RailPro Software Updates / Re: Gevo-12 Tier 4 ULT

...As a side note, the file that Loksound uses for their ET44 was recorded from a GE E4C6T.  I can't find any information on that.

Apparently that's what BNSF called GECX's demo ET44AC's. From https://www.flickr.com/photos/kodachrome9319/16540335104/.

I unhooked the old PWR and while pulling out the - wire, the end panel of the outlet fell off revealing misaligned parts inside. Next I hooked up the new PWR and it worked fine. After repairing the old outlet and putting it back together, I hooked it back up and it now works fine. Apparently the negative wire was just barely making good contact at first, then subsequently on the second power up it worked as it was supposed to (I guess).  ;D

So all is well and back to normal. Now I can focus my energy on painting the walls in my next room, sky blue.

Thanks Kevin.

Just want to give a shout out to Don Sweet of RCS New England for recommending I use a diode on the 5v+ source for the proto couplers.  MUCH better.


Have Fun!

Hi Kevin, I checked the trackage and looked under the layout for stray wires and it all looks OK. I recently got a new PWR 56. I'm going to plug that in and see if I get the same results. That should tell me whether it's the old PWR or the power strip I have it plugged into.

Thanks, Kevin

Railpro sounds soooo nice with those big speakers!  I'm jealous of your scale and all that space you have.  The GP38 sounds excellent.

That's a new one for me.  Do some additional testing and let's see what happens.  Plug it into another outlet or power strip and see if it does the same.  I'm sure you checked the tracks to be sure nothing is shorting on them.

Several days ago we had a short power outage during a storm. Ever since then when I turn on my PWR 56, the red light comes on. Then I can turn it off and immediately turn it back on and the green light comes on and everything is fine. Any ideas?

Yep - this is a good idea that works fine.  I have a spare LM-3S-G on my bench named "Bench Test" to which I load sounds for review. I control it with the simulator, but also have it loaded into my handheld. Only trouble I have is that it's connected to a good bookshelf speaker that sounds tons better than the small speakers in some of my locos  ::)

Thanks Bill -

I'll let you know.  Not quite ready to go there, I still have modules yet to be installed!
