      Overnight something went awry with the styling of the site.  I will work on it today.  No idea what happened.


      So, what did happen, is it fixed, and when it happens again can someone alert me? I'm always missing out on the action...

    • Hello all,


      I’m posting this as a feeler to see if anyone is interested.  My “startup company”, the Camarillo Pacific Railroad Company, has been commissioned to make another run of the all famous “Datum Precision Coupler Box” that was last available almost 8 years ago.  If you aren’t familiar with this product, it is a metal box that was developed by Ted Doskaris and is one of the main components to the many Kadee adaptations he has made to his mostly Aristo-Craft locomotives. If you would like more info, he has thoroughly documented them on Greg Elmassian’s website.


      We would be selling the pair for $40, reflecting today's costs, plus shipping.  For bulk orders of 30 or more pairs, we can discuss over the phone about bulk pricing. 


      If you are interested in ordering these metal coupler box pairs, please send me a direct message with your:


      - First and last name

      - Mailing Address

      - Phone number

      - Email address

      - Quantity of coupler box Pairs


      Thank You,

    • Hello Michael.

      Thanks for the information.

      The problem is not really the batteries.

      The VIPER specs are for 12 volts nominal.  Great if you can fit 10 x NiMh or NiCd cells in a pack. They can handle 15 volts actual, but not 15.1 volts actual.

      In all other facets the VIPER ESC's are terrific. Low cost, prewired with JST plugs and sockets and a genuine 6 amps if needed.

      They are potted and waterproof, so are not user serviceable, but I have yet to blow one up.
