needed parts.

       If anyone else is looking for a needed part, or see the future need for one...please let Gilbert know, and if possible, send him the part you need and he will make a new one...and at the same time, add the part to his library. (Rest assured...He does return your original part)

       If you don't have the part, sometimes the guys around here can find one for Gilbert...

         NO...I DON"T GET FREE PARTS FROM GILBERT...I only get the opportunity to purchase parts that would not be available if not for GLX.

    • Thanks to Henk Vanzijl and our Father Fred ( Fred Mills ) of the OVGRS, I have been busy copying parts from a 0-4-0 Switcher. This has made a great number of new listings for replacement parts on my website. This latest session started with a request from a Mr. Seldon of Texas needing a replacement for his broken Crosshead Slide Right.

      In the coming weeks, a Pilot Truck for a C-16 is next in line to be copied.

       Maybe if things go quiet from time to time Gilbert could diversify a little.  I have a couple of bear  cameos on my RR and of course there is a good trade to be done in religious artefacts.

      OK, I'm assuming the person who voted on my reputation on 2 different posts here,  it was not an "increase" reputation. Perhaps it was, but most likely not.

       

      Assumption and facts do not go hand in hand. I thought you were a factual man? I can tell you it wasn't me because as you know I have no issues stating my mind publicly.

      However some good did come out of this as Maynard "Thanked" Fred!

    • Yes, and really sorry to get this derailed, but I worked for 2 Japanese companies, and have purchased about 6 "japan only" computers, all with Windows, including the one pictured from 1997. I'm also very familiar with fuzzy logic, one of the first uses was in Japan using rice cookers, and I have one from 20 years ago, a "National" brand (known as Panasonic here). (google "first appliance to use fuzzy logic")

       

      Really trying to help TAC, but his computer cannot have a fuzzy logic operating system and have windows on top of it. Unfortunately, some of the "tweaks" in the Japanese version of Windows XP and Vista really interfered with some mainstream Windows programs, so if he has something really old, and it's XP or Vista, and he's trying to use a current browser, he may have an issue, but the bottom line was that there is nothing wrong with the GLX web site, and did not want people to start hammering GLX to provide them printouts when it's really an excellent web site.

       

      I'm re-iterating that GLX is about the only source for replacement parts for the now-defunct Aristo-Craft and I'm grateful he has made so many parts available, and hoping for more!

    • Remember Greg; some so called "Adults" act like spoiled children, and to get one of them to admit to doing such a thing, especially when challenged is a bit too much to expect...  Thank you for trying to share some foreign computer knowledge with us, but it is mostly outside my computer interest area.  I pretty much only use a computer for simple communication, and so far I have had nothing to do with the computer "Innards" from Japan, even when communicating with my good friend, Terry Foley...!!

      If someone has an issue with my 2 last posts, please come back with facts and information, rather than hide behind a voting button.

       

      This is an open forum, and if you post something unbelievable, as an adult, you should be prepared to back your statements with facts.

      p.s. the word fantastic means unbelievable, not "great"...
