I was successful installing the PWR-56 on my layout and the Lm-3S in the Atlas C420. I put the original board back in, used the 8 to 9 pin harness and a 10mm round MRC speaker I bought on ebay for a buck. I have lights sounds, and successful motion on the first try. I have a few dead spots in track work that will need my attention, and larger speakers for future installs would be better, but I am happy that everything worked on the first try. Thank you to the RailPro users who offered advice and encouragement.

Kevin,

Thank You, I ordered some 8 to 9 harnesses from Yankee Dabbler late last week. Should be here this week. If there is not enough room, I can hardwire everything direct and just skip the board? Any issues with the headlights? Is the motor already insulated, and I can just wire direct to the motor leads? Sorry for all the questions. I'm sure when I get the first one up and running, the rest will go easier.

Alan,

Great Website for your railroad. I've been to the Orrville Depot several times. Near Thanksgiving Weekend they always have an open house, along with open houses for several other area model railroads. Check out the "Route 30 express". Most likely will be cancelled this year :(   I grew up about two miles from the Pennsylvania yard and Roundhouse in Crestline, Ohio. Saw it decline and then be torn down. The yard became a roadrailer facility for a while, now is a large grain loading facility. Usually see about 20 -40 covered hoppers on the tracks. As a side note, we also lived in Marlette Michigan for a couple years in the 80s when I was a driver for Schwan Foods. Was back up there last July on vacation. Small World!

I think I am ready to give my first install a try. I have an Atlas C420, and a pair of C424's that have all run well on DC. Popped the top on the c420 and I see a square 8 pin. Does anyone have any experience with this type of install they would like to share? I wish I had a user manual for these engines, but bought them at a swap meet a year ago. Any advice is appreciated.

Hi everyone,
My name is Sandy Hadsell (Named after Koufax), from northeast Ohio, and I am new to Railpro. I have been modeling in HO on and off since I was ten. I am currently building a medium sized layout in the basement of our new home. All of my previous layouts were wired for DC and after reviewing several DCC options, I chose Railpro because of the Wireless Feature and Touchscreen simplicity shown in the videos. I am also interested in safe and easy battery powered installs. I am currently modeling the Green Bay and Western in the Wisconsin Rapids and Plover areas. Electronics and wiring are not my strong suit, so I will be watching the videos and reading the posts from the User Group on installation tips and other advice. Thank You for establishing this user group to help us all enjoy the hobby more.
