also, are you using a KA? or PBM? If a KA, what brand? (PBM is Ring's Keep Alive Product)

If you have KA's on Bridge rectifiers, your LM is only seeing 13.25v as there is a voltage drop on the bridge rectifier.

You'll want the LM-3S-G for G scale. It's made for the higher Voltages used in G scale.

If you don't want independent control of the lights, I expect you could place both lights on the same output.

Can you take the KA out and try it again?

Just found it illuminating (funny?) that Tim leaped all the way to fire hazard

Absolutely.

Tim responded it was a fire hazard. He seems paranoid of being sued or styrene is now considered a fire suppressant.

Most DCC boards are bare to begin with.

I'm guessing cooling would be best if you left it unwrapped, you'd just have to be mindful of potential shorts.

without the plastic shell?

Yes, Alan has done that. You can wrap the LM in Kapton tape to protect it, but be aware, removal of the casing is likely the end of any warranty on the unit.

That is great work Tim, I can't wait to see where this goes in the next experiment!

This is the instruction manual for the LM-3S-G, It indicates that there is a 9 pin connector needed for the lights and speakers.
I am not sure if this connector is included with the LM-3S-G.

I still want the ability to "coast" the train so it drops to idle while moving, or lock the speed while sending the prime mover to run 8 for hills (akin to Loksound).  I find ways to get around it but it would be nice to have those features at my fingertips.

You do have them, it's called "Manual Notching" ;)

Suggestions:
1. make sure your software is all up to date on the HC and the LM's
2. if the units are not broken in yet, do the current load test again. (a few times as the units get broken in)
