Nicely done Don.

Thank you guys for your kind comments. Don

Would like to see a picture of the 2 different controllers side by side in bright sun. Surprised they don’t have a picture on the site.


May 2019, RailPro adds Shay sound to sound files. Now available three truck Shay recorded at the Hesston Steam Museum. This is the newer ULT quality file and responds to the loading feature. Video sound demo to be posted soon.

Select new Baldwin 3 chime whistle. YouTube of the exact whistle.

Here is a photo of the standard hand controller screen compared to the brighter screen outdoors in the sun.

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.

Outdoors video called Parade of Steam. Featuring all the Bachmann geared locos operating using the RailPro system. Double heading the Heisler and Shay. Segment on how to create a consist in 10 secs. I am using the SUN/brighter screen version hand controller.

Second video using the new Raton 2-6-0 and Climax to show using the Plug N Play adapter for the RailPro. Select battery or track power switch. See and hear sounds.

Click on link then select the video.
