    • To see the RailPro system operating at the NGRC Portland, OR, please visit Terry Meyer's layout during the tours. I will not be able to attend. Terry has the system with the brighter hand controller screen installed in his USAT SD-40.

    • Hi Sean, the REVO is doing well.  Reliability is great and so are Sales. Navin is available for any kind of REVO and Aristo Craft service. Call or email him. No web site for service. 

      Navin's phone is 201-565-6069.   email:


      JK released a new steam sound, S_N90 which is the best so far. Press # 4 for short whistle. Press #3 for crossing. Press 2 for bell that rings for 10 sec. Much better,  high #9, medium #8 and , low #9 for volume control. But the steam engine has a really good chuff. Got to love it for free!!

    • Hi Joe, thanks for the input. I will pass this onto JK.

    • Press and hold #9 to increase volume, press and hold #7 to decrease volume would make more sense.

    • Revo update.

      I asked JK for variable sound volume and he said YES!!  I explained how Dallee and Phoenix offer this capability.  In the next revision of the receiver firmware he will add it. Not sure when or what buttons he will choose. I suggested using button 9. Press and hold  for increase volume and press and hold to lower volume. 

      What would you guys like to see?

    • Hi Steve, you will need to get the USB programmer to update your REVO RX.  After you get one or borrow one, download the USB program from Precision R/C web site.  Next download the SD60 and SD33eco files. 

      To use the USB programmer follow the one page instructions. It is a two step procedure to upload new sounds.


      Enjoy, Don

    • Yea!   Now, how do I upload it?

    • Hi Guys and ladies. Here is an update to the REVO RX.

      Sounds SD60 and SD33eco now have a manual horn. Use button 4!!!

      When using the USB programmer remember to press reset to load another sound and if necessary remove the USB programmer and reinsert if it will not load another sound. 

      I keep asking for variable sound level not three steps but we got a manual horn.

    • 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.
